Become a better pilot - at home.

Join a community of pilots and flight sim enthusiasts who are dedicated towards continually improving their skills with feedback and support from Certified Flight Instructors.

SimGym is your personal flight sim workout program – designed to continually expand your pilot knowledge, skills, and experience using your home flight sim.

Your membership can help you get the most value of your sim in between one-on-one coaching sessions. It also works as a standalone pilot proficiency program.

Whether you’re a student pilot looking to practice VFR flying for your checkride, a certified pilot looking to stay at peak knowledge and IFR proficiency, or a sim enthusiast who wants to take your skills to the next level of realism, SimGym will help guide you.

Weekly flight missions to fit your busy schedule, curated by our instructor team.

Each week, First Officer-level members will receive a short flight mission based on the principles of scenario-based training. These intense missions (designed to be planned and completed within 60-90 minutes in light GA aircraft) will help push your skills to the next level.

Instead of having to decide where to fly next, let us take care of the work. We give you the mission, including challenging failures and weather conditions to setup – and you act as Pilot in Command (PIC) to complete the flight safely and efficiently. The routes are generally selected to be within PilotEdge ATC coverage areas.

You can either complete these missions solo, or join your fellow SimGym pilots for a weekly fly-in, which will be attended by one of our flight instructors. They will be able to answer your questions as you fly the scenario and provide feedback. This is also a great opportunity to meet and chat with other motivated SimGym pilots as you tackle each mission together.

Unleash your competitive side

All members have the option to take a weekly knowledge quiz covering a variety of topics. They are designed to help you dig deeper into your books – both refreshing old knowledge, and pushing it to the next level. 

They are primarily oriented towards those flying in the United States (using FAA rules/procedures), but pilots from all countries and skill levels will find something of value to learn from them.

The points you earn from taking quizzes and participating in other SimGym activities help you earn free one-on-one remote coaching time with our instructors. See the FAQ below for more details.

Exclusive access to our flight instructors - at a lower cost.

All SimGym members gain access to the instructor team via our private Discord text channel. During the week, you are encouraged to ask us questions about topics related to anything you’re practicing in the simulator, and we will do our best to help you quickly find the answers you need.

First Officer-level members receive a free 1/2 hour of targeted, one-on-one coaching each month on a topic of their choice. This is a great opportunity to answer all of your burning questions or get instructor feedback for a specific maneuver you might be struggling with.

Discounts for 1-on-1 coaching clients

All SimGym members receive a 10% discount on any one-on-one remote coaching sessions purchased during their membership.

SimGym is also an affordable option for those who may not be ready to commit to full one-on-one remote coaching, but would like to work with our instructor team.

SimGym can be used in combination with our standard 1-on-1 remote coaching services, or as a standalone program to support solo simulator practice. The focus of SimGym is primarily on self-study and self-practice, but with a component of instructor support – allowing you to get answers to your questions and feedback.

Due to the short distances of the routes, the weekly flight missions are designed for slower general aviation aircraft (Cessna 172, Piper Warrior, etc.). However, you may use any aircraft type that you would like.
