I've had the pleasure of undertaking remote flight instruction with Julian, and the experience has been truly outstanding. Despite my West Coast location, Julian's commitment to accommodate time differences made for a seamless process, offering flexibility for sessions even during unconventional hours.

Utilizing my home flight simulator on a laptop, our lessons were both practical and engaging. Julian’s proficiency in employing the Garmin G1000 system and IFR procedures made complex topics understandable.

His extensive airline background, combined with an effective teaching approach, streamlined my learning experience. Through Julian's detailed ground school sessions and comprehensive check ride prep, I've gained invaluable insights for my instrument rating.

His ability to translate his experience and knowledge into digestible instruction is commendable. Aviator.nyc / readyroger.com remote flight instruction service stands out not only for its quality and depth but also for its respect for student's time and convenience. His broad industry knowledge and approachable teaching techniques make him an excellent choice for anyone seeking to improve their aviation skills.

I struggled to complete my instrument rating because living in the city I couldn't find the time to regularly go fly procedures with enough frequency to build the muscle memory. Aviator.nyc allowed me to not only practice frequently, but it saved me money since I got to use the simulator for some of my hours, and it also taught me procedures for how to brief and think about approaches so that when I got in the actual plane I was ready to fly the approaches rather than struggling to learn them and wasting expensive time. I continue to go there for instrument currency.

Julian helped me train and prepare for my Instrument Rating, which I passed on the first attempt. A lot of my preparation and success came from my training sessions with Julian.

...Julian helped me with everything from the basics of instrument training (attitude flying), to building flight plans, navigation, holds & hold entries, and of course many, many approaches.

I found that when I was in the plane, there were things that weren't clicking, and I'd take them to Julian to work through. The next time in the plane I had it all mastered and my flight instructor was really impressed.

Additionally, Julian walked me through multiple oral exam preparation sessions remotely over Zoom to help me identify and cover gaps in the knowledge.

Highly, highly recommend working with Julian for your training.

My experience working with Julian was tremendously pleasant throughout the whole session.
If I can turn back time, I will schedule Julian and his team for airline preparation as early as possible so that way I won't be washed out. Julian teaching style is tailor to individuals no matter zero time or airline pilot level. The amount of quality training is priceless. At the end of day you'll realize flight is nothing but joyful but the key is working with a good instructor. Appreciate your mentoring and honest opinion. Thank you so much Julian.

Julian was a crucial part of passing my instrument check ride. It was convenient and inexpensive to do much of my training at home remotely. I still even use this training to prep for and virtually fly and challenging flight before getting in the plane. Highly recommend.

Julian’s guidance was critical to me passing my instrument checkride on the first try. I’ve had about 5 instrument instructors and Julian was by far the most experienced. I’d recommend him to anyone trying to improve their instrument flying.
