    What It Takes To Become A Pilot — inside United's Simulator
    CNBC
    Published on Nov 27, 2018
    CNBC got an inside look at United Airlines Flight Training Center in Denver. At nearly half a million square feet, this facility is one of the largest airline training hubs in the world. All of United's 12,000 pilots come through here for initial training and return every 9 months to stay up to date on flight procedures and safety protocols. The campus has 31 simulators, each costing $15 million to $20 million. And United plans to have a total of 40 in the next 12 to 18 months. Pilots must complete training in the simulators before flying in real planes. United Airlines operated more than 5,300 flights on the Sunday after Thanksgiving alone. Watch what it was like for CNBC's Erin Black to fly a United Airlines Airbus A320 simulator.

    Although the landing was within the limits of CAT III (barely made it lol), departure was kinda illegal :D

    Just got a new laptop capable of running high demand programs. I'm an RC plane enthusiast that has a love for aviation. Where should I look to get my next fix?
