What Pilots Have to Say about Simtech Training:

Simtech and Julian has given such great mentoring and nurtured a deep passion in my 15 year old for aviation and flying. Not only that, but has done it during this year of isolation and Covid.

My son really struggled with engagement during the shutdown, but Julian was there for him, kept up the pace and pretty much rescued the year!

It is a terrific program, my son has read these intense manuals, looks forward to the lessons and has turned into a guy with a mission. It's been such a gift and joy to have these guys be apart of our lives. Thanks!

I came for an instrument currency session and thought it was going to be a routine experience but Julian took it to the next level.

He provided insight into everything, big and small, and I walked out after three hours with another six months on my currency. More importantly, I left with a higher level of instrument proficiency that I didn’t imagine I would gain while using the sim.

As an airline pilot, Julian comes with knowledge that I wouldn’t get on my own. I’ll be going back for more than just instrument currency.

This is the place to go if you are an NYC-based GA pilot looking to stay proficient/current while not having to go out to the airport!

...I decided to take my first step towards learning to fly.I wasn’t quite ready to get into a real airplane just yet. I knew there were concepts, procedures, and general aviation knowledge I could learn in a simulator, at my own pace, and for a fraction of the cost... 

Things like radio communication, understanding flight controls, creating flight plans, learning how to use the g1000, interacting with ground or air traffic control — real deal concepts I can learn safely without being flustered in the air.

I rather spend time learning how to actually fly once I’m in a real plane, bringing all the general knowledge I’ve learned in the sim...  It’s been a few months since my last sim lesson; covid is to blame for that. Now that businesses are opening and NYC has reached phase 4, I am eager to get back on schedule with training.

If all the right measures are taken (sanitizing equipment between lessons, speakers instead of headsets, fixed mic away from face, plexiglass between teacher and student) I would feel comfortable with getting back in the sim...

Great experience. Went for instrument currency, and got an excellent workout. Julian made it challenging and fun. Beyond the basics, he covered descent planning in the G1000, rules of thumb calculations, and gotchas with the G1000. Very professional and has a wealth of knowledge to share.

I currently live in Manhattan …was looking … to maintain my instrument currency as well as improve IFR and G1000 skills… Simtech Aviation exceeded expectations…the Sim located near Herald Square … easy to schedule … over the weekend… the most realistic representation of the G1000…I enjoyed the lessons with both Peter and Julian. Both instructors were very knowledgeable and experienced with a professional aviation background. I highly recommend this Sim and intend on returning for additional training.

Simtech Aviation is a Certified Flight Simulator in midtown Manhattan. It’s the closes thing to a flight school in the NYC area...designed for people who love aviation and want to learn how to fly... Here you learn to fly with a state-of-the-art Flight Simulator (AATD) taught by industry-leading, active airline pilots. My 12 year old son has been taking private flight lessons with them and they are EXCELLENT...

I have been very impressed with the quality of instruction...the depth of their knowledge and their ability to train effectively...The ability to pause the simulation in order to brief (or debrief mistakes) is invaluable. I would say I accomplish 2-3x more learning from my simulator training days vs. my time in the plane. HIGHLY recommend this approach to pursuing both private and instrument ratings.
