Our instructors specialize in offering custom coaching (on an hourly basis) to fit your unique needs. However, some common training goals our clients have include:
- Follow an actual flight training syllabus (private pilot, instrument, commercial, etc.) as if you are a real life flight student (at a tiny fraction of the cost of real-world flight lessons)
- Learn how to talk to Air Traffic Control so you can fly on VATSIM, PilotEdge, or IVAO with complete confidence
- Fly with a real-life Boeing 787 pilot and simulate multi-pilot crew operations
- Practice challenging V1 cuts and CAT III approaches as if you were an airline pilot training in a Level D simulator.
- Get help using your latest flight simulator add-ons
- Learn how to takeoff and land at the world’s most challenging airports
We know your situation may be unique. Our specialty is in developing training to meet your specific needs. Simply book a free consult with one of our instructors and they will create a custom plan.

What Our Clients Say
"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."
"I am really excited about being part of Flight Sim Coach. I am just getting back into flying and training after a 10-year hiatus. Flight Sim Coach is a game-changer.
I particularly appreciate Flight Sim Coach because when I flew a decade ago, it was really difficult to become an excellent pilot, because the only way to train was to rent a plane and hire an instructor. The problem that occurred was that it was very difficult and expensive to make that happen on a regular basis- not to mention the weather! The time, weather, and expense made it almost impossible to fly on a consistent basis. So much so, that the flying community said that unless you flew for the airlines or needed to fly for work, it was unrealistic to expect to become a proficient pilot.
Flight Sim Coach changes all that. I am able to have a world-class instructor like Alan Edwards train me in my house and fly on a consistent basis. I cannot tell you how this changes the landscape of being a private pilot. I am very fired up about this and look forward to becoming an excellent pilot. Thanks for starting your company."
“Jesse is a great coach. From the initial consultation he took great steps to understand my pain points and how I was looking to improve. Once we got into the sim, it was great having him being able to expertly and efficiently identify corrections to my flight style. I would recommend Jesse to anyone who is looking to learn or improve their flying!”
"I started flight training for my IR in the summer of 2020. Before getting into the cockpit I did some on line Zoom training with David. My flight training was interrupted by COVID. Then I took a break. Time flies and I realised I had to get going again and as part of that I decided to get a sim set up. I held off as I couldn’t stand the thought of all the fiddling that would be required to find all bits needed and more importantly get them all speaking to one another.
I discussed the set up with David, agreed with him all the bits and bobs needed, then I bought PC, monitors, Xplane, air manager, Reality GTN750, knobster, yoke, pedals, etc. David helped remotely setting it all up. I’m not sure I would have managed on my own. I’d most likely have given up!
Then David and I used it for IR Training via Zoom. Worked a treat. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough for anyone wanting to do the same"
