Flight Experience – Flying in a Boeing 737-800NG Simulator!

I was given a fantastic 21st present by a few of my close friends, an 1hr flight in a Boeing 737-800NG Simulator at Flight Experience, Perth.

I flew initially from Munich Airport to Innsbruck Airport, which was amazing, landing in between mountains on each side into a valley. I then did some landings at the old Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong, which was the banked landing on Runway 13. I concluded with a landing into some crosswinds into London Heathrow Airport.

One thing I did note was that the aircraft was very slow to respond, mainly on the control column as well as applying thrust (both increasing and decreasing back to idle).

A great experience, thanks to the instructor Surith for guiding me through all the landings and takeoffs as well as all the instrumentation onboard the simulator! Thanks also to my girlfriend Steph for taking all the photos (were all on a 35L mounted on my 5D2).
