Flight simulator hauled to Poland
Van der Vlist has recently handled the transport and installation of a flight simulator in Poland. The sim will be used to keep up with the training and recertification of pilots. By simulating certain kinds of experiences, pilots can be ready for them when they happen in real life.
Transport consisted of several out-of-gauge pieces. A bigger piece, measuring approximately six and a half meters in length, four and a half meters in width and almost four meters in height. This piece weighed around ten tons. Additionally, some smaller pieces were transported.
Due to roadworks, Van der Vlist conducted additional route surveys to ensure the most efficient and optimal course of direction. In order to reach the destination, the trucks had to leave the highway in Poland and follow the national road for about 100 kilometres. With such dimensions, that is a challenge of course. After arriving in Poland, Van der Vlist’s specialized rigging team unloaded the simulator, placed it onto the foundation and mounted all parts.
