Announcing Flight Sim Coach


Remote coaching service launched, allowing flight sim users tolearn from certified flight instructors at home.

Flight Sim Coach LLC is proud to announce the launch of the world'sfirst dedicated online flight simulator coaching platform, connectingdesktop flight simulation users with a wide range of experienced,highly qualified certified flight instructors (CFIs).

The current team of remote coaches consists of five CFIs from theUS, Canada, and Europe who are also expert desktop flight simulationusers. They are all passionate teachers with diverse flyingbackgrounds, with numerous type ratings and internationalexperience.

While remote coaching is no substitute for in-aircraft instructionand does not count as logable hours, real-world student pilots canbenefit from practicing numerous skills in the comfort of their ownhome (particularly navigation and communications), even at night timeor in bad weather. This can leave students feeling far more preparedfor in-person instruction, translating into saved time/money. Forrusty pilots, it is an affordable way to prepare for their next FlightReview or Instrument Proficiency Check.

For flight simulation enthusiasts, the service is a highlyeffective way to accelerate the learning process (compared totraditional methods of watching tutorials and reading online forums) -as well as providing the ultimate realistic learning experience tothose who would otherwise never take flying lessons. Never before hasthe ability existed to schedule a remote instructor on-demand withspecific expertise in the aircraft/add-on a simmer wants to learn.

The service is accessible to simmers with even the most basichardware setups. The remote coaching typically takes place using basicVoIP/screen sharing software, allowing the CFI to see everythingneeded to provide coaching to the client, with no specialized softwareor hardware required. Coaching is available for clients using any typeof flight simulator, including X-Plane, Microsoft Flight Simulator,and Prepar3D.
