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.

      Most pilots working on their FAA Commercial Pilot Certificate are trying to gain experience in a less than Technologically Advanced Aircraft (TAA).

      However, when you get your Certificate, you might find yourself flying a right seat of a challenging airplane, like the Cessna King Air 200 G1000 NXi.
