When we first heard that Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson was offering fan club members the chance to learn how to fly through a full motion 737 flight simulator, we thought “damn, that’s pretty awesome!” And while all of the slots in December were booked pretty fast, video of a Bruce Air Flight 666 training session has been posted online.
The video was actually shot inside the simulator while the cameraman’s son was getting the flight lesson from Dickinson earlier this week. Along with some cheesy airline music, the clip shows the Maiden singer teaching how to take off and land Ed Force One. You can watch the highlights of the training session above.
In addition to footage taken in the simulator, another trainee filmed a short clip of Bruce Dickinson receiving a pair of rubber boots with the Bruce Air Flight 666 logo on it during one of the sessions. Now Dickinson can die with his new rubber boots on.You can check out that fan filmed clip, as well as another video of Dickinson in the simulator’s cockpit during another training session, after the jump.
