It was this program offered by UAL where you could pay to use any of there flight simulators in Denver. There were three kinds of packages you could buy for each aircraft. Bronze, Silver, and Gold packages. They all offered atleast 1 hours in the sim and some other things with the Gold Package being the most expensive. They had the whole fleet of simulators being offered.

The hijackers never practiced flying into buildings. There is no skill there. All they needed to do is learn how to fly a plane. You never specifically practiced making right turns when learning to drive. If you can drive a car you can make a right turn. If you can fly a plane you can fly it into something.

I'm not a big fan of aiplane simulators but rather the ones on helecopters rule! You can go anywhere. They are even useful to see the yankees play from above. with commercial planes you're only joy is lading. not much of a view unless you are wither landing or after takeoff. It gets boring at crusing level.
Nothing can beat combat simulators of choppers and fighter planes. These simulators make the commercial ones look like a slow flight to grandma's.
I already tried BA's the only thing good of that was landing and takeoff in not so good weather and seeing the cities from the flightdeck after takeoff and before landing.

When I was out in Denver last March I was able to fly the 747-400 simulator. My grandma new a pilot trainer and Gina was able to give me a tour of the Facility and get me into the simulator for a while. The place is great they also have a gift shop where you can buy UAL stuff, I got a UAL shirt, Pin of a 757, a logbook and these posters of the cockpit of the 777 and 737 that real airline pilots use to familiarize them selves with the cockpits. When my scanner works again I will up-load some pics of a 777, 747-400, 737 simulators. The best thing of all of it was that I got to do it all for free. -Brett Simon
