The FAA allows a portion of your flight training to be taught in a flight simulator instead of an airplane. Our AATD is approved for the maximum time allowed:

  • Private Pilot - 2.5 hours
  • Instrument Rating - 20 hours
  • Commercial Rating - 50 hours
  • Airline Transport Rating - 25 hours
  • Instrument Recurrent Training

  Our AATD flight training simulator can be configured for 34 single and twin piston powered airplanes, 7 turboprops and 2 jets, which means that 95% of our students will be able to train in their specific aircraft. AAT flight school offers all levels of flight training from private, commercial, instrument, flight instructor to Airline Transport Pilot.
