Flight Simulators Midlands was set up 5 years ago by Captain Chris Rigby on retirement from Ryanair. He had previously worked for BA, EasyJet, Thomsons in both the schedule and charter market. He wanted to offer both professional pilots and the public, the opportunity to fly low cost simulators for both professional and amateur training.
The company now has 3 simulators. A Boeing 737, a 747 and an Airbus 320. All are generic type machines and as they are non-licensed, they offer a professional experience at low cost for pilots coming up to assessment details with prospective employers.
“Just a quick note to say that I received a phone call from British Airways last week to say that I had successfully passed the simulator assessment and I am now in the hold pool awaiting a course. Just wanted to say a big thank you to all of the team at Flight Simulators Midlands. I know that the sim prep helped hugely and I felt confident and relaxed on the day itself. Thank you again for your help and I will be recommending you to other friends and colleagues going through this process”.
Just one of many emails that we have received and we are of course delighted to have helped someone on their way.
We also have several pilots who come on a regular basis just to practice their flying skills and regain their scan which is so easily lost in todays automatic environment. Various airlines have also used our facilities to run their assessment programmes in, so you can be sure of a realistic challenge.
