Kids In Aviation

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

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.


Simtech Aviation brings state-of-the-art simulator and aviation training to Midtown Manhattan. Our team of instructors are industry-leading FAA certified Instructors and active Airline Pilots who are eager to share the passion of aviation with the next generation of aviators.


Your child will thank you for unique life long gift of getting a pilots licence.

What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Say About Us:

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.

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.


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, 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.

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.

Julian was My flight instructor. I can not emphasize enough his level of expertise, professionalism and class. If anyone is lucky enough to do business with Julian you’ll find it a pleasure. I trust Julian with my life. Come to think of it I have. Many times. Easily 5 Stars plus.


George M.

Julian is compassionate and patient, and also very knowledgeable in aviation. It has been great to get to know him and learn from him.


Peter E.

Julian is the ACE flight instructor. He is patient, passionate, and professional. The three most important things everyone need to master in flight and in life. Personally, Julian has been my flight instructor for almost 5 years. In between I have had some instruction from others, (simply because of scheduling issues) I must say the difference is night and day. If you don't believe me, give me a try, and you'll know I'm right.

Experience the Value of Flight Simulation for Kids


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.


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.


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.
