Experience the Value of Flight Simulation for Private Pilot Training

At Simtech Aviation, we understand how difficult it is to get good flight training for Private Pilot Training in Manhattan.

How Are We Different?

Private Pilot Training in Manhattan

Using a simulator while working on your private pilot’s certificate is a good way to supplement your hours. It allows your instructor to focus more on teaching than on aircraft operation. It creates a training environment that isn’t dependent on weather and air traffic conditions, which means no more missed lessons for reasons beyond your control. And with Simtech Aviation’s experienced instructors, more efficient training means getting your certificate with the lowest minimum hours possible.

A simulator will allow you to experience different types of aircraft and avionics. You’ll better master radio communication skills. And you’ll learn the types of procedures and methodology that you’ll experience as an actual airline pilot.

Each of our FAA certified instructors and airline pilots started off right where you are now – as a private pilot. Which is why we know better than anyone how invaluable guidance and mentorship can be. As a member at Simtech Aviation, you’ll get the professional guidance you need from aviation professionals who care.

Gaining and maintaining proficiency as a pilot can be an expensive and time-consuming experience. Why make it more expensive, and more time-consuming?

Our Aviation Training Devices and our central location in midtown Manhattan means you don’t have to drive out of the city as often for your training. You’ll spend more time mastering your pilot skills, and less time sitting in your car!

All of our instructors are FAA-certified, active airline pilots, and have each logged more than 1000 hours of instruction, and more than 2000 hours of flight time. But more importantly, we’re not trying to build hours. We’ve already reached our aviation goals. Let us help you reach yours!

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.

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.

David J.

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.

Simtech Aviation is great to work with and very knowledgeable in this field. They are continually working on making the process of scheduling your simulator and instructor time as seamless as possible would definitely suggest you try them out.
