Using An Certified Flight Simulator with
Experienced Instructors Without Leaving Manhattan
Kids Can Explore Aviation in NYC

Kids In Aviation

Our skill is only matched by our passion for the art of flying, which means you get to fly alongside and learn from pilots who are completely invested in introducing kids to aviation.

Teaching Kids how to Fly Planes

NOTE: Simulators are not video games, they are designer to learn how to fly.  We work with FAA Certified Aviation Training Devices, to simulate popular aircraft with basic flight instruments and the more advanced aircraft with the latest digital flight instruments and safety technologies.

You don't have to be a particular age before you can begin to take flying lessons and learn how to fly. But you must be at least 16 years old before you can solo an airplane and 17 before you can be issued a private pilot certificate (16 for balloon or glider).

Is your child looking to learn how to fly a plane, or become a pilot?  Using a flight simulator with a certified flight instructor is the easy and inexpensive way to help fuel their passion without leaving Manhattan.

The beauty of a flight simulator is age is not a limiting factor for a solo flight, and training in NYC eliminates hours of traveling to and from airports.  It also gives them the confidence of what to expect when they grab the controls of a plane for the first time.

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.

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.

"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'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.

"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!"

Experience the Value of Flight Simulation for Kids

01-Gain-Proficiency

Gain Proficiency

Flight Training in a simulator is not limited to adults. Kids from any age can try it, however, we recommend to be above the age 10.

02-Stay-Safe

Stay Safe

For many letting kids learn to drive could be a nerve racking experience. Good news! Letting kids explore aviation in a Simulator does not have to a nerve racking.

02_Mentor

Be Prepared

Flight Training could be the “Extracurricular” activity that will separate your kids from the competition for prep schools and colleges.

While the minimum age to get a Private Pilot Certificate is 16 for airplanes with engines, and 14 for gliders (sailplane), many of young are bitten with the aviation bug way before then.

Using a Flight Simulator in Manhattan with a certified instructor will help you maintain the interested of your kid in aviation.
