Hi Flash,

You are given a pretty low cloud base (about 400' on depature) which you never climb out of (you only go up to 5000') so there isn't much to see. However, the cloud does miraculously rise enough to let you land, just!!.
Weather is a fairly steady wind, about 15-20 kts and not a stonking x-wind either.
When you 1st arrive you will get paired up with another candidate for the sim. It is mainly the PF who will be assessed (you are briefed not to give too much help as PNF!!) but PNF still has to do radios, recall drills for engine fire, reset nav aids and all that good stuff.
Good luck.
