Benefits to Flight Simulation

Whether you are a high school student or teacher, or you are a certified pilot looking to enhance your training, the aptitude required to operate a flight simulator are similar to life and college-going skills.

01

Critical Thinking

Aviators require self-management, also referred to as “Single-Pilot Resource Management (SRM)”.  Our curriculum presents students with unique problem-solving scenarios that require exercising critical thinking and time management in the simulator.  Students will recognize the impact of their actions by successfully completing missions or handling urgent or emergency situations.

02

Communication

Operating two-way radios is inevitable in aviation.  Our curriculum not only teaches students radio etiquette, but we develop effective communication skills that will help students navigate real-world social interactions such as job interviews, school or professional oral presentations, or even participating in class discussions.

03

Stress Management

The flight deck is a busy space with pilots rapidly making a lot of important decisions.  The flight simulator provides a comfortable space to learn and to cope with higher levels of stress.  Prior to beginning flights, aviators evaluate themselves with an “IMSAFE” checklist.  Students learn to recognize hazardous attitudes within themselves and using antidotes to neutralize them.

04

Mitigate Risk

Recreate adverse weather and emergency procedures from the safety of a dry, air-conditioned room on the ground.  The flight simulator has a “PAUSE button” that the airplane does not provide.
