A Pilot’s Dream Gift — Time In Mustang Simulator


If there’s a pilot on your holiday shopping list who’s impossible to buy for, here’s a gift that should put a spark in any pilot’s eye — an hour in a full-motion Citation Mustang jet flight simulator. FlightSafety International is offering a special gift package for anyone with an interest, pilot or not, the Wichita Eagle reported this week. The Cessna Learning Center in Wichita, Kan., will provide a brief overview of the jet plus an hour at the simulator controls, with an instructor, for $400. Eagle reporter Molly McMillin tried it out, and said “You really feel like you’re doing the flying.” Time slots can be booked between Dec. 29 and Jan. 2, a time frame, we suspect, when regular paying customers are scarce. For information, call Catherine Kreitler at (316) 220-3100.
