Due to Covid and schedule conflicts it took me a while to get down to Burnett, Texas, and do my recurrent training at Aircraft Simulator Training. I’ve been overdue for sim training and I was extremely curious to see if AST would live up to the incredible accolades it has received on our Forum. Here
Changing the way Aircraft Training is done.
Custom Training Courses
Our training goal is to put you in control of any situation that you may encounter. We train so that recovery from that problem will become second nature to you. We train to help you gain the ability to get to a safe landing. We train to keep you from getting into more trouble until you can review the emergency checklist. We train to help you save your passengers and your aircraft.
Aircraft SIMULATOR Courses
Six Degrees of Motion SIM
Our custom built full six degrees of motion simulator is fully enclosed and creates total movement and actual flight characteristics. It is used for high end training in our high performance aircraft. This includes jet training, turboprop training, large twin engine training and complex aircraft training. We wanted to give an actual aircraft feel that some sims just do not do.
King Air Initial and Recurrent Training
Our full motion 6 degree of freedom simulator is used by our experienced instructors for King Air 200, 100 and 90 computers. We have instructors who fly the planes and teach in the planes. We have taught numerous pilots on the operations of the King Air aircraft. This is an intense course and you will be able to understand, operate, and fly the King Air aircraft. Training available now.

I wanted to let you know how much fun I had. Thank you for taking the time to tailor your training to me and my inexperience in the airplane. I look forward to training with you again next year. I hop… Read more
The way we are taught to handle single engine loss is antiquated.
It was pretty darned convincing like an airplane. A+
I just finished up the two day course offered by AST and I have to say it was the best simulator training I’ve ever had. First of all, the equipment was the best I have trained on, it’s a new, ful… Read more
First time in this SIM. It was great, will use it again.
First class training in the 421. I got tired of having the “book” read to me and not having a good simulator. These guys know these airplanes and everything is a discussion with a question, answ… Read more
I could never land my Mooney consistently. I was either too fast and bounced or too slow and bounced. I also put it on the nose wheel a couple of times. Rick showed me it was all about the ‘pi… Read more
I showed up this morning and we went over some more systems and talked about some FAA legal stuff. Then off to the G1000 sim for all kinds of failures and approaches (I have a G500 so this was importa… Read more
Rick McGuire knows these Twin Cessna aircraft from nose to tail. He will teach you not only how to properly fly them but how to maintain them and what to look for emergency wise in the air.
After a nine year absence from flying, due to family and work obligations, I decided if I was going to get back into flying multi engine aircraft, most notably 310, Seneca, or Aztec, I would seek out … Read more
There have been several aircraft that have had major accidents due to equipment problems. These problems have been electrical components that have gone “outside their regular job functions” and over controlled the aircraft causing a serious accident or accidents. One of the recent problems has involved out of control trim problems. When I was at
We actually own a 340 and a 421C. We have flown these aircraft and taught in these aircraft for years. The picture shows Chuck, one of our premier instructors, flying to the east side of Houston to our other facility. The beginning of the day was all IFR with a 200 ft ceiling and ½
I have had to use the emergency gear extension on airplanes several times. Is this a bad maintenance problem from an annual? Absolutely not. Gear problems happen. It happens because the underlying system has problems. In fact, in aircraft problems usually come in twos or threes. In certain airplanes “swinging” the gear is a major
