Practice creates masters

Be part of an A380 simulator training session in Toulouse, France. The training is carried out by Supervisor CPT Wolfgang Absmeier, who’s a test pilot and trainer himself. In this video, the pilots Jürgen Raps and Uli Hohl – in a protected environment – simulate the bird strike emergency, which means that a bird has crashed into one of the engines causing its immediate failure. Flight simulators artificially re-create aircraft flight and the environment in which it flies, not only for pilot training, but also for design studies and various other purposes. The production company,, captures the fascination of flight from a pilot’s point of view – in unprecedented quality. The groundbreaking HD recording technique comprising ten HD cameras and eight microphones guarantees a true-to-life experience from the plane’s control center.
