How Sessions Operate During COVID-19
We have reduced the number of available simulators in each flight session to obtain social distancing. Initial instruction is provided via pre-recorded video. All stations, flight yokes and throttles are disinfected and idled for 90-minutes before reuse. We follow a flight instruction model. Our instructors are real pilots and they will show you how to properly control an aircraft, including the all-important landing procedure.
The Flight Sim Zone is wheelchair accessible.
