Aircraft brakes are totally different than automobile and truck brakes. Yes, they both work on the rotor/pad principal, much like the principal of bicycles but the application and use of those aircraft brakes take on a whole new difference in application on an aircraft on landing. First an automobile or truck will be on tires connected

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
in our state-of-the-art simulators
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.

Everyone at AST possess a genuine desire to teach and make you a safer pilot and I truly appreciate the effort they apply. Thanks for making me a better pilot.
What a great group of guys. Highly recommended by me, can’t wait till next year.
No comparison between any other sim training. Once at AST, you’ll never regret making the decision. It’s a treasure for Cessna owner/pilots..It’s that good!
Training at AST was unquestionably the most profitable training time I’ve ever spent in my 45 years of flying.
As a retired USAF pilot, and now airline / GA pilot, I give AST my highest recommendation.
In May of 2022, a Twin Cessna 421C departed Houston Hobby airport on runway 12R. Right after liftoff an engine failure occurred and the pilots asked to come back in. The pilot lost the right engine which is the good engine and he took no evasive action to control the engine loss. He began a
Scenario One One person in a Cessna 340 with fuel only in the tip tanks. It loses an engine and it only has the 310 horse power, 520 engines and three blade props. Will if fly? Of course it will on one engine and probably even if you are sloppy and have no remembrance of
Pilots will call us and tell us they want (and need) an initial training. The initial training is prepared with a syllabus that is approved by the aviation insurance companies. When you take an initial training, the training is geared around a syllabus that has been reviewed, squeezed, copied, changed, and finally approved. This is what the insurance companies
