Simulator Training

Now you can train like the pros, build your confidence and take your training to a whole new level. Use our flight simulator to gain some experience no matter what the weather. You can practice procedures, pre-fly a cross-country flight, or polish up on some VOR tracking.

Simulator can’t be operated without a flight instructor

You have a dream to fly. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to get started.



We offer training with our brand new Redbird FMX. The Redbird FMX is a superior-quality, full motion, feature-rich Advanced Aviation Training Device designed with real-world flight training in mind.

Motion & Immersive Visuals

The Redbird FMX comes equipped with innovative, 3-axis, electric motion platform. The system provides effective motion feedback for yaw, pitch, and roll. With a world-wide terrain database to support the 200Β° visuals, the FMX lets you experience the view from the cockpit before they ever leave the ground.

One Simulator, Dozens of Airplanes

In less than 10 minutes, your instructors can switch the FMX from a 172 with analog gauges to a SR22 Perspective to a Baron 58 with a 430/530, or any of the 30+ aircraft configurations we offer. From the latest in glass panel technology to the old 6-pack and lots of GPS/Radio stacks in between, the FMX can meet just about any need.

Why train with Flight Simulator?

  • πŸ˜‡
    Less intimidating
    Your instructor can give you more personalized instruction since they don’t have to split their focus with the aircraft operation.
  • πŸ‘
    More efficient
    Valuable time isn't spent in taxiing out or waiting for an ATC release. You’ll also master radio communication skills like a pro pilot.No worrying about weather-related cancellations.
  • πŸ™Œ
    Aviation insurance underwriters mandate that as much training as possible be taken out of the aircraft and put into flight training devices.
  • πŸ€‘
    Saves money
    One hour in simulator equates to about three hours in an aircraft.
  • 🧭
    Broadens scope
    Pilots gain the first-hand experience with navigation facilities that are not available locally. This means you can take off in Miami and land in Los Angeles while sitting in a simulator in New York!
  • 🌑
    Comfortable environment
    Temperature and humidity are controlled. There is less noise in the simulator, allowing for more effective communication between the student and instructor.
  • πŸ†˜
    Mitigate risk
    Using flight simulation is the ability to practice handling in-flight emergencies and risky situations without the threat of any true danger. In a simulated flight, you have the freedom to make mistakes that might be impossible to survive in the β€œreal world.”

Benefits of Using Flight Simulators

  • πŸ‘
    20 hours of instrument rating can be completed in the simulator.
  • πŸ‘
    50 hours of the Commercial Pilot certificate can be completed in the simulator.
  • πŸ‘
    9 out of 10 requirements for an ''Instrument Proficiency Check'' can be completed in the simulator.

We offer variety of training aircraft

  • ✈️
    Cessna 172 with Garmin G1000 avionics and GFC700 autopilot.
  • ✈️
    Cessna 172 with analogue gauges, 530/430 GPS and Kap 140 autopilot.
  • ✈️
    Piper Archer with steam gauges, GNS430/530 GPS and Kap 140 autopilot.
  • ✈️
    Piper Seneca Twin-Engine with steam gauges avionics, GNS530/430 and Kap 140 autopilot.
  • ✈️
    Full motion platform.


  • Our instructors are active airline pilots who work with the simulator on their days off. The best way to meet/chat with an instructor is to book a lesson online or by calling us.

  • Yes! Because the simulator and the instructor are certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), at the end of each lesson we will sign his/her pilot logbook. A Pilot Logbook is a record of pilot flight experience, usually kept for life.

    • 10 hours block time for 65/hour
    • 20 hours block time for 60/hour
    • 50 hours block time for 50/hour

  • The hours logged on a simulator or airplane do not expire, but if a pilot has not flown in a long time, they are required by the FAA to meet a standard and experience level.

  • We welcome students of all ages, as there is no age requirement! We find that students around 10 years-old are most fit to use the simulator.

    • Cessna 172 with Garmin G1000 avionics and GFC700 autopilot
    • Cessna 172 with analog gauges,530/430 GPS and Kap140 autopilot
    • Piper Archer with steam gauges, GNS430/530 GPS and Kap140 autopilot
    • Piper Seneca twin-engine with steam gauges avionics, GNS530/430 and Kap140 autopilot
    • Full motion platform

  • The cost is the same $75.00 per hour whether it is set up for a single-engine aircraft or a multi-engine aircraft and the benefits will be apparent the first time you fly.

    By using our simulator, you won't be wasting time and money flying a plane to get to and from a practice area or an initial approach point so the time you spend in it will be vastly more productive. We can also tailor the location of the training and the weather so you will get the most out of your training dollars. Professional Pilots have been using flight simulators for decades to improve their skills and stay current. Now you can train like the pros, build your confidence and take your training to a whole new level.

  • For flight training, we tend to choose the Cessna 172 or Piper Archer with the Garmin G1000 because that is what you’d fly in real life.

  • Experience, rain, ice, snow, weight and balance or altitude issues, fog, storms, and specific scenarios of endless design. We offer purpose-built scenarios or you can ask us to set up a specific flight in specific weather conditions and give you any number of failures along the route to deal with. All at the touch of a button and with real results and action steps that must be performed.

  • First and foremost STUDY before you go to the airport
    While studying at home write down all your questions and come prepared to ask your instructor when you show up to the airport. You will learn more as an engaged student asking questions versus a one-way discussion where the instructor preaches aeronautical theory for an hour.
    Fly regularly
    Unfortunately flying is not like riding a bike. There are too many things that must be kept fresh in a new pilots mind and if they do not fly often they will be lost and have to be re-learned. You should commit yourself to fly at least two times a week. Flying is easy but earning a pilot certificate does take regular practice.
    Become an airport geek and get to know other pilots!
    Aviation is a tight-knit community. Knowing other pilots has its advantages such as meeting an aircraft owner who you can learn a lot about aviation. Also knowing people around the field you might land your first job since many flying positions are not posted publicly and are word of mouth.

    Flight simulators
    Flight simulators are especially great for learning instrument procedures since they can reset an approach in a matter of seconds. This allows a pilot to fly several more instrument approaches an hour versus just 1 or 2 in an aircraft. Also, this time in a simulator is significantly cheaper than flying an aircraft and counts towards required hours to complete the private, instrument, and commercial certificates!
