Experience the Value of Flight Simulation for Kids

Learn Real Piloting Skills from the Pros

FAA Certified Instructors Aviation Training

Our FAA-certified instructors are active airline pilots. Their knowledge, combined with our state-of-the-art simulator and an enthusiasm for flying, makes the experience fun and realistic for kids (and pilots of all ages!).

No Minimum Age

Simtech Aviation Age Limitation

You don't have to be a particular age before you take flying lessons with a simulator. 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).

Bonus Points

Flight Training is a great “Extracurricular” activity that will separate your kids from the competition for prep schools and colleges. And should they be interested in becoming a pilot one day, they’ll have the confidence to fly a real aircraft.

“Is a simulator a type of video game?”

FAA Certified Aviation Training Devices

Simulators are not video games. We work with FAA Certified Aviation Training Devices to simulate many different types of aircrafts with basic and advanced flight instruments, which are always up-to-date with the latest digital flight instruments and safety technologies.

      What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Say About Us:

      I always have our daughters (14 and 16) experienced something new when the opportunity arises. This time we were in vacation in NYC, and I came across with Simtech Aviation. Booking was very easy, and accurate and the instructor, Julian was incredible. They had a great time using the simulator, so much that now they want to become pilots when they get older. Highly recommended!


      Ximena M.

      I just took my 10-year-old for his first flight lesson. He had so much fun! The teacher (Julian) was both serious about him learning, but fun and patient. We’ll be back for sure, many times I expect.


      Jonathan H.

      The flight simulator was the real deal. Everybody is super professional and friendly. My 9 years old son had an amazing first flight lesson - the instructor was just perfect.


      Sedric S.

      My son took a flight lesson with Julian. He had a great time and learned a lot! Julian was patient and willing to answer all his questions. I highly recommend Simtech aviation! It was a wonderful experience
