You will join Ruud and Robert in the Flight Operations briefing room at the Martinair building at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport.

There you'll be first given a full briefing about the flight, the route, weather and fuel. We then go out to the aircraft (PH-MCS) for the start of our journey from Amsterdam (EHAM) to Palma de Mallorca (LEPA). Departure is from Amsterdam's Schiphol airport using runway 19L on a Lekko SID, call sign Martinair 341.

Ruud explains in great detail the whole departure as he is actually flying it. Once settled in the cruise at 37,000 feet, Ruud introduces you to the FCP (Flight Control Panel), FMA (Flight Mode Annunciator), FMC (Flight Management Computer), FMS (Flight Management System), Climb Thrust and Pitch, Pilot Selection Mode verses FMS Mode, Nav Mode, PFD (Primary Flight Display), PLI (Pitch Limit Indicator), and FPA (Flight Path Angle).

We then follow Ruud and Robert in the descent and make an approach to Palma de Mallorca using runway 24L. Hear the Air Traffic Control for the flights and follow the checklists as you discover this state of the art aircraft from a very privileged perspective from the flightdeck!

About Captain Ruud Bakker
Captain Ruud Bakker, Martinair's Senior Chief Pilot, was born on August 24, 1954 in Haarlem, The Netherlands. Ruud started his flight training in September 1973 at the Government Aviation School (RLS, Rijksluchtvaart school) in Eelde, The Netherlands, where he flew the C-150, Saab-Safir and C-500. He finished school in May 1976 with a CPL, theoretical ATPL and a C-500 rating. From May 1976 Ruud flew sightseeing trips in a C-172. In September that year he left for Kenya and briefly flew part time for "Sight by Wings", an organisation that transports eye-doctors to places in Kenya, Tanzania, Sudan and the Comores Islands.

In March 1977 Ruud returned to The Netherlands to take up an invitation by Martinair's Director of Flight Operations to start a job as crew-scheduler, with the option of getting a job as a pilot as soon as a vacancy became available. During September 1977 Ruud started as a co-pilot on the DC-9-30 and in February 1979 a co-pilot on the DC-10-30 and progressed in May 1986 to his first captaincy on the A310-200.

From 1987 he became a TRI (instructor), and in 1988 a chief-instructor, from 1990 till the end of 1993 he also became chief pilot. In 1994 Ruud helped prepare Martinair for the introduction of the MD-11, along with his MD-11 training with Swissair which lead him on to a position as chief instructor on the MD-11 Fleet.

In January 1997 he was made chief-pilot MD-11 Fleet and in September 1999 he became Martinair's Senior Chief Pilot. Ruud is married and has two children.

    About Captain David Rowland
    Captain David Rowland is married with two sons and lives in North Oxfordshire. After basic training he joined BA (BOAC) in 1969 and became a Co-Pilot/Navigator on VC10s. In 1976 he joined the Concorde fleet. In 1993 he became Commercial Manager Concorde, responsible to Regional General Manager, Americas for the Concorde business in British Airways, and later combined the operational and commercial management role as General Manager Concorde.

    In total David has over 10,000 flying hours, most of which are supersonic. In 1995 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, and is a Member of the Royal Institute of Navigation. He is a long term member of the Duxford Aviation Society, and in his spare time, enjoys going to the theatre, walking, reading, listening to music, playing golf and tennis (neither very well!).

    Over 1.5 Million Supersonic Passengers
    Concorde was the only supersonic passenger airliner in the world and British Airways was one of only two airlines operating this flagship of the worlds civil aviation fleet. A Over 1.5 million passengers have flown supersonically on board British Airways seven strong Concorde fleet since they entered commercial service on January 21st 1976. Cruising at 1,350mph, twice the speed of sound, a typical transatlantic crossing took less than three and a half hours.

    Concorde flew above all the weather and her passenger cabin was pressurised to a more comfortable level than on subsonic aircraft, reducing flight fatigue still further. Since entering service, British Airways Concordes have operated some 40,000 flights. Concorde's fastest yet transatlantic crossing was on February 7th 1996, when she completed the New York to London flight in 2 hours 52 minutes and 59 seconds, over 40 minutes faster than schedule.

    The small number of dedicated flight crews that flew this superb aircraft were drawn from the best and most experienced that British Airways had to offer and have more supersonic flight time than any of the pilots of the world's Air Forces!

Customer Reviews

Just to say thank you for my DVD.

I really enjoyed watching it and for a couple of hours thought I was right there in the jump seat.

I've now ordered the Virgin B747-400 so look forward to that.

Your advert on the back of "Airliner World" was the prompt!

The quality was superb and liked the clarity of the film work.

Many thanks again!

Derek

As an avid flight simmer the 3 ITVV DVD disks I have so far have been a great help in helping me understand and appreciate how eerily similar 'ordinary' PC software has become compared to actual flight decks and procedures!

It's also helped bring home how very different it is to be sitting comfortably in front of one's computer with the "Pause" or "Reset" button always within easy reach and the very hard work that actually goes on during all phases of a flight, beginning from the pre-flight briefing to engine shutdown at the destination airfield.

As a 'wannabe' pilot (who missed that particular train a long, long time ago)...my deep appreciation to all flight crews the world over.

To ITVV: Keep up the great work

Anthony Castrinakis

I'd like to say how much I enjoyed your MD-11 programmes.

Very good Job!

Thanks to Ruud and Robert for clearing up many things about the flightdeck that I had questions about.

Art Granda

Captain Bakker is truly someone who understands flying and how to explain it to people who may not.

This is by far the best programme in the series and for anyone looking for tips on how to be a smoother pilot, Rudd Bakker is the man to learn from.

Chris

I have just purchased your programme and I think it is fantastic.

Captain John Stephens

I just got my Martinair MD-11 programme.

I loved it.

Full of surprises, and also Ruud is very funny and smooth both in the cockpit, and on the radio... Robert is also very cool...

Vinny Siperelli

There's only one word for it... WOW!!!

Man was I impressed.

I have several others of your programmes and thought this was brilliant.

It was excellently presented, Ruud makes it understandable for an average person

The camera shots are incredible, and Robert Lenz is very professional in my opinion.

Till your next programme, good luck

Vinny Siperelli

Enjoyed the Martinair programmes very much.

Christopher McMillan

I have most of your programmes and enjoy them all very much.

Thanks for a great product.

FDXmech

Hi, I must say your work is outstanding.

I have must of your collection; need 3 more programmes to complete it.

I love the Martinair programme; Captain Rudd Bakker's detailed explanation of the departure as he is actually flying it is superb.

Mario Ferretti

This programme is another fine example of the work that you folks are doing.

This programme demonstrates how important it is to match the right flight crew for the filming.

In the Martinair MD-11 programme the Captain (PF) continues give the viewer commentary of the approach right down to the runway. Outstanding!

In addition, the stringer at the end describing Martinair is an added treat that future airline companies should consider adding as a form of valuable corporate advertising.
