Sign in: Staff/Students
Students from our Flight Simulation Group will be attempting to fly around the UK on Tuesday, 27 February in aide of the North West Air Ambulance Charity.
The flight will take place in our flight simulator, which is based in the Harrison Hughes building on campus. Students and staff are invited to watch the event, which kicks off at 10am and is expected to take around 30 hours to complete.
A total of 50 students are set to take part in the simulation. Each leg will be flown by a student pilot and a co-pilot team. The simulated flight will be conducted in line with real aviation regulations and students have been learning the techniques used by pilots – such as flight planning and navigation – in preparation for the challenge.
Live weather data will be fed into the simulator, which means our students will also have to take these changing conditions into account when planning and executing their flights. Other students will be performing additional roles, such as air traffic control and flight dispatch.
If you would like to support our students and visit the lab during the flight simulation, please use the details below. You will also be able to experience the simulator in exchange for a charity donation. Donations to the North West Air Ambulance charity are also welcome.
If you would like to find out more information about the charity challenge, please contact Roy Coates.
What: Flight simulation charity fundraiser
Where: School of Engineering Pilot Studies Lab, Harrison Hughes building (Building 237), opposite Tesco on Brownlow Hill
When: 10am – 4pm, Tuesday, 27 February
