Date & Time

Saturday, June 26 10:00 – 14:00

What We Will See

We have been invited to visit Southwest Airlines Training and Operations Center. This tour is open to everyone.

Cadets, come fly a Boeing 737 Simulator and find out how Southwest Airlines trains its pilots for every conceivable situation.

The plan is to focus on flying the devices and explain the phases of training.

We will tour the new facility and learn about the purpose of the design and structure.

In addition, we will tour the maintenance areas and Engineering stations. Objective: to better understand the responsibilities of maintaining devices to the highest aircraft fidelity standards.

We will be splitting into groups of 4 or 5. Hopefully we can secure 3 or 4 simulators to assure everyone experiences takeoffs, landings, extreme weather, and various malfunctions.
