The simulator will be used for the training and recertification of pilots and consisted of several out-of-gauge (OOG) pieces. One of the largest units, measuring approximately 6.5 m x 4.5 m x 4 m, weighed around 10 tonnes. 

Due to roadworks, the Van der Vlist team conducted additional route surveys to ensure a most efficient and optimal course of direction. In order to reach the destination, the trucks had to leave the highway in Poland and follow the national road for about 100 km. 

After arriving at the site, Van der Vlist’s specialised rigging team unloaded the simulator, placed it onto the foundation and mounted all parts.
