Flying might seem complicated and overwhelming, that's because it is! However, we have many members in our division who can fly and simulate the same style of flying the airliners use and have never flown a real airplane before. How is that possible? Thanks to our pilot training program at our division, we offer step by step training from the basics to the most advanced topics.


Air Traffic Controllers provide separation of aircraft in the skies, guide them to their destination, to and from airports, and manage aerodromes. Ever hear the phrase "cleared for takeoff"? How would you like to learn what that actually means? How would you like to say that to another person who's flying on their computer somewhere in the world and provide the most realistic air traffic control service there is?
