Go behind the scenes on a United Flight Simulator |


"This was an AMAZING event. As a loyal United flyer and private pilot I was thrilled to be able to fly a 787 and A320. The training facility is amazing. I believe there are 14 simulators that represent hundreds of millions of dollars United invests to train its pilots. On top of seeing the quality training United pilots and flight crews receive (and make no mistake, United is an industry leader in this regard), we were able to experience what it's like to sit in the pilot's seat. For me, the highlight was sticking an instrument landing into SFO in near minimum visibility. Thrilling to say the least. I hope I get the chance to do it again. Special thanks to Captain's Eric and Steven for sharing the experience and to Eileen who was the most gracious host to us."
