Flight Simulator Training – Part 5

Hydraulic System Failures

In the previous tutorial, we outlined how to write a Lesson Plan to help make flight simulator training more effective with definite goals. After a pilot is hired by an airline or corporation, a period of training begins. The pilot will learn the company Operations Manual, known as OpSpecs, the various aircraft handbooks and be introduced to the training department.

For this training flight, we depart from Runway 26R at Las Vegas Airport (KLAS) in Nevada.

The training department/division is responsible for all classroom (ground school) and simulator instruction. A schedule of classes will be assigned along with the type of aircraft the pilot is to learn. Some airlines may only operate one or two aircraft types, so it is not a mystery which type the pilot will fly. The most prolific aircraft flown today is the Boeing 737, so in this lesson we will discuss the hydraulic system of this aircraft. For the actual flight, use the Lesson Plan format from the previous lesson.
