It’s a pretty well known fact that when Bruce Dickinson isn’t on stage, he loves to fly. We’ve seen him in action as a licensed pilot in Iron Maiden’s Flight 666 documentary, he’s flown many fans personally to Iron Maiden shows through his Bruce Air Flight 666 excursions, he’s the marketing director of aircraft leasing firm Astraeus Airlines, and he even came to the rescue during Hurricane Irene. And now through a state-of-the-art full motion 737 flight simulator, Dickinson is giving fans the chance to actually learn how to fly Ed Force One.
That’s right, the Iron Maiden singer is actually holding training sessions based at London’s Heathrow Airport this December. The one hour sessions can be either one-on-one or split amongst two to three individuals, though members of the Iron Maiden Fan Club will get first access to booking slots. “I can’t wait to sit in the simulator with fans and share the buzz of what it is really like to fly a modern passenger jet such as Flight 666 and all the challenges that entails,” says Dickinson.
