      I only have a rough idea how to! So I suppose a good place to start would be the CAA

      Our company builds aircraft simulators for the actual trainers (our customers). So it is up to the trainers to determine who gets qualified and who doesn’t. I’d want to try and do a loop-the-loop in a big Airbus, but I guess that’d mean I’d fail to qualify…. 🙂

      I agree with @Andy on the CAA being a good place to start. I jsut want to add that a good way to start learning about flying is to look at gliding lesson. This is much more affordable that flying a motor plane and give a good first experience of flying.
