This programme was shot with 4 different cameras so you'll see and hear all key aspects of the flight and aircraft operation from the aircrew's perspective. Briefings and procedures, including departure and arrival are discussed in detail, plus of course the multiple cameras used give you an unparalleled view of both take-off and landing. We also show you the aircraft being loaded with cargo and baggage along with the fuel required for this transatlantic flight.
After departure from Gatwick, you will learn in detail about ETOPS (Extended Twin Range Operations) and the implications of flying a twin engine aircraft over the Atlantic. TCAS (Traffic alert and Collision Avoidance System) is shown and explained.
You will learn just what is required to pilot a glass-cockpit airliner across the Atlantic. Whether you're looking to help your PC flight simulation skills or simply have a passing interest in what goes on in the 'front seats' - this is a truly educational programme for all to enjoy.
