Worldflight 2016 at Flightdeck Experience for Macmillan Cancer Support


Some of you may have noticed that I am an aviation enthusiast and I am very enthusiastic/geeky about flying, and I know a few others on here enjoy what happens in the cockpit as well as just being sat in the back enjoying the champagne.

Over the last two years I have been going fairly regularly to a fixed base 737-800 simulator near Rochdale. The simulator is this one Flightdeck Experience. As well as the cockpit the guy who owns it has built a cabin as well with 12 seats. You can see photos on the website. You actually get a simulated view from the windows as well. It makes it good for group outings and you can sit in the cabin for the time you are not flying in the cockpit. We organised an outing to the simulator as part of the Leeds Do in April 2015.

I have also organised for three years running an FT trip to the BA 747 simulators at Heathrow with the details of the recent one here.

So starting at 2300 UTC on this Saturday 5 November myself and around a dozen other enthusiast sim pilots will be taking part in Worldflight. This is a virtual round the world flight starting in Sydney Australia and flying around the world to end back in Sydney one week later.

Some more information can be found at http://worldflight.com.au/ and https://facebook.com/WorldFlight

The route is:

Team Flex based here at Flightdeck Experience in Lancashire UK is taking part in a realtime virtual flight around the world along with teams from all across the globe all raising money for our chosen charities. We will be flying our fully functional fixed based 737-800 simulator for the 45 flights to circle the world. It will all be streamed in twitch and a link will be added below should you wish to watch. The event is organised with the full help of VATSIM so we should have virtual ATC through all the flights as well.

My own flights are going to be:

We are raising money for the charity Macmillan Cancer Support https://macmillan.org.uk/ a charity which exists to improve the lives of people affected by cancer, they are a fantastic charity and provide so much advice and support. If you can please donate something - it would be very much appreciated.

So come watch on twitch, support us, and donate if you want to as well.
