Airline pilot experience

You’ll discover about the word of operating this aircraft as an Airline Pilot. You’ll get to fly the aircraft simulator from take off to landing. The flight experiences are designed for you to be the Pilot - with a little help from your Instructor.  The sessions start with a pre-flight briefing, an introduction to the how you fly a plane and basic aircraft systems, but if you'd like to know more - just ask.

Fear of flying

With winter holiday season here, if you, or someone you know are worried about flying it can be debilitating.

Often people would love to book a holiday and can’t because of this fear.  It stops others from enjoying their holiday to the full.  These feelings are very real, but with a little understanding about what’s going on during the flight, these fears and feelings can be reduced and in most cases relieved all together.

Crew room

My name is Matt Briggs, and I've been fascinated about the idea of flying since childhood. I have been lucky enough to have been taught and inspired by two of the worlds most amazing aviators. It is with that privilege in mind that I aspire to share the best in good airmanship.

I love aviation for so many reason, and with help of friends & family, the Jetsim Centre has been established to share that passion with people of all ages, and from different backgrounds.

My first solo

My flying started with a private pilots licence at Exeter Airport in 1992, and then in 2004, I resigned from a marketing career to study at Oxford Aviation, two years later qualifying as a commercial airline pilot. After that progressing an ATR 42/72 type rating and then a single engine Flying Instructor - it was teaching others that showed me a whole new level of airmanship.

So, if flying the heavy metal is on your bucket list of things to do, and you're interested in booking a flight, or maybe it's for a present, perhaps someone you know needs help with fear of flying - please do get in touch.


 

The technical bit...

A 220 degree projection screen ensures a fully immersive experience.  The simulator replicates the real world aircraft, based on the Boeing 737NG 800 - a real Pilots flying machine.  It has fully function FMC's loaded with a global database of airports, nav aids etc. We can enter flight planning, performance and fuel data to reproduce a complete airline flight from gate to gate.  The autopilot and all instruments, switches and gauges operate systems onboard.  Checklists can be used for start procedures, practice failures and emergency scenarios. The simulation can also use real time weather conditions or be programmed from the METAR and TAFF aviation forecasts, we have some pre-set scenarios too, such as thunderstorms, low cloud to test your instrument scan, sunshine and snow etc.
