What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Day About Us:

Julian was My flight instructor. I can not emphasize enough his level of expertise, professionalism and class. If anyone is lucky enough to do business with Julian you’ll find it a pleasure. I trust Julian with my life. Come to think of it I have. Many times. Easily 5 Stars plus.

Maintaining proficiency not just currency should be the goal of any instrument rated pilot. Julián and his team provide one of the most time efficient ways to do so for Manhattan residents. The use of multiple situations across the country and in different flight conditions combined with Pilot Edge that creates live ATC interaction, is highly effective. Add Julian’s enthusiasm and knowledge transmission from his day job as United Express pilot and you have training that can’t be beat for any private pilot. I really recommend this training for any pilot looking to materially improve safety margins in their day to day live flying.

JD Aero is very accommodating when it comes to working around your schedule. The training is top notch, I find using the simulator for IFR currency is a great way to stay sharp while staying away from real danger. I strongly suggest giving JD Aero a try!

Aaron D. 

Training with Julian was very valuable. Much more efficient to practice IFR work in the sim rather than the airplane. Julian could pause the approaches to point out issues, recommend corrections, then I would go back to re-do just those phases that were giving me trouble. Unlike many instructors, Julian is an experienced, active airline pilot. I learned a lot from his real world experience!

How Are We Different?

For the growing community of aspiring or practicing pilots in Manhattan, gaining and maintaining proficiency as a pilot costs more time and and money than it needs to. Traveling to and from airports hours away, only to work with a temporary instructor or learn skills that can easily be mastered in an aviation simulator is no longer the standard, thanks to JD Aero.

At JD Aero, we bring state-of-the-art simulator and aviation training to downtown Manhattan. Our team of instructors are industry-leading FAA certified, ATP rated pilots who have logged more than 1,000 hours of instructing and over 2,000 hours of total flight time.

Our skill is only matched by our passion for the art of flying, which means that as a member, you get to fly alongside and learn from pilots who are completely invested in helping you reach your goals as a pilot.

When it comes to flying, don’t compromise when it comes to your training.
