The perfect gift for aspiring pilots in New York City

State-of-the-art FAA-Certified flight simulator

Experienced instructors who are active airline pilots

Located in midtown Manhattan: close to many trains, including Penn Station and Herald Square


Pilot Logbook is included with each gift certificate!

Because the Simulator and the instructor is FAA Certified, each lesson counts as Aeronautical Experience, regardless of the  experience level. If they already have one, make sure you bring it to the lesson!

At the end of the lesson, the instructor will make a entry on the pilot logbook!

Are they new to flying?


No sweat. We can teach them everything they need to know from flight controls to flying the plane. And when they want to fly a real airplane, they’ll feel confident in their core skill sets.

Are they under 16?


Interest in aviation often starts at an early age. There is no better way to explore than from the safety of our flight simulator.

Student or Private Pilot?


We will prepare them for real world flying and what to expect in the air.

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.

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.
