Our custom built six degree of motion sim 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.
Our initial instrument sim can give you procedure training including the initial sim training required for the instrument rating, six month instrument competency checks, Garmin 1000 and Garmin 530 training and part of the instrument proficiency training if you are too late to complete an instrument currency. The primary sim is in addition to our full six degree of motion sim. We can also set up the primary sim for several different aircraft types. By appointment only.
We have numerous courses available for all levels of pilots. We can do pre-check ride preps with a retired DPE. We have standard courses and can put together a custom course for your needs. Just contact us on our contact form and tell us what your experience level is what you need help with. We can provide pre-aircraft check outs for most aircraft and focus on emergency procedures. We specialize in twin engine emergency training.
What Pilots have to say about our Simulator and Instructors.
First time in this SIM. It was great, will use it again.
Looking forward to using the full motion SIM.
The method of an engine failure on a multi engine aircraft is fine for a check ride but in real life you better have it nailed. I got worked out on the “steps” to doing it right. Thanks Rick.
I have found this simulator invaluable. There is no dead time when you are working on a specific skill.
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 ‘picture’ not just the speed.
The way we are taught to handle single engine loss is antiquated.
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.
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, answer session. I will be back.
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 important). We then went to the full motion sym and did more approaches at night, in weather, failures, gear failures….everything you can think of. It was a good 2 days and very customized to what you need. This is not a cookie cutter training. Rick knows the 300/400 series airplanes very well and customizes the training for what you need. It is one on one the entire time and he assesses your abilities and then you work on what you need to work on. I really appreciated the customized approach as I didnt feel I was wasting anytime with procedures that I had already mastered. In conclusion, I would highly reccomend Aircraft Simulator Training in Santa Rosa and I think you will enjoy the experience. I stayed at the Vitners Inn and flew into KSTS. It was a great experience. Oh…and being in Sonoma is a nice plus! The wine is fantastic!
Love the new machine. We flew the “Miracle on the Hudson” and I swear once we ditched the jet it started rocking gently like a boat. Very realistic….and FUN!
