More Simulator Demonstrators to be Trained John McKenzie reports: Seven intrepid souls have put themselves forward for simulator demonstrator training, to start later this month. As a consequence, the simulator will be seeing a lot of use at weekends, for a few weeks. Ten members already have the rating, which allows them to demonstrate flying in the simulator to our visitors. Demonstrators have an enjoyable opportunity to show off the simulator but the session is intended to be a thorough introduction for an Introductory Flight.
