What Pilots Have to Say About our Instructors
“Hey Bert, I had my first 2 sims today. I crushed them both. My flying is great. My scan is way better than when I first met up with you. I’m feeling very confident. Thank you for all your help. It prepared me for this. KaiserAir is very happy with my progress.”– Austin
“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.”
It was pretty darned convincing like an airplane. A+
Steve is the best, he has a totally positive attitude.
“They told me the sim was more difficult but when I got in the plane it would be easier. Boy were they right.”
Thank you for all your help yesterday. Training, advice etc. SO helpful yet so much to learn. Only regret I have is that I only had a one day to spend time with you. I am rewriting my notes so that I can remember as much as you taught me.
“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 They either have outdated, malfunctioning simulators, and/or low time instructors that have little or no experience in piston twins. Hands down Aircraft Simulator Training has the best equipment, and by far the best training for those of us with piston twins. Their motion simulator is state of the art. Their instructors have thousands of hours of real world experience. I can say without question, working with these folks gave me the best general aviation training experience in over 8,000 hours of flying. I can unequivocally recommend them to anyone.”Jon Gibson Commercial Real Estate Developer
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
