In yet another great cockpit video from the team at Intelligent Television and Video (ITVV), we go aboard a Cathay Pacific 747-400, joining the crew of CX250 as they fly from London’s Heathrow airport (LHR – EGLL) to Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong (HKG – VHHX). In addition to following a flight in a 747-400, this video also provides great training for a flight in our 737 simulator.
The Primary Flight Display in a 747 is very similar to the one from a 737 with similar navigation inputs and effects. In addition, the autopilot controls on the glare shield operate in the same manner as the ones on a 737. By watching the step-by-step descriptions provided in this video, you will definitely improve your knowledge of the systems in our 737 simulator.

Polar Air Cargo 747
Once again the Just Planes team take you on another fantastic cockpit ride, this time with crews from Polar Air Cargo as they fly 747-200F and 747-400F freighters around the world. As with other productions from Just Planes, you are a “fly on the wall” of the cockpit as the crew go about their business, getting to watch their actions and listen in on their discussions with Air Traffic Controllers. From time to time a member of the crew will provide a presentation on a particular aspect of the flight or aircraft. Produced for the aviation enthusiast, the content can be quite heavy going at times for the casual view, but pilots, flight simmers and aviation buffs should feel right at home.

Virgin Blue 737
Imagine you were given the opportunity to sit on the flight deck of a number of Virgin Blue 737 flights around Australia, this would be the video you would take. While not as technically in depth as the new ITTV Cockpit DVDs
we’ve recently added, this is our most popular DVD as it provides a view of the flying that’s going on around Australia as you read this. The familiar landscape, accents and procedures of Australian commercial flying certainly help to make this a fun DVD to watch.
