Private Pilot License for Beginner Pilot Training in Manhattan

You have a dream to fly. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to get started. Or it’s inhibited mid-training by physical limitations.

Whether you’ve just begun your flying journey or are close to earning your private pilot license, our advanced simulator and team are here to help you succeed.

Private Pilot License Training Benefits

Using a simulator while working on your private pilot training is a great way to supplement your flight experience.

Simtech Aviation New Jersey How are we different

You’ll have more time to train, learn faster, and earn your private pilot licenses sooner.


You’ll learn the same flight discipline active airline pilots use.

Flying aircraft in bad weather

No worrying about missed lessons for reasons beyond your control. Commute time, weather, and air traffic conditions are no longer a problem.

“...student pilots can obtain a pilot certificate in 40 hours under Part 141, but in reality they can be chalking up 100 or even 200 hours to get there, thanks to a variety of reasons."-AOPA

Extra Perks of Training with a Simulator

Student Pilot Training in Manhattan

A simulator allows you to experience different aircraft with Garmin G1000 during the training for your Private Pilot License (that would normally cost $$$ to rent).


You’ll master radio communication skills like a pro pilot.

…When you live in the city getting to a flight school can be tough…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.


Kathleen S.

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.
