Jenson Button, former Formula One world champion, has spent the last week piloting a British Airways A380 flight simulator at London’s Heathrow Airport.
The British driver who recently announced his retirement from the track spent 90 minutes perfecting take-off, cruise, and landing of the world’s largest commercial aircraft.
“It was so cool! I’ve flown all over the world but this is the first time I’ve experienced what it’s like to be at the controls and it was a pretty incredible feeling,” said Jenson.
“It’s like you’re in a real aircraft and after a while, you forget it isn’t the real thing.
“I think I did pretty well for a first-timer, though if there had been passengers in the back we might have had a few complaints about my first landing. Let’s just say it was a bit bumpy.”
