Bringing Boeing Home with SilkAir

The pilot’s seat is open onboard SilkAir’s first Boeing 737-800. Well, at least the virtual one. SilkAir is calling out to all passionate fans and aviation lovers to put on the pilot’s cap and play a part in bringing its newest aircraft back home. Hosted in celebration of SilkAir’s 25th Anniversary, ‘Bringing Boeing Home with SilkAir’ is Asia’s first 25-hour flight simulator event that commemorates the Airline taking delivery of the first aircraft in its new fleet of 54 Boeing 737s in early February 2014.
To be held at Flight Experience at the Singapore Flyer, the event offers up to 150 participants the unique experience of virtually flying the Boeing 737-800 from the Renton factory in Seattle to Singapore’s Changi Airport, right from the captain’s seat. Emulating the aircraft’s actual flight path, the 25-hour simulation will involve stop-overs at three locations including Honolulu, Majuro and Guam, with participants working in pairs to take on the piloting of an assigned portion of the route.
Participants will receive a certificate to commemorate this event, enter a lucky draw for tickets to an exciting SilkAir destination and receive special limited edition memorabilia from SilkAir. A Landing Party for both participants and members of the public will also be hosted, with attendees being treated to a series of fun-filled activities.
For an opportunity to be selected as one of the 150 participants of ‘Bringing Boeing Home with SilkAir’, simply visit SilkAir Facebook page and share why you want to be part of this historic delivery event. Only one entry per person will be considered and submissions close on 26 January 2014, 2359hrs. Selected participants will be notified on the first week of February via phone/email.
