1. KLM Cockpit Tales: Part 1 – Autopilot in action
This video explains how the auto pilot works. Also it gives a very good overview of a tasks during take-off and landing that the pilots have to complete.
Sound and subtitles are in English.
2. KLM Cockpit Tales: Part 2 – Crossing the Atlantic
This short movie is about crossing the Atlantic ocean.
The greater part of this journey is not covered by radar surveillance. Therefore specific procedures have to be adhered to. For example requesting a specific “street” as well as a 10 minute distance between each plane.
A normal passenger might find this video a bit boring. But airline enthusiasts will enjoy it and it is a must-see.
Once again sound and subtitles are in English.
3. KLM Cockpit Tales: Part 3 – Big plane, short runway
A classic movie about approach and landing in Saint Martin, a Caribbean island with a very unusual airport.
Airplanes literary are approaching the tarmac above the people on the beach. Seems to be a bit crazy but it is well worth the view.
