Mayor of Trafford tries his hand at being a pilot
8:00am Saturday 21st September 2013 in News
THE Mayor of Trafford, Cllr Dylan Butt, tried his hand at being a pilot at the recently opened Ringway Flight Simulation (RFS).
Having been shown some of the simulator's features, the mayor took to the skies at the controls of a Boeing 737 passenger jet and after a short flight around the Trafford area, he successfully landed on the runway at Manchester Airport and declared himself to be highly impressed with the whole experience.
Members of the public can now hire RFS's aircraft simulator, which has been built inside the fuselage of a real aircraft with five high definition screens providing 120 degrees of wrap-around vision.
The company offers formal pilot training, fun experience-flights, corporate team-building sessions, promotional events and fear of flying courses.
The RFS centre is located just off the Handforth by-pass near Cheadle Hulme, for more information visit ringwayflightsim.co.uk.
