Instrument Procedures are complex and it is easy for you to fall behind the airplane. In our simulator, you are in a controlled environment where you can learn:
- Challenging Instrument Procedures
- To stay ahead of the airplane
- The features of the Garmin G1000
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 PFC GTX 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 instructor’s experience will help you become a safer and more efficient pilot. And you’ll learn how to implement the procedures and techniques the pros use – skills that will aid you in real-life situations.
Book a 2 or 3 hour lesson, with any of our instructors to accomplish the items needed for Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC).
You will still need to accomplish the items required as per FAA-S-ACS-8- Latest Revision
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.

How Does a Simulator Help you with your Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC)
At Simtech Aviation, we understand how difficult it is to maintain your Instrument Currency. The travel time from Manhattan to a local general aviation airport is long and the busy airspace or inclement weather can get on the way of you regaining the knowledge and skills needed for Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) and stay current.
The following IPC tasks must be accomplished in your Aircraft:
- Circling Approach (SE/ME IPC)
- Landing from a Straight-in or Circling Approach (SE/ME IPC)
- One Engine Inoperative During Straight-and-Level Flight (ME IPC)
- One Engine Inoperative Instrument Approach (ME IPC)
