Simulator selection without worries
Ivo BartoňDirector of Flight Safety ČSA, a.s.
As a captain with 15,000 flight hours on an Airbus A320 and a Boeing 737, I can confirm that both simulators are already very close to reality and meet quality standards even for flight crew training thanks to the functionality of the individual systems and authentic control forces.

About the simulator
is the best-selling airliner today. It is the first civil transport aircraft that began to use side-sticks instead of the traditional "rams" for control. A huge advantage of Airbus over Boeing is fly-by-wire flight control system technology. Thanks to the many flight computers, it reduces the demands on piloting itself, and therefore we recommend the simulator for the first introduction to commercial flying. In addition, the A320 flight simulator provides such a realistic experience that even professional pilots use it for training.
is a classic aircraft with traditional rams. Driving it requires attention, as there are no flight computers between you and the controls of the aircraft like in the Airbus. Piloting is thus a real challenge for aviation fans. The fidelity of the simulator with the real Boeing 737NG is phenomenal. It is used for pilot training, but also for the public. If you land with him too, you can be really proud of yourself. The quality of the trainer is also proven by the ongoing certification by the Civil Aviation Authority.
F-16 Fighting Falcon
is a multi-role fighter aircraft, fighter for short. Like the Airbus A320, it has a fly-by-wire control system with joystick control. It is an ideal gift for men, as we are the only ones in the Czech Republic to offer the opportunity to pilot the machine accompanied by a real pilot and instructor from the Czech Army, Tomáš Merta. He flies the Jas-39 Gripen and teaches military pilots in training to fly. At the same time, he helped us with the development of the simulator so that your experience corresponds as closely as possible to reality.
is a small sports airplane for 4 people with classic steering using rams like the Boeing 737. However, unlike it, it is used as a tool for basic and advanced pilot training or flights up to 1600 km away. A big advantage of the Cessna compared to large transport aircraft is the smaller number of control elements and significantly lower speed. Due to the lower speed, you have more reaction time to correct the pilot maneuver, which is why this moving simulator is ideal for the first introduction to flying.
Virtual reality on a flight simulator
We present to you a unique novelty that we have prepared for you during the forced break with COVID-19. Experience piloting the iconic planes on a moving simulator with the new VR set released in April 2020. Its resolution is more than 4K, a 260% increase compared to the HTC Vive. Piloting an English Spitfire, a Russian Mig-15 or an American F/A-18C Hornet is so realistic that it literally takes your breath away.
Virtual reality on a car simulator
Would you be tempted to drive legendary cars such as Ferrari 250 GTO, 330 P4, Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, Lamborghini Miura or Aventador? How about the Ford GT40, McLaren P1, Mercedes SLS AMG or Shelby 427 and many others? Try it completely differently on a moving simulator with the new virtual reality HP Reverb from April 2020, which has a 260% higher resolution compared to the HTC Vive. With this novelty, you will feel like you are sitting in a real car instead of a simulator.
Formula 1 simulator
provides a much more fun driving experience with a car. These are two cockpits of professional car simulators. Like the best simulators for F1 pilots, they are not mobile, but thanks to the 6 meter wide semi-circular 180° projection, they give the impression of movement much better compared to conventional simulators, which only have monitors and a limited range of motion and therefore very small forces compared to the real ones acting on the pilot in real Formula 1.
Individual experience for one to three people (you + your companion) with an instructor. A simplified commander gangway simulator for three people in roles (captain at periscope, helmsman at steering and weapons officer at firing torpedoes). Possibility of water seepage from three water circuits (raincoats available) or fire simulation with a smoke generator. You will cooperate with each other and sink both merchant and warships.
What you get from us
Our experienced pilots and instructors will be at your disposal, who will take care of the comfort of you and your up to 3 guests, who you can bring with you as spectators. So that the memory of your extraordinary experience does not fade, you can take away a recording of your flight filmed by a professional camera, including photos and a certificate signed by a real pilot. After the experience, you will take an interactive tour of all simulators and try Flight Simulator 2020, which is very popular among our visitors.
How does it go?
The experience begins with sitting in a prepared cockpit with an instructor. During the main experience, your audience can, upon request, try out Flight Simulator 2020 for 15 minutes as a bonus flight. This is not a professional simulator, but a regular game with beautiful details with visuals on a 55" 4K screen and a basic Thrustmaster flight controller in the form of self-service control. After the experience, we will guide you through our center and show you step by step all of our professional simulators. If they are in operation, you can look inside through the window provided for this. For experiences on the Formula 1 and Racing Special simulators, a qualified operator is available to change the settings or fee professional instructor Jan Charouz (on request in advance) at Formula 1.
Can I bring an audience?
