We have targeted training profiles for all the major European airlines
Prepare for your airline simulator assessment with confidence.
Our professional, one-to-one simulator assessment preparation sessions are designed to give you the best possible chance of passing the simulator check and getting the job. We are here to help you and give you all the support you need to prepare. Our Airline Assessment Preparation Sessions have been created to be as close to your real assessment experience as possible.
Your session will be conducted, where possible, using a genuine assessment profile specific to your future airline. Our profiles are created based on our recruitment experience, backed up by recent feedback from pilots who have been through the process themselves. If you’re looking for more generic preparation, we can offer introductions to the aircraft’s handling characteristics, systems operation and operational procedures. If you’re new to the aircraft type, we’d recommend you couple one of these sessions with your airline specific assessment profile to ensure you’ll feel comfortable and prepared when entering the sim for your sim check.

Procedural Flat Panel Training
a320 Flat Panel Trainer
The Flat Panel Trainer (FPT) is a reconfigurable crew training device designed to optimize training time and improve the learning process for pilots and maintenance personnel. Theory, practice, technical details, operational issues and human factors are brought together in a realistic environment.
Training with the FPT is most effective when used for familiarization, systems, and procedures training prior to entering the full flight simulator. Training organizations can schedule numerous hours in a FPT for the cost of just one hour in a full flight simulator. Most instructors prefer the FPT learning environment as opposed to a simulator when it comes to teaching Crew Concepts, FMC Skills, Normal Flight Procedures and System Abnormalities.
The ability to initiate the FPT to a pre-defined snapshot within seconds eliminates wasteful set-up or repositioning time. A user-friendly Instructor Operating System (IOS) allows the instructor to focus on his most important task – observing the student’s performance.
- Incorporate into simulator briefing sessions to rehearse key maneuvers
- Increase the amount of FPT time in order to decrease simulator time (simulator only used for training motion-based maneuvers and validating maneuvers required by regulation)

I needed some assistance in preparation for an interview assessment. The guys at V1Aviation were really helpful in both arranging the simulator session at such short notice and also with practical advice in how best to prepare. I found the simulator session itself very useful to gain some hands on experience of the type and my instructor James was really helpful too. My overall experience was excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend V1 Aviation to anyone.
V1Aviation managed to fit me into the sim for an airline specific assessment preparation session, at very short notice. The simulator was state of the art – perfect – as was the instruction. I benefited from being able to practice the sim profiles for the airline I was applying for. They even found me a PM at short notice! Customer satisfaction is clearly their main priority. They were as excited as me when I got the call to say that I’d passed the assessment!
I actually thought my ability in the practice sim was pretty bad but actually when I did the sim for the assessment I can honestly say it went so smoothly and the assessor was very complementary. But honestly if I didn’t come to your sim to get the mistakes out of the way I think it could have been a different story! I’ve passed on your details to a colleague at Ryanair who is interested in using an A320 sim for an Iberia assessment.
