the door is almost always open when they are boarding sň you could sneek a peek if you are fast.

When you land make sure you're one of the last to get off and just ask the crew. 9/10 times the Capt/FO will let you in

Once landed you should be ok for a flight deck visit photos etc, the crew do not have time to chat due to quick turn arounds but yes you can have a quick glimpse in,this is dependant on crew at the time and circumstances on that day but generally you should be ok.

tip tell them you are doing a school project on flight lol... get plenty of photos with the crew too heheeeeeeee.

Certainly worth asking - people often pop in and see us!

Are you learning to fly?

fsx top sim i have flew the same for a couple of years, interesting and in some circumstances it can be very realistic i.e vatsim (sids and stars and realistic atc)
I've learnt alot from this sim and i know alot of budding pilots use the same as a training aid, the navigational waypoint set up can be just like the real world.. plenty addons out there to increase realism, i do recommend fs commander unless you fly the pmdg with the fmc. happy flying

most of the EMA crews are really friendly so i would think you should be fine! I'm not based there so it certainly won't be me. If you're going down to FUE they'll probably be glad to have someone else to talk to. Let us know how you get on...

got back today. i did ask in flight going to and coming back, and they said i couldnt go in due to security reasons but i did get a good sneak peak in on takeoff and landing Smile

if anywants i can sen you a link for takeoff and landing videos. but will not all be uploaded until 2moro.

flight was quite good, had a hard landing in fuertuventura Very Happy
but got charged 20 euro for going 1kg over coming back. also fuertuventura was so slow checking in we had 20minutes to grab a sandwich, drink n get on the plane. but managed to get good seats Smile

shame they wouldn't let you in... I did a Canaries trip this week and I'd have been quite happy to have someone else to chat to!!!

FUE can be quite wierd place to land depending on the wind - the threshold there on the northerly runway is also massively displaced (by 1000m) so it looks really odd on the approach...

Anyway, glad you had fun

i did a little flight in a c172 on fsx before i went, with real world weather set up and noticed it was really windy. and when i landed at fue i noticed it was windy then and it was quite a fast landing.

Yeah - can often have a tailwind on the approach down there until just before touchdown then a headwind on the runway...

Like the videos
