The A320 Simulator Proficiency Test

This week on Across The Pond from the Airplane Geeks we talk to Steve an A320 Pilot who recently successfully passed his 6 monthly Simulator Proficiency Check. Following Steve on Twitter recently we monitored his progress through the various elements of the test and how he was handling the challenges thrown at him.

We also had amusing Twitter updates on his journey both to and from the test location! So follow @thermalhound for an interesting view on a pilot's life.

We find out what the proficiency tests are all about, challenges he was faced with during the test and how he coped.

I also took the opportunity to ask Steve about British Airways recent decision to start supporting pilot training, an issue close to his heart as he fully funded his own flight training.
