Flight Simulators

Fri May 06, 2005 11:49 am

In June, I'm going to Long Beach at the Alteon facility to use the 737-700 simulator. If anyone has ever been there, or knows what it's like, please feel free to post it here.

- It's impossible to fly an ILS approach to DH while inverted.

- With one reverser deployed, the resulting donuts on a snow-covered runway are spectacular.

- Barrel rolls performed under 1000' are rarely successful.

I've heard.

been there for the MD-11 simulator, MidnightMike arranged it for me. It was great! I'm sure the 737 sim is better than the MD-11. You will surely have a great time.

I did the 717 out in ATL, arranged under Midwest though, its incredibly simple to fly. All you do is program the FMS or just fly the FD for heading and altitude. Only nav radio is auto programmed when you select an instrument approach.
Good Luck to all Skyway Pilots! It's been great working with you!
