Kuwait Flight Simulation Center has shared with me this nice 9 minutes video for Kuwait Airways flights, it shows how the pilot are controlling the plane, the landing and take off, the cockpit view, the on-board services, safety, maintenance, and more. I always admired Kuwait Airways and it really was one of the finest airlines worldwide in the 70′s and 80′s but since then its going down for reasons I can’t yet understand.
Will the privatization bring back the heydays? I overheard a rumor that Kuwait Airways will buy new 12 planes, we do need new planes.
Note: This video is from taken a DVD that can be found at Kuwait Flight Simulation Center.

Ever wondered how it feels inside the real cockpit for Kuwait Airways flights? I saw this DVD movie for Kuwait Airways flights from the captain’s perspective, the movie includes a flight to London, Geneva, Beirut, and Jeddah for Boeing 777-200 and Airbus 340-300 planes.
Kuwait Airways was one of the best and safest airlines in the region. The double disc movie is available at Kuwait Flight Simulation Center for 14 K.D.

We had an enjoyable visit to Kuwait Flight Simulation Center. I love aviation and I remember I wanted to be a pilot and this place made me really feel like one.
The center simply gets you the best flight simulation experience ! There are many planes to fly such as Boeing 737, Boeing 747, Boeing 777, Airbus Pro 320, Airbus 321, Airbus 330 among others.
There’s also the F-16, F-18, and a Helicopter and you can synchronize them to go on missions and dog-fights, interesting !
The center is designed to look like an airport with a comm. tower, nice ! I spoke with the manager Eng. Abdulmalik Al Mobaiedh about the center and asked if they offer real training:
“We offer realistic training and prepare you for the Private Pilot Licence (PPL). Our center is approved by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA)” he said.
I noticed they give classes on aviation. I got inside the Airbus Pro 320 and it felt so realistic from the engine sounds to weather conditions, turbulence and engine failures too.
They also have a hobby-craft shop, Lounge Cafe, and a Pilot shop selling aviation hardware and software. I asked how much this cost and I was told that simulators booked at one hour intervals range from 10 to 35 K.D/hr

I have always wanted to become a pilot, even when teacher in primary school used to ask everyone about their dream job, my answer was “Pilot”, though things went differently as I grew and I became engineer.
Though the idea was always there, so I started playing Microsoft Flight Simulator game, it was great but the something was still missing, sitting at the real pilot seat with all those buttons, switches, screens and alerts would be amazing.
I was so happy to know that a real Flight Simulator was launched at 360 Mall at Level 3, where you can be the pilot of a BOEING 737 and experience the real feeling of being inside the cockpit.
The project was launched by TAMDEEN Entertainment, I had a chit chat with the Chairman & CEO’s Consultant Eng. Wa’el A. Al-Hamlan, who explained to me that this is one of the first real flight simulator in the region that is available for the public.
Trainees will be able to take off, land, choose from 24,000 international airports, experience the climates and a lot more. The good news that the trainers will get real flying hours, so when they reach certain number they can get real license !
There will be free flight simulator CD’s at “Let’s Burger” restaurant soon.
