How Does a Simulator Help You Regain your Pilot Instrument Flying Skills?
Using a simulator helps foster an environment where you can become comfortable practicing complex instrument procedures, managing workload during critical phases of flight, and working with advanced avionics and electronic flight bags (EFB). Critical skills needed to be an instrument proficient, specially if you have flown in instrument condition recently and need an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC).
A simulator also creates a training environment that isn’t dependent on weather and air traffic conditions, which means no more flight canceled for reasons beyond your control. And it will help you keep your instrument flying skills sharp and up-to-date. Not only flying instrument approaches to pass your Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC).
In simulator also allows you to challenge your pilot skills and stay active in an IFR environment safely and comfortably. Your instructor will be able to pause training, discuss particular scenarios, and provide instantaneous feedback, before resuming your session. This extra layer of instruction will help refine the types of real-life skills that may not be practical to do in the airplane.
At Simtech Aviation, you won’t have to drive to the airport to fly instrument approaches. You can accomplish almost 90% of your Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) using a GT G1000 with our instructors, and then we’ll fly in your airplane to finish the Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC),
as per the FAA-S-ACS-8 latest revision.
How Are We Different?

Our GT G1000 Simulator is one of a kind. It has all the 99% of the features of Real G1000, features such as Building holds, loading Departure/Arrival Procedures, and loading airways.

What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Say About Us:
"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!"
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!
"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!"
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.
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.
