1st flight in 60 days

After 60 days on the ground owing to the Coronavirus restrictions, I was eager to get current again.


Landing a 737 on a short grass strip

In this episode, I have a bit of fun with the X-Plane 11 home simulator, since real flying has been out of the question recently. I practise some engine failures after take off, stalls, and see if I can take off and land a 737 from a short grass airfield.


Keeping current on a home simulator

Before I learnt to fly real aeroplanes, I flew simulated ones on Microsoft Flight Simulator X.  Because of the recent Covid lockdown, I decided to revive my virtual flying.

Can a private pilot land a 737?

I’m thrown into the deep end, and made to land a 737 simulator, after a hypothetical emergency on-board, that leaves the flight deck crew incapacitated.


Aerodrome procedures series

I’ve been busy filming a new mini series, demonstrating aerodrome and radiotelephony procedures in the UK.
