Professional sim

So I’m on duty today, sitting around the office with a few other pilots. When we are all together, we often “hangar fly” our last trips…or get the gouge on someplace, or talk about quirks with the planes. Today we were talking about an approach that one of the crews flew where the FMS did something that they weren’t expecting (one of those typical “what is it doing” moments). We have a cool little desktop app that emulates our FMS (Universal FMS Trainer) which allowed us to load up the approach and fly it and recreate the situation. No “out the window” graphics, but more important is the fidelity and accuracy of how the FMS works, allowing us to accurately see what we either will see or would have seen. (HDG bug should be centered in this screen cap…oops…)



Thats pretty dang cool!
