A Long Haul – Door to door Flight Simulator relocation

Van der Vlist Projecten has recently completed the relocation of a full Flight Simulator from Miami to Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam.

This turnkey project required Van der Vlist Projecten to provide a door to door solution. The project started with the transportation and packing of the simulator on site in Miami. Being such an expensive piece of equipment, it was imperative to ensure the machine was safely and securely packed. Once the engineers were satisfied, the transportation element of this project could begin.

The first and shortest leg involved a steady transport by road from the loading site to Miami Port. On arrival at Miami Port, Van der Vlist Projecten engineers were responsible for the securing and lashing of the packaged simulator onto flat racks for onward transport by sea to Antwerp Port.

The final leg of the journey from Antwerp Port to Schiphol was carried out by road using 2 low loaders from the Van der Vlist fleet with another Van der Vlist vehicle utilised to deliver the Van der Vlist Projecten four point lifting system to the Airport. With both the cargo and the lift system in place, Van der Vlist Projecten Engineers were then able to unpack, assemble and install the Flight Simulator. After successful and incident free completion of this project, the simulator was ready for use at the Schiphol training centre.
