If you are an independent Certified Flight Instructor (CFI), you have to find your own training resources. There is no big flight school providing you with classrooms, multi-media equipment, airplanes, or flight simulators. Aerial Engagement can provide you with everything but the airplane!

Are You A Pilot?

We built this place specifically for independent flight instructors!

Ground School

We have two classrooms – one for up to eight people, another that can accommodate 20. Each has white boards, projection screens, and connections for your Ipad or laptop. With our WIFI connection, you can tap into any internet resource you desire. Best of all, we don’t charge for our classroom resources, whether you are teaching a class or simply debriefing after a simulator session one-on-one. Call ahead to be sure the rooms are available.

Leveraging Technology to Build Your Business

Flight simulators have moved from the dusty corners of flight training programs to center stage. The fidelity of our simulators meets the FAA standards of an Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD). Configured with real cockpit seating and bright, high-resolution monitors, these are serious training tools. In fact, in many cases the time spent by your students can be logged toward FAA flight time requirements. See this FAA letter for details.

We aren’t suggesting that a simulator will replace flights in the air. On the other hand, combining loggable ground flying with training flights in the air has proven a great way to create an effective training environment, while minimizing knowledge decay.

For example, let’s say you work on steep turns on a Saturday morning, but you won’t be able to meet with your student for another week. She can come to Aerial Engagement between flights to practice without your presence. How could that have an impact on the next in-air training session?

When it comes to loggable instrument training, imagine teaching IFR on a glass cockpit in a cool, safe studio, instead of trying to avoid collisions with others in the Stanfield Stack. Here, you can shoot any ILS in the world in total safety!

What People Are Saying

See For Yourself

Maximize Your Income While Minimizing Your Students’ Costs

The cost equation is more compelling evidence for that flight simulators have a place in your training regimen. At last check, a wet airplane was running $165 an hour. How much actual training time do you get with your student for that hour, after taxiing, run up, take off, and transit to the training area? Can you accomplish one hour of training for two hours of HOBBS? How does that compare to one hour of training on a simulator?

Airplane Rental Costs

Rent Airplane for Two Hours - $320 Time Spent Practicing Assigned Tasks – ONE hour So, is the actual cost to the student really $320 per hour of Training (plus CFI)?

Simulator Costs

Rent Simulator for One Hour - $80 Time Spent Practicing Assigned Tasks – ONE hour The actual cost to the student is $80 per hour plus CFI.

See How Much You Can Save

$80 per hour < $320 per hour!

Rent a simulator for 20 hours to teach IFR – $1,600 vs $6,400 in a rented plane.

Your IFR Student Saves $4,800!
