The new paradigm in flight training.

  • Accelerate Mastery!
  • TakeFlight Interactive has combined the power of games, AI and data analytics, turning your simulator into a Virtual Flight Instructor. This enables pilots to master maneuvers, on their own, before stepping into the cockpit.

    We are creating better pilots, in less time, at greatly reduced costs.

How It Works

TakeFlight's Virtual Flight Instructor provides detailed verbal instructions, real-time feedback, and objective grading of pilot performance. Each lesson in our on-simulator curriculum contains multiple scenarios to ensure you have a thorough understanding of the maneuver.

TakeFlight provides more skill acquisition per hour with repeatable, focused lessons, that are more accessible and cost-effective than training in the aircraft alone. And the approachable, fun and engaging format makes it ideal for aviation education and outreach programs.

  • Brief it
  • All the information you need to get started is right here.
  • Written in an approachable, step-by-step way, anyone can learn to fly.
  • Learn it
  • Like being in the plane with a real instructor, our virtual instructor coaches you through maneuvers, providing instruction and feedback right into your headset.
  • Score it
  • Objective scoring based on FAA ACS standards allows for self-evaluation and shows exactly where you where you need to improve.
  • The ability to practice maneuvers at high-repetition makes for highly effective, safe, and economical training.
  • Repeat it
  • Progress is stored on the cloud, so you can practice at home or at the flight school and pick up where you left off.

Get it!
Whether you're a pilot or aviation enthusiast, we've got you covered...
