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.

Anne-Maree Biggar went flying with Jenna
Anne-Maree Biggar from Channel 10′s 9am with David & Kim show did a live 30 minute cross-over back to the studio this morning from our simulator. She and her crew came in, set up and covered the “What’s on this weekend in Melbourne” segment from the flight deck of our 737-800.
Anne-Maree flew around Las Vegas at night with her trusty instructor Jenna, presenting “What’s on this weekend” while circling at 3,000 feet over the city lights. She then went on to fly some circuits at McCarran International Airport (KLAS) to wind up her time in the cockpit, stating afterwards that she absolutely loved her experience.
Update: The video of Anne-Maree’s flight experience has been made available on the 9am with David & Kim site.
