1996

Spring Meeting:   1st-2nd March 1996, Heathrow

President Dr Mike Bagshaw, head of British Airways Health Services, organized a splendid day of aero-medical information and fun in the 747-400 simulators, devices which are used for zero-time training – they are so realistic that pilots graduate from them straight to revenue flights.  Another simulator tried out by members is used for training cabin crew: a full-size fuselage mock-up which suddenly and without warning filled with smoke!  There’s more to simulation than thrashing around imaginary circuits.

Autumn Meeting:  30th August – 1st September 1996, Norwich
