Hi

I thought this may be of interest to some on here who are looking at finding flight simulators to go and try (once we can go out again!) so I hope you don’t mind me posting.

From 2014 to 2018 I used to organise an annual visit to go to the BA full motion simulators based at London Heathrow. Over the years I did it we had just under 80 people come along.

Sadly BA stopped visits a year ago and we haven’t been able to find a way to overcome that. The good news is that I have been working with two BA pilots over the last twelve months, one of which Elliott actually took one of our groups back in 2017. We really wanted to do something to try and keep this going, and this is the result.

The first stage of what we are doing is a flight simulator directory, so a comprehensive database of all simulators everywhere in the world. As part of that we have been visiting and reviewing as many as we can over the last few months – there has been a temporary halt to that at the moment of course. Additionally, whilst we are all at home we are starting to add articles which may be of interest to the simulator community, and the first few are up online. The overall plan is to be one-stop portal for high quality flight simulation.


There are links on the site to our other social media channels, for example on Twitter you can find us here: https://twitter.com/flightsimrevs

The next stage is to start developing a virtual pilots club which will be an online forum and chances to meet up and have visits to various sims with instructors who will hopefully be commercial pilots. That part I suppose is more like what we did with BA, but it will take a bit of time to get going as we are concentrating on the flight sim directory and review site at the moment.

I thought this would be related enough to mention on here in the avgeek thread and hope it may be of interest to some. If you are interested, please visit our site and follow us on social media. I am happy to answer any questions as well.

Thanks, and hope you staying safe and healthy.

Kind regards

Alexis
