We are seeing some strange brake problems on the Twin Cessna line. This has recently shown up primarily on the 421 aircraft but we had a 340 aircraft showing the same problems. Having been in numerous businesses, I spent many years operating a large repair facility for vehicles all the way up to large trucks. I
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
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.
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.

What Pilots have to say about our Simulator and Instructors.
Outstanding! I needed a straight forward review of systems operations and emergency procedures that focused on a few individual requests while providing an abundance of hands on practical training (si… Read more
Looking forward to using the full motion SIM.
I generally really, really hate simulators but this one pulled me in.
Let the guys give you instrument proficiency or instrument training then go fly your aircraft in instrument conditions. You will be able to tell the difference and you become totally confident in flyi… Read more
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!
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
I promised I’d write a review on my return. Just landed back in Birmingham and couldn’t wait to get to my office to communicate with y’all. I just returned from Rick McGuire’s amazing facility and … Read more
I was paying money to learn a G1000 system in the plane when the sim got me farther down the road quicker and for less money.
Thanks to those who have previously posted reviews about Rick McGuire and AST in Burnet, Texas. As I frequently visit the Texas Hill Country, I read those favorable reviews with interest and elected t… Read more
Best Aviation Safety Investment in years! Say goodbye to the national aircraft simulator training folks. Let’s face it: the big companies focus on the clients with big jets. They either have outdate… Read more

I had a recurrent pilot go through a two-day training and we spent a lot of time on systems. My systems background is grounded on “it really happened to me” approach or I really had to handle that problem when I was flying for a living. My pilot (I never call them ‘students’) told me
I started teaching in 1975 and it was not only teaching private pilots working on single engine aircraft but pilots who worked for our 135 operation in large multi engine aircraft and turboprops. With the ups and downs of the aircraft industry I had pilots that I taught that went on to fly large commercial
We possibly lost another Twin Cessna pilot yesterday. One of my friends notified me this morning in an email with the audio of the pilot addressing the problem with ATC. It was not pretty. As my friend stated it sounded like the pilot was under stress. In reviewing the audio it sounded like he was.
