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.
I was sweating bullets, but I learned the proper way to keep my 310 in the air on one engine.
Did not think I needed a full motion sim but when they closed the door on night IFR approaches and stared pulling engines and creating problems it felt like the real thing. Great training.
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.
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 flying on the gauges.
Looking forward to using the full motion SIM.
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.
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.
The AST G1000 simulator is an accurate G1000 sim.
I am a female flight instructor who flies a corporate 421C. I trained with AST for my initial 421C insurance qualification.Rick drilled over and over low altitude engine loss and his procedure of ‘stabilize the aircraft’ first.I left KSVE (4,100 feet MSL) and at 200 feet AGL the right engine begin to fail. The aircraft yawed – manifold and rpm began to drop. I feathered the right engine and worked 0 VSI and stabilized speed at 90 knots. I slowly turned back to airport into dead engine (yes dead engine as turning engine makes the turn) using no rudder. My passenger and I landed safely. I just kept remembering what Rick had taught me over and over during the failure.
They can fail systems that you think would never fail. This is the way to learn how to handle emergencies.
