What Pilots Have to Say about Simtech Training:

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...

learning from a career pilot is the only way in my opinion. I’ve used the Redbird full motion and touchscreen G1000 simulators … but I’ve found they don’t have the same features… Simtech’s G1000 simulator offers all the features the real one has, and allowed me to learn the platform at a fraction of the cost!

I’m a pilot that can’t always find the time to fly, so when I’m going to fly IFR I’ll use the simulator to sharpen my skills before I go out in the real world…

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.

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.
