What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Say About Us:

Went to the Madison Avenue location for a Meet Up unsure of what to expect and was very pleasantly surprised. I had an initial appointment to brush up on my instrument procedures with flight instructor Julian where he worked to familiarize me with the system.

Julian was very patient even though I was terribly rusty at the time. I booked the system to train solo and Julian was there to answer any questions I had on the system. This space is great for when you just want a quite space to focus.

When you live in the city getting to a flight school can be tough. KFRG and KHPN-it takes something to get out there. 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.

"Training with Julian was very valuable. Much more efficient to practice IFR work in the sim rather than the airplane. Julian could pause the approaches to point out issues, recommend corrections, then I would go back to re-do just those phases that were giving me trouble. Unlike many instructors, Julian is an experienced, active airline pilot. I learned a lot from his real world experience!"

David M.

A really fantastic setup to practice, learn or gain new skills. This can help at any stage of your flying career. The team take the time to find out what you are trying to achieve and are incredibly supportive. Well worth a visit!


Bobby L.

"I did a 3 hour intro to IFR lesson with Julian and had a great time! The sim setup is good and Julian is a great instructor. Will definitely be back!"


Adam 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. I have learned a lot from Julian which I am incorporating into my flight studies.


Garry H.

I've trained with Simtech Aviation on a few occasions - not just to stay IFR current, but also to be challenged and maintain proficiency. As an active airline pilot, Julian brings a wealth of experience and teaches the type of thinking pilots do on the flight deck of a commercial jet. Simtech Aviation/Julian is top notch instruction.

Learn Instrument Procedures

Flight school instructors typically only teach the basics to get pilots past the checkride. Handling trickier situations in flight can be difficult. What if you are flying a Technologically Advanced Aircraft approaching 120 knots in icing conditions down to minimums? That’s where we come in. We want you to feel confident you have the knowledge and skills to handle the approach safely and efficiently.

Decision Making

Because Technologically Advanced Aircraft fly faster, particularly turboprop or turbofan airplanes, and has more information available, the pilots need to be able to make accurate decisions in a timely manner. Especially during difficult situations.

Lack of real-world experience

Unless pilots frequently fly to different airports in different weather conditions, they probably only possess the skills to handle their regular airport in good weather. Our instructors, on the other hand, fly to various places in the US in all types of weather conditions: icing-Approaches down to minimums-around thunderstorms. They know what techniques to call upon and how to control their Technologically Advanced Aircraft properly.

Don’t fly by the seat of your pants!

We are here to help expand your knowledge so you don’t get caught off-guard in a difficult situation! Our flying culture has Standard Operating Procedures that are the backbone of our everyday flying and we look forward to sharing them with you.
