Instrument Skills Rusty?

Making good decisions in flight starts good training on the ground. If your instrument skills and procedures need some help, take advantage of our full motion flight simulator to get your skills back without burning up time on your aircraft.

Our in-house Redbird flight simulator creates real world flight scenarios in a safe, instructed environment to help you improve your panel scanning technique and perfect your flying skills.

Although there is no substitute for actual flight training, when it makes sense to train in a simulator, we've got you covered!

How Can We Help?

We will design real world and effective aviation training to fit your budget and experience, either at our Indianapolis location or onsite at your facility.
