Denzel Washington trained in flight simulator for movie role

From WENN.com

The Training Day star has been nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for his performance as airline captain William 'Whip' Whitaker in the movie, and he has revealed the extent of his preparation for the part.

He underwent training in a flight simulator and learned how to get a jet airborne, but there was no need to study landing procedures as the film is based around an air crash probe.

Washington tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, ""I got in flight simulators which was great, and did mock take-offs and virtual flight. There was no need to learn how to land because we crashed the plane!""
