LPC/OPC Refresher


Prepare for your six-monthly recurrent check with a flexible, tailor-made preparation session in an Airbus or Boeing flight simulator at Heathrow, Gatwick, Southampton or Palma de Mallorca.

The importance of preparation.

As a pilot, you’ll understand the importance of preparation throughout your flying career. You obviously can’t practice non-normal & emergency scenarios during line flights, or during the LPC/OPC or ATQP itself. Hiring a full-motion simulator is the ideal opportunity for you to practice procedures and increase your confidence before your sim check.

Expert guidance.

Our team of highly experienced instructors will first discuss with you the areas that you feel might need some improvement. Having undergone numerous recurrent simulator checks themselves, they can tailor a session exactly to your requirements.

Unrivalled simulator access.

We work with all the major simulator centres, operating over forty Airbus & Boeing simulators, thereby giving you access to the largest full-flight simulator fleet in Europe. That means we can offer you the widest choice of locations, aircraft types, dates and times – giving you ultimate flexibility.

Lots of dates to choose from.

We run over 200 simulator sessions each month, and you may find a suitable date in our online schedules. However, we appreciate that you may need to book a specific date, or book at short notice. That’s no problem, as we can book an extra date specially for you. Just contact us to check simulator availability.

Cost and booking.

An LPC/OPC Refresher session typically includes:

  • Pre-flight briefing.
  • Simulator session of one to four hours.
  • De-briefing.
  • Instructor.
LPC/OPC Refresher sessions cost from £380 plus VAT per hour, including instruction. Please see our Price List for more information. We understand that you may need to book a session at very short notice. Please contact us and we will arrange a time and date to suit you.


I would recommend it to any pilot who feels they need a confidence boost prior to a check.


Practice without pressure.

Nerves are the most common reason why pilots make mistakes in the simulator. An LPC/OPC Refresher session is the perfect opportunity to practice and improve your skills, build your confidence and enhance your chance of gaining a higher grade. Remember, it’s our job to assist you, not test you. Go into your simulator check feeling relaxed, confident and fully-prepared.


All LPC/OPC Refresher sessions are completely confidential.

A choice of locations.

We offer LPC/OPC Refresher sessions at London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Southampton and Palma de Mallorca - using a wide range of Airbus & Boeing full flight simulators. For more information please see the Locations & Simulators page.

A wide choice of aircraft types.

Practice on the same type of simulator that your LPC/OPC will be conducted on. Don’t settle for an alternative type or a generic device; maximise you chances of success by using the right simulator in the correct configuration. For more information, please see the Locations & Simulators page.

Simulator practice makes perfect.
