I am a US-based FAA-certified flight instructor with over 30 years of experience in general aviation airplanes, gliders, and simulators.
The value of flight simulation can be measured in many ways, either through the personal joy you get as just a hobbyist or the satisfaction you get through the transfer of a process into a real-world situation.
I enjoy being a part of the coaching outcome, as most educators should. Whether it’s just simulating a takeoff and landing or practicing the intricate dance between ATC, you, an approach flown to minimums with a G1000 avionics suite, and an EFB, I enjoy being a part of the outcome as much as the pilot in training!
Through simulation, we can better control your desired outcome and have fun at the same time.
Online via Zoom.
You do not need your own flight simulator to participate in the event. Your instructor will be screen sharing his simulator for you to watch (though you are welcome to follow along on your own simulator, if you have one). Use of webcam optional.
This session is considered supplementary coaching only. It is not loggable, nor is it a substitute for in-person, real-world instruction.
Our company (Flight Sim Coach LLC) also offers one-on-one remote coaching services by certified flight instructors. For more information, visit flightsimcoach.com.
