Putting Decades of Experience to Work for You

As a commercial pilot with multi-engine and instrument ratings, Flight1 Tech President Jim Rhoads saw the value of simulation during his own flight training in the early 1990s. In 2004, Flight1 Aviation Technologies was launched to focus on delivering software and hardware based flight simulation training solutions to aviation customers.

We’ve always been committed to the idea that no two training programs, or two students, are alike. From the beginning, our goal has been to provide our customers with a toolbox of flexible training tools they can combine in different ways to meet their unique needs and goals.

In recent years, we've shifted our focus from creating consumer software, to creating turn-key simulators designed for flight schools and universities. Our Cirrus SR20/SR22/SR22T and Piper PA-28 Enterprise G1000 Simulators are FAA approved Aviation Training Devices (AATDs) that pilots can use to log time toward the instrument rating, and to maintain proficiency. Other aircraft are in development.

Today, we offer you everything you need to add highly immersive—and FAA Approved—simulation to your flight training program.
