Training Simulators

San Carlos Flight Center is proud to have four simulators in our office to aid you in your flight training journey. We utilize the X-Wind 200 simulator in our private pilot training program, as it is proven to help pilots master proper control inputs when landing in a crosswind. Instrument students will find themselves using either the Garmin G1000 or Garmin 430 simulator quite frequently in training, due to the simulator’s special ability to pause and review certain procedures. Both of these simulators are also FAA-approved to log time towards a rating. Whether you are a student pilot starting out on the flight training journey, or a high-time instrument pilot looking to refresh their instrument currency, our simulators are ready to help you succeed.

SCFC renting members may be checked out in our simulators for individual use.
