The simulator is in a crew hut that is on the ground floor with wheelchair access. However, to fly, the pilot needs to be able to climb into the cockpit, sit unaided, operate the controls, and be able to climb out. Anyone with a lower body circumference of over 120cm/48 inches will find this difficult. The instructor has the right to refuse cockpit entry if he thinks the prospective pilot will not be able to enter or exit the cockpit safely.

Comfortable clothing is fine but everyone in the simulator must wear a face covering at all times and sanitise their hands before taking their flight.
