Top three problems that occur during regular flight training in New York City:
Hard to Access
If you live or work in NYC it's hard to find a flight school near you. The commute can be time consuming, and by the time you get to the airport to fly, the New York airspace is congested.
Flight training sessions have to be postponed or cancelled because of bad weather. Most general aviation airplanes cannot fly in icing conditions, low visibility, or high winds.
At Simtech Aviation, we believe that flight training should be accessible, high-quality, and joyful.

What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Say About Us:
…When you live in the city getting to a flight school can be tough…If you want something convenient to help keep your skills fresh, try training at this facility and ask for Julian. It helps keeps the rust off and more! I highly recommend it.
A really fantastic set-up to practice, learn or gain new skills. This can help at any stage of your flying career. The team takes the time to find out what you are trying to achieve and is incredibly supportive. Well worth a visit!
Julian and his team provide a time-efficient way to pilot training right in Manhattan. Multiple locations, flight conditions, combined with Pilot Edge that is a “live” ATC is both highly effective and convenient. I highly recommend this training for any student pilot who wants to practice in Manhattan without the hassles of getting out to an airport. I have learned a lot from Julian which I am incorporating into my flight studies.
