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
