Simtech Aviation New York City

At Simtech Aviation, we believe there is a better way to train and become a pilot. Each flight should not be a surprise.

We're a group of airline pilots and instructors who are passionate about aviation, and our mission is to help you achieve your aviation goals.

Our Founding

Simtech Aviation was founded by Julian Alarcon in 2017. While working along with the Manhattan Flight Club, he recognized the need for an accessible training center with quality equipment for New York pilots.

At Simtech Aviation We focus simulator training to prepare you for your next flight and introduce future pilots to aviation without having to leave New York City.

Our Mission

Simtech Aviation’s mission is to provide high quality training for new and experienced pilots. Flight simulation has great value in a pilot’s training, giving them space and time to work on advanced instrument procedures. We are here to help you hone your piloting skills and make strides towards achieving your dreams


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.


Kathleen S.

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!


Bobby L.

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.
