What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Say About Us:

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.

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.

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. 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.

Maintaining proficiency not just currency should be the goal of any instrument rated pilot. Julián and his team provide one of the most time efficient ways to do so for Manhattan residents. The use of multiple situations across the country and in different flight conditions combined with Pilot Edge that creates live ATC interaction, is highly effective. Add Julian’s enthusiasm and knowledge transmission from his day job as United Express pilot and you have training that can’t be beat for any private pilot. I really recommend this training for any pilot looking to materially improve safety margins in their day to day live flying.

Mark Y.

Simtech Aviation is very accommodating when it comes to working around your schedule. The training is top notch, I find using the simulator for IFR currency is a great way to stay sharp while staying away from real danger. I strongly suggest giving Simtech Aviation a try!

Aaron D. 

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!

David 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.

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.

Jeremy M.

Simtech Aviation is very accommodating when it comes to working around your schedule. The training is top notch, I find using the simulator for IFR currency is a great way to stay sharp while staying away from real danger. I strongly suggest giving Simtech Aviation a try!

Aaron D.

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.
