  • Is it free ?

    No credit card needed for the instructors !
    After discussing with the first active instructors, we decided to apply the operating fees* to the student. So each time they book a lesson, a part of the money is collected before you receive it.In the future another possibility is a fixed monthly membership instead of a commission.

  • How do I share my screen and mouse with the student ?

    The best is to use a shared cockpit feature, but until then :Download Zoom for desktop. It's free & easy to use.
    Zoom is better than Skype for our activity, you can :-Send/receive scheduled meeting invites.-Share your screen & mouse, so you can can show some things directly into your cockpit !-No time limit with the free version (as long as you are just two).
    This video about ZOOM shared screen is a good explainer : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1q_g4IyO2Y

  • Is a basic home simulator ok to train efficiently ? 

    The brain need to memorise the basics, where to look when, in which direction move the control, (but not necesseraly the intensity), You train your brain to adapt, and a good pilot is also one who can change of aircaft and still after 1 hour of adapatation fly a perfect approach. A good IFR pilot must also learn to NOT thrust its "seat of the pants" feeling, its actually an agreable sensation in VMC, but notice this feeling can be very dangereous in IMC, as you will learn there is a lot of killing sensorial illusion. To counter that, you must thrust your instrument. So its actually a good thing to begin the training on a fixed simulator.
    Flying in the sim can at some point become harder than realworld ! So when going real, you think its a piece of cake..

“ I was curious about the shared screen concept, but finally flying remotely with Thomas my remote flight instructor was a great experience.
He showed me nice technics to fly the perfect raw data approach with an engine failure so now i have a lot bigger mental workload capacity and
i went very confident to my sim assessment which i succeeded !!!
A big thank you Thomas.”

“I've always wondered why home flight simulation was not used more for training, but since Truewings created the perfect tool for instructors to deliver high quality training despite the distance, i'm confident that in the near future this will be the number one step before starting any real training. ”
