What Our Clients Say
"During my PPL training, David has been coaching me using a similar set-up in the Sim as in real life. Having a real CFI along with the home simulator sessions has accelerated my learning i.e. handling of G1000, navigating, communicating in a big way. David has also helped me with the set-up of X-Plane and controls. I will continue to work with David along with my instrument rating course."
"As a long-time aviation enthusiast and casual flight simmer, my lack of understanding of flight planning, ATC communications and essential aeronautical knowledge was detracting from my simming experience. Sure, it’s fun to try to land the space shuttle or hand fly the B738 or C172 cross country, but at some point, you may grow bored of flying without purpose.
The worldwide shift to virtual and remote learning made me wonder if anyone was offering any form of online video conferencing for flight simulator instruction. My search led me to flightsimcoach.com and I reached out for more info. Mike responded instantly and we set up a brief videoconference to discuss learning goals and test the screensharing. Two of my goals were to learn to operate the aircraft properly and to learn to fly IFR so that I could fly with on PilotEdge. My first 90 minute session flew by. Mike is a very practical, efficient and patient teacher.
Within a few sessions, I was interpreting ILS approach charts, confidently operating my GPS to navigate IFR routes and practicing my comms with Mike providing me live ATC service. With some assigned homework between sessions and limited independent study, I have a much better understanding of the IFR system and how to follow many of the procedures that real IFR pilots use everyday. With lots and lots of practice, I am now comfortable to communicate with ATC.
I’ve already completed several IFR flights on a simulated ATC network and I am flying with much more confidence. When I run into concepts or procedures that don’t make sense to me, Mike is super helpful with detailed explanations and great references. It is obvious how passionate he is about flight instruction.
If you are an aviation enthusiast like me, remote coaching will make your simming experience much more enjoyable. If you are a future or current student pilot, remote flight coaching with Mike will save you thousands of dollars without having to leave the safety of your home office.
It has been a great experience to learn from Mike. While he has given me the training to get myself up and running, I will be sticking with him to broaden my knowledge and skills moving forward."
"In my first session with Mike, we used a sim flight from KDEN to KASE to go over the subtleties and challenges of flying a SID from a Class B to a challenging mountain airport using the G1000 flight planning and autopilot.
In addition to being a commercial pilot, Mike has an extensive knowledge of X-Plane. I learned a lot of new X-Plane tricks like speeding up the sim to bypass sections of the flight not relevant to the training goals, how to video tape and retrieve your flight with actual instrument readings from each moment of the flight, activating an approach vs. a leg, and the use of VNAV in departures and approaches. We also discussed how to best handle autopilot settings with ATC vectors that deviate from the SID.
Can't say enough about Mike's knowledge and teaching skills. It's like having a CFI on call for simmers, as well as those training for their PPL or Instrument Ratings. His fees are super reasonable. Serious simmers and pilots in training are fortunate to have this resource available!"
"I realized that it would be a great idea to have a real instructor somehow next to me. I found Mike’s website with exactly the services I was looking for - remote flight sim instruction. I have already had three lessons with Mike who is a real world CFI. I would like to say thank you to him and here is why.
Mike is a good coach with a great flying experience. He really works hard and he is a professional at what he does. He provides lots of theory and practice knowledge.
He has built a clear training plan for me based on my requirements, which we follow.
Remote sim training is a rather new service in the market, but Mike has organized the whole process very efficiently."
Of course, there is huge difference between sim and the real plane. However, in sim you can learn how to do the exercises and to do them correctly, you can study and learn most of the in-air procedures, you can correct your mistakes and train your muscle memory.
I would recommend this service to all real-life student pilots. Moreover, this will save you money, believe me.
"A quick note to let you know that Chris is a GREAT partner to have in this coaching enterprise. He was able to take someone that had not been in a real cockpit for over 20 yrs and was only semi-computer literate and get them programming the GL1000 and auto piloting it. The GL1000 is really a very complex device and of course four sessions only touches the surface, but it was well coached and I am able to navigate basic functions on it that result in successful flights."
