Careful Delivery Solutions from Sussex Transport

Sometimes the transport load requires that little bit extra … Sussex Transport never take risks and when our HIAB made a dedicated delivery of specialist mirrors for a flight simulator to Southampton, the unusually wide load required an escort service to ensure the delivery was made safely, causing minimum disruption to other road users.

Flight simulators these days are an essential part of pilot training and are highly technical in design. These designs have evolved from one of the earliest simulators used by pilots prior to World War 1 when a training rig was developed in 1909 to help the pilot operate the control wheels before the aircraft was flown. This consisted of a seat mounted in a half-barrel and the two wheels. The whole unit was pivoted so that assistants outside could pitch and roll the device in accordance with the pilot’s use of the wheels, using long wooden rods attached to the barrel structure.
