Airline Captain For A Day

Captain Rod MacLennan has made the skies his part-time home ever since his first solo flight in 1960. Over his decades-long career, he has amassed more than 20,000 hours of flight time, working as a flight instructor, Eastern Airlines pilot, and Polar Air Cargo captain. Wanting to give the public a taste of what it means to fly a commercial airliner, he opened Airline Captain For A Day in 2009, acquiring a range of simulators that run from easily-handled Boeing 737-200 to the massive heft of a 757-200. With digital displays and real gauges, trainee pilots take off and land their charges while the simulator pod shifts and bucks, mimicking the feelings of being in a real plane or on the shoulders of a real T. rex.
