How Sessions Operate During COVID-19 

We have reduced the number of available simulators in each flight session to obtain social distancing.   Initial instruction is provided via pre-recorded video.  Use of “finger gloves” is provided when occasional use of the computer keyboard is required.   All stations, flight yokes and throttles are disinfected and idled for 90-minutes before reuse.  We follow a flight instruction model. Our instructors are real pilots and they will show you how to properly control an aircraft, including the all-important landing procedure. 

The Flight Sim Zone is wheelchair accessible.
