Flight Simulator Training

Train for your next flight, or pilot license, and not leave New York City.

If you are bitten by the bug of flying and have started your research on flight schools to achieve your dream of getting your pilots license, you will soon realize that it takes time and there is a lot of technical information to learn on how to become a pilot. You will also see that several flight schools in the New York City greater area are offering flight time, instructor and flight simulator training at similar prices, then you will face the decision on selecting one of five airports surrounding Manhattan. Which one is right for you? Don't leave Manhattan yet, let us help you!

We are a group of flight instructors and many of us are Active Airline Pilots, willing to share our passion of aviation to help you make your dream of coming a pilot a reality.

We would suggest starting on a flight simulator.  Flight simulator training is a great way to learn and safely practice worse case scenarios, or help meet your private pilot or flight instrument training requirements.  Flight simulator training can offset your actual fly time requirements, and training in Manhattan eliminates the travel time from NYC to surrounding airports.

At Simtech Aviation, we bring the tools you need to be successful in your flight training in Manhattan, with a state-of-the-art flight simulation and aviation training in Midtown Manhattan using a flight simulator with experience instructors. You get real-time training, simulations and the personalized coaching you need to make the most out of your time in the air.

Our team of instructors are industry-leading FAA certified, Active Airline pilots and our most junior instructors have well over 1,000 hours of instructing and over 2,000 hours of total flight time (That is well over five years of flight experience).

What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Say About Us:

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. 

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.

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.
