Flight Sim Enthusiast

“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.

  1. 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.
  2. He has built a clear training plan for me based on my requirements, which we follow.
  3. 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.”
