Changing the way Aircraft Training is done.

Custom 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.

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.


New turboprop facility at Georgetown Texas (KGTU). Booking for training slots beginning August 1, 2022. A totally new facility and full motion turboprop simulator. Contact Jim Minton, turboprop manager for information.
