Must really love his job ! Most people want to forget work when they get home.

On a more serious note what he has done is a clever idea, making a few bob from people who either want to take up flying a plane for whatever reason, or just those who want a real time view from the cockpit, such as children.

At one time, in days long ago pilots on some airlines would allow children to come into the cockpit during the flight.

We are born into history and history is born into us.

He could take his partner into it, set it to turbulence and the earth really will move.

The captain of MH370 had a simulator in his house; I hope the similarity between the two ends there.

With disastrous consequences.

 

I would love to have a go on a flight simulator, though.

Just to make it more realistic, I wonder how he would respond to an AK47 and "take me to Libya" Funny

Too old me! I'd want a stimulator, flight or other, but the garage is cluttered and SWMBO would not approve or be interested.Crazy2

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

 That was fascinating Shocked

 

I enjoyed my myself flying a light plane around Doncaster.

The pilot took the aircraft up to 1000 feet and gave me the controls.

After 20 minutes of me wandering around in the sky he took back control and we landed.

Loved it.

I'm left wondering if there is something called compulsive pilot disorder.

Ibrar Ul-Haq did so well on the flight simulator test on the Krypton Factor that he went on to become a BA captain.  The pilot instructor who oversaw the test couldn't believe he'd never flown an aircraft before, let alone a passenger jet.  I suppose some people just have it.
