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.
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
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
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
They told me the sim was more difficult but when I got in the plane it would be easier. Boy were they right.
Looking forward to using the full motion SIM.
They can fail systems that you think would never fail. This is the way to learn how to handle emergencies.
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.
The way we are taught to handle single engine loss is antiquated.
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 was privileged to spend two amazing days of learning with Rick McGuire, at Aircraft Simulator Training, in Burnet, Texas. I can confidently say that I learned more in those two days than in the last… 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.
