Unleash Their Inner Pilot:
Certified Flight Simulator Experience Gift Certificate
Does your loved one aspire to pilot an airplane? Our gift certificates provide hands-on training in a FAA Certified Flight Simulator, led by seasoned airline pilots. This comprehensive experience prepares them for the learning, effort, and readiness required to become pilot.
Superior Flight Training Experience
Start Your Journey with a Pilot Logbook!
A pilot logbook is essential for every budding pilot, as it meticulously recording their flight training progress. It records important details such as flight hours, aircraft type, flight duration, and whether the flight was solo or supervised. After each lesson, our participants receive a pilot logbook, setting them on their path to document their flight journey.
What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Say About Us:
I was given a flight simulator gift certificate for Christmas 2019.
Then you all know what happened in 2020 so I didn’t have a chance to use it, but how happy I was to know that it has been extended.
So, finally in mid 2021 I had my instrument lesson and it’s been just amazing! Using the flight simulator is a great way to stay current with an instrument rating, plus I got to know so much useful information from the real airline pilot. Thanks Julian!

Our 8 year old son has been obsessed with aviation for nearly 2 years now. It started with some exciting international travel in 2019 which lead to non-stop drawings of planes along with incessant book reading and online videos, many visits to Intrepid and also LI Air & Space and a rapidly building collection of various scale models.
All of this eventually lead to explorations with app-based "flight simulators" which piqued his interest even further, but ultimately seemed a bit complicated to manage without some real instruction (YouTube tutorials were only somewhat helpful and us parents know nothing about flying!).
For his 8th birthday, we were looking for a way to level-up his aviation interest and thought about a professional-grade flight simulator lesson, but honestly did not think we would find an instructor willing to work with such a young kid. We also figured it might be too complicated for his age, so we pursued it thinking at least it could be a fun birthday experience. We found Simtech online and booked a 1 hour lesson online with Julian who was in touch with me immediately regarding lesson details and maintained clear dialogue in the days leading up the lesson.
When we arrived at Simtech, we were impressed with the high-tech, well-organized space ...and the lesson was even more impressive. Julian was incredibly kind and patient with our young child and provided excellent, inspiring instruction. We were blown-away that our son actually gained a reasonable chunk of technical knowledge in just 1 hour ...and he was immediately asking for another lesson!
We booked another 1 hour lesson recently and our son amazingly recalled much of what was taught in the 1st lesson which (in my estimation) was largely due to Julian's teaching style...and we are now ready to book a "student lesson bundle".
So, what started as a casual birthday gift is now a more serious skill-building pursuit thanks to the stellar instruction by Julian. I would highly recommend to anyone who thinks their young child might be

Absolutely amazing setup, very timely email communications, I can't wait to go back! It is so special to have talented flight instructors right in Manhattan where it's tough to find that great place to learn.

I have a few flight hours under my belt, and I really appreciated how Julian tailored the lesson based on my level of experience. A professional grade simulator in the heart of Manhattan is such a gem, but the real value is having a teacher who can clearly explain the broad range of concepts, and make the best use of the time together. I'm definitely looking forward to booking another lesson!

Personalized Flight Simulator Lesson
Each lesson is tailored to align with the learner's experience level and personal objectives, ensuring maximum benefit from the session. Our experience is designed to cater to everyone, from novices to advanced student pilots.
What to expect during the lesson:
- Preflight Briefing (30 minutes): We discuss the participant's flying background, objectives, and expectations while reviewing navigational charts, weather, and other aviation question they might have.
- Customized Simulator Experience: Depending on the individual's experience level, we cover various aspects of flying, including aircraft control, checklist usage, taxiing, takeoffs, climbs, descents, turns, and trim settings. For student pilots and those working on their instrument rating, we tailor the experience to match their current level of training.
