Train With Our State Of The Art Simulators

The pilot life is a learning journey. Your private pilot certificate starts you down the path, but it is only with experience and training that you advance on the road to proficiency and improvement. For the general aviation piston-engine pilot, the road leads through Aerial Engagement!

This is the place for professional instructors and proficient pilots!

See For Yourself

Very Convenient

You don't have to call around to find a plane to rent during a time that suits you. Just log into Flight Circle, our booking tool, pick your flight simulator time block. We often can accommodate same-day reservations. Check-in upon arrival takes less than five minutes. Without the need to do a walk-around, run up, taxi and transit to the practice area, you can begin training immediately.

Control Flight Conditions

Here, you can easily recreate almost any weather or mechanical condition you desire. In a metro area that has 300 sunny days a year, IFR conditions can be rare. At Aerial Engagement, you can fly in "0-0" conditions anytime you want, and you never have to wear foggles! Want to practice sudden loss of power, instrument failure or experience a bird strike? You can do all of that, and more!

Save Money

If you are going to become a pilot, you must put the hours in behind the yoke in the air. But there is a lot you can do, and receive log credit for, in a simulator for a fraction of the cost. See below!

Save Time

If you are pressed for time, a flight simulator gives you the most training in the shortest possible time period. In an hour, an pilot ofen is able to shoot and log six approches at Aerial Engagement for IFR currency.
Total cost: less than $80!

Very Accessible

Aerial Engagement is located across the street (to the east) from the runway at Scottsdale Airport, KSDL. Park at our door and you are inside our modern, air-conditioned space in mere minutes.

Seneca , Seminole or Baron Multi-Engine Simulator

Original Garmin GNXi Cockpit
Like our Cessna 172S simulator, the multi-engine simulator also has the real Garmin glass cockpit. The seat has adjustable armrests and can be adjusted backward and forward. This stands out from simulator providers who offer only an office chair. The same three-screen high resolution display is installed and you can have your pick of throttle quadrants. All of it comes together to give you the most realistic experience possible on the ground!

X-Plane Software is the heart of our simulators. With our software, you get an ultra-realistic flying experience because you will feel like the plane is actually in the air, thanks to the scenery the software provides. Every little detail, including the effects, flight conditions, and sounds, approximates what you see and feel in the air.


Glider Simulator

Arizona is a popular location for glider enthusiasts. Our 300 days of sunny, warm weather often creates wonderful conditions for soaring. We support the local glider community with our three professional glider simulators. We can model several different airframes in our 200 degree wrap around dome, a smaller curved screen version, or with Virtual Reality goggles. 

Both winch tow and aero tow scenarios can be created and flown.
