    “I am very pleased with what Nick was able to do to get me ready to use MSFS for my instrument training. There was a lot to do to prep my sim and he was quick and very knowledgeable on how to accomplish everything. He went down the checklist I sent and made certain we covered it all. Looking forward to starting the training with him. Highly recommend him and the company. “

    “Nick was GREAT! He accomplished what Microsoft and the Geek Squad were unable to (Software Installed and working). He also configured system settings as well as yoke and quadrant… I will definitely be booking future sessions with you to continue learning the many skills required to make this a realistic, enjoyable, and rewarding hobby. Thanks again.”

    “I learned that there are ways to correct the set up parameters to make the sim respond properly to the many inputs necessary to “fly” the aircraft. And Patrick was extremely experienced, both with the computer and real flying, and was patient and helpful by pointing out where to change the set up of the program.”

    “Loved it. My sim coach was very patient with me.

    This saved me weeks of playing around to set up the sim for training mode, not playing mode.

    Very experienced sim coach. Was able to guide me through correct settings of the hardware attached.

    Now its getting a lot easier every time I log back in.

    It really helps a lot to train on the maneuvers in between the actual flight classes. No time wasted in the air.”

    “David was very personable and knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoyed the call and am very pleased with his creation of a new Air Manager panel for me. Very worthwhile and efficient use of time. I would have taken many days to even come close to figuring out what he did for me in 90 minutes, which includes explaining what he was doing and how he was doing it. Everything from choosing an instructor, to scheduling the call, to using Zoom was very easy. Glad I found this service.”

    “Since this was my first time trying the service, I did not really know what to expect. Patrick was a great coach, and made the time spent enjoyable and educational. It was like talking to a friend that was not only a pilot, instructor, and tech expert, but also an enthusiast that is excited about sims, planes, and flying. As a private pilot who is just now getting into simulators to enhance my own training, I found the time and effort to sign up for session to be an excellent investment, and I look forward to another session with Patrick soon. If anything, the experience was better than I could have reasonably expected!”

    “I had the privilege of receiving flight instruction from David Chambers of Flight Sim Coach, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. David possesses a deep and comprehensive understanding of aircraft flying, especially regarding the G1000 and now the G5 avionics. His grasp of the subject matter is evident, and he is adept at conveying this knowledge in a way that is both insightful and easy to understand.

    In addition to learning the intricacies of these avionics, David shared invaluable tips and tricks, enhancing my flying experience and bolstering my confidence in the cockpit. More recently, I called upon his expertise to assist me in configuring 2 x G5 avionics in my Cessna 172 panel. This is the aircraft I plan to use for my upcoming check ride, and David’s assistance was instrumental in ensuring that the panel customization was carried out seamlessly.

    His proficiency in configuring this equipment is truly commendable. Not only is David a skilled flight instructor, but he also excels in customizing flight panels, making him an invaluable resource for any pilot or aspiring aviator.

    To anyone looking to gain insights into flying, customize their aircraft panels, or even seek top-tier flight training, I wholeheartedly recommend David Chambers. Thank you, David, for your impeccable service and unwavering dedication to excellence in aviation.”

    “I have been so frustrated trying to set up peripherals and settings for MSFS 20 and I was about to stop using MSFS 20! However, in an hour Ben had resolved my issues and I was able to take off, fly and land single eng., single complex, twin and Citation jet !!! Ben gave me many helpful tips and resources for Sectional and IFR charts and a 1 page list of keyboard shortcuts. I highly recommend the process established by FlightsimCoach. It is well organized, staffed with highly qualified professionals well versed in Flight Sim technology. I will definitely use Ben again off additional assistance and training as needed.”

    “Ben was amazing. Although my iMac has limitations which prevent 100% performance with X-Plane, he found a method to give me the best results possible. I will be scheduling another appointment with Ben in the next few weeks to answer any questions which arise as I continue to use the X-Plane program and my Honeycomb hardware. I couldn’t have been more pleased.”

    “WELL WORTH THE MONEY. After a brief conversation with Ben, I felt he knew exactly what I was trying to accomplish. I spent over 7 hours trying to get my system right, to no avail. Within 30 minutes, Ben had my system up and running better than I expected. Ben knew I was an actual student pilot on a Cessna 172. He configured the controls to work just as a 172 would. I don’t know how often I said “Wow!” when Ben showed me new items.”
