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.

Have you ever wanted to take your family up to the cockpit and show them what it’s like? Believe it or not, many airline pilots want to do the same thing but cannot.
Due to the many security measures introduced over the past few years, pilots are unable to take their family members into “the office” so they can experience flying a commercial jet airliner.

Our cockpit from a different angle
is a fixed base glass cockpit synthetic Flight Training Device (FTD) modelled on the Boeing 737-800NG. It has been certified as a Synthetic Flight Trainer (SFT) to Category B under the FSD2 regulations by both the Civil Aviation Authority in New Zealand and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority in Australia.
We’re sure you’ll agree that this system provides an excellent platform for an introduction to jet flying and the glass cockpit environment.

Take a peek at our cockpit
Many people are interested in just seeing what the inside of a 737 cockpit looks like. Some want to check out our simulator before they commit to buying one of our Flight Packages
If you’re in the city and want to have a look at our simulator, the best time to drop by is between 2pm and 3pm every day. This is when our instructors take their lunch breaks, so the simulator is generally not being used and one instructor is always on hand to let you have a look inside.
While visiting the simulator, you can also check out our wide range of merchandise available, including clothing, books, aircraft models and cockpit DVDs.
Earlier this week a caller to radio 3AW was lamenting the loss of cockpit access in the post-911 world. Fortunately Check Captain Carlo wasn’t busy flying or arranging new deals and was actually listening in at the time. Showing the same skills he uses to survive a V1 cut on a wet runway, Carlo quickly called up and got through to Denis Walter, explaining how Flight Experience Melbourne could help let people experience the cockpit now that security has closed the doors.
We’re working to get audio from the station and will include it here if we get it.
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.
