Boeing BBJ

A brand new BBJ (Boeing Business Jet), photographed at the Williams Gateway Airport (Phoenix, Arizona) in the summer of 2001. The huge winglets design, a gimmick at first to create a recognisable and unique aircraft, turned out to be a better fuel saver than expected. After finishing the BBJ, they decided to offer the winglets as an option on the new generation 737 aircraft.

B737-200 Full Flight Simulator

Cockpit of the 737-200 flightsim (same as the one shown below, currently for sale). We have flown 32 hours in total with this simulator, 20 for the multi-crew training, 12 for an instrument rating renewal. Half of these hours as first-officer in the right seat, the other half as captain. It's a joy to fly and an excellent motivator. When flying this sim you realize you're making a dream come true!
