Flight simulator

Part of my beeeg job is to look after training for our company.  Together with Duke Corporate Education, we've created a special year long training program to upskill our Professional Services Consultants.
As part of the training program, we arranged training in the flight simulator at OR Tambo International Airport.  The learning was about making decisions under pressure in unfamiliar circumstances.  This is the real flight simulator which is used to train pilots for Comair.  Pilots spend hundreds of hours in the simulator, and the first time that they get into an actual aircraft, there are passengers in the back - eeeks!

The launch event

With our rockstar team from Duke -  Heidi, Lindy, Stuart (Director) and Leah, our awesome Program Manager

This is what they do to cheeky passengers - haha! 

The briefing took place in the aircraft, and then we exited by jumping out down the emergency shute

It was a crazy fun day, with a very dishy pilot (Mark) doing the training in the flight simulator...just saying!

Sometimes my job is fun, but mostly, it's just a ton of very hard work.  Today was mega fun!
