Accelerate your IFR flight training by eliminating the travel time from Manhattan to the airport and accomplish your instrument rating training goals faster and more efficiently, and get the confidence of knowing what you need to do before you're in the air.

What Can You Learn For Your Instrument Rating in a Simulator?

Practicing instrument jargon can be overwhelming. Learning on a simulator can provide a safer, more comfortable environment. And with a flight simulator, you’ll still experience a realistic flight experience, while using live air traffic control.

Advance Avionics

Flying an instrument approach requires one set of skills. Using the flight computers of modern airplanes requires another added set of skills. We can simulate different situations where you can build skills needed for pilot instrument rating flight training.

pause

Pause the Flight

Too much going on during a missed approach? Cleared for the approach is a mouthful? The GPS/Flight Management System (FMS) not doing what you need? No worries. We can pause the simulator lesson, talk about it, learn and then move on.

Different Locations

We are sure you know all of the local landmarks at your local airport, fixes, etc... But what happens when you go somewhere new flying under Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC)? Have you flown under IMC in mountainous terrain? Icing? A flight simulator is a great platform to build those skills.

Who Benefits?

Private Pilot Getting an Instrument Rating

Using a simulator while working on your pilot instrument rating flight training is a good way to supplement your aeronautical experience, as you can log up to 20 hours on an Advance Aviation Training Device. This allows your instructor to focus more on teaching than on aircraft operation. You can also create training scenarios – like flying into thunderstorms – that couldn’t be accomplished safely in an aircraft and will challenge your pilot skills.

Rusty Pilot Getting Back Into Flying

In a final ruling, the FAA emphasized the value of experiencing different types of aircraft and avionics along with a reduction in training time, cost, and environmental pollutants as a result of using a simulator. They also stated that using a flight simulator can be useful because it better trains the pilot to focus on and appropriately scan and interpret their flight instruments.

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.

"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!

development

Each of our FAA certified instructors and airline pilots were in the same place that you are now – as a private pilot working on a pilot instrument rating flight training. That's why we know better than anyone how invaluable guidance and mentorship can be. Let us share our knowledge and experience with you to make you a safer, more confident pilot. As a member at Simtech Aviation, you’ll get the professional guidance you need from aviation professionals who care.

Did We Mention Our Location?

Midtown Manhattan!

Our state of the art flight simulators and aviation training center in midtown Manhattan means you won’t have to drive out of the city as often for your training. You're able to credit up to 20 hours of aeronautical experience using our aviation training device with our quality instructors. This means you’ll spend more time mastering your instrument skills and less time sitting in your car!