YES, with experience vouchers you can have up to three people accompanying you, but only the recipient can pilot. The exception is the submarine experience, where 3 people in different roles and 1 person from the audience are in charge. Last Minute or multi-person courses do not include an accompanying audience. With the exception of courses above the permitted limit, the accompanying spectator can be paid extra according to the capacity on the spot at a price of CZK 190 per person. Taking turns in the cockpit is only allowed to the escort for an additional charge of CZK 490 per person taking turns due to discounted prices for longer experiences for one person and increased wear and tear on the simulators when changing people.
What is the appropriate length of the experience?
The best-selling option is 60 minutes, as it allows you to repeat the landing with civilian aircraft or the air combat with the F16 fighter. Racing simulators will offer two tracks. However, choose according to your options, because it is still possible to extend the experience when booking with an additional price.
Do I need any previous experience?
Absolutely not, our instructor or operator will explain everything needed to master the given phase of the simulation. For more complex simulators such as the Boeing 737NG, Airbus A320, F16 Fighting Falcon, Cessna 182RG and the U-BOAT submarine, a qualified instructor is available throughout your experience.
Can I exchange the voucher for another one?
Certainly yes, the best way is to gift a universal experience and let the recipient choose their preferred simulator. However, even if you choose any experience, you can always exchange it for another one with a possible surcharge when booking in our online system.
What about the validity of the voucher, the reservation date and the cancellation of the experience?
The voucher is valid for 6 - 12 months and can also be extended. The recipient chooses the date during the validity period in the online reservation system. It is possible to cancel the date free of charge no later than 72 hours before the start of the experience, otherwise we charge 50% of the price for the new date.
Will I be piloting alone or with an instructor?
Yes, as far as you can manage yourself! However, we will not leave you alone, but our instructor will help you with everything you need to master the experience.
Will I share my experience with someone else?
All experiences are individual and reserved only for the recipient and their entourage. No one will disturb you in the cockpit with our instructor.
Are there any minimum age and height requirements for the applicant?
Yes, the recommended age for children is from 12 years old with a minimum height of 150 cm and adults with a weight of up to 120 kg.
Is the trainer fully moving "full-motion-simulator"?
YES, we have three moving simulators. The Cessna 182RG includes a 3DOF movable base (3 degrees of freedom of movement ie lift, pitch, roll) The racing special has a 4DOF movable base (4 degrees of freedom of movement ie lift, pitch, pitch and rotation). Boeing 737NG, Airbus A320, F16 Fighting Falcon, Formula 1 and U-BOAT is a so-called "fixed-based-simulator" without hydraulics. Unfortunately, the high costs for the so-called the full flight motion transporter airplane simulator is designed for training flight crews and is significantly more expensive. Professional fighter simulators are not made with a moving base at all because of the high G. On the other hand, our 180-degree wide-angle view composed of three full HD projectors for Boeing 737NG, Airbus A320, F16 Fighting Falcon and Formula 1 simulators will sufficiently replace this feeling. The brain is easily fooled by the impression of movement when the image is large.
Už jako malý kluk se zajímal o letadla a obdivuje tyto stroje dodnes. Dříve stačilo lepení modelů a pozorování letadel nad hlavou. Od roku 2003 se sny být skutečným pilotem začaly rýsovat více jasněji a získal kvalifikaci obchodního pilota s doložkou IR/MEP, ATPL(A) frozen. V roce 2009 úspěšně absolvoval výběrové řízení na pozici dopravního pilota u společnosti ČSA. V současnosti se zabývá obchodními lety pro soukromou společnost, která hodlá využívat obchodní leteckou dopravu s využitím turbovrtulových letadel pro transport speciálních lékových forem.
Letectví se aktivně věnuje od svých 17 let. Je absolventka Vysoké školy Báňské oboru letecké dopravy a nyní aktivně létá od roku 2018 na letadle Boeing 737 u společnosti Go2Sky. Od roku 2020 vyučuje předměty ATPL na dopravní fakultě ČVUT.
Létat začal v 17 letech v aeroklubu na kluzácích. Pokračoval výcvikem soukromého pilota. V roce 2020 úspěšně absolvoval zkoušky z teorie dopravního pilota ATPL(a). V roce 2021 dokončil praktický výcvik a je držitelem licence obchodního pilota-CPL/MEP/IR. Volný čas nejraději tráví v aeroklubu létáním na všem, co má křídla.
Začal létat od roku 2013 na malých sportovních letounech k získání první kvalifikace PPL. Dále pak pokračoval v létání a zvyšování pilotních kvalifikací společně se studiem ATPL k cílené metě stát se profesionálním dopravním pilotem. Od roku 2018 létá jako první důstojník u společnosti Smartwings na Boeingu 737NG a 737 MAX8.
