At Simtech Aviation, we understand how difficult it is to get good flight training in Manhattan. The travel time from Manhattan to a local general aviation airport is long, and that means there is no easy access to the tools you need to regain your pilot skills and get you flying again.

With Simtech Aviation, you can expect:

A convenient location to save you time

A safe and comfortable learning environment

Mentorship from experienced airline pilots

How Are We Different?

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, ATP-rated 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!

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.

What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Day About Us:

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 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.
