The Latest in “Stupid Ways” to Operate a Twin Cessna The moon had to be aligned in some weird ways as we had two weeks of pilots who came in and were taking off with their 340 or 421C with partial power. Each of these pilots told us their “SUPER CFI – ONE OF THE TOP
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
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.

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.
Due to Covid and schedule conflicts it took me a while to get down to Burnett, Texas, and do my recurrent training at Aircraft Simulator Training. I’ve been overdue for sim training and I was extremely curious to see if AST would live up to the incredible accolades it has received on our Forum. Here
There have been several aircraft that have had major accidents due to equipment problems. These problems have been electrical components that have gone “outside their regular job functions” and over controlled the aircraft causing a serious accident or accidents. One of the recent problems has involved out of control trim problems. When I was at
We actually own a 340 and a 421C. We have flown these aircraft and taught in these aircraft for years. The picture shows Chuck, one of our premier instructors, flying to the east side of Houston to our other facility. The beginning of the day was all IFR with a 200 ft ceiling and ½
