Transform your Flight Simulator into a Serious Tool for Pilot Training and Proficiency.

Instructor Operator Station (IOS) software for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Prepar3D and X-Plane.

Full array of features that provide full situational awareness and external flight sim control.

What is Instructor Station™ ?

In flight simulation, an Instructor Operator Station (IOS) is designed to assist the instructor in controlling the simulation training environment and monitoring all aspects of pilot/crew performance in the simulator. The instructor can control, via this software, all functions such as aircraft position and systems, meteorological, environmental, and situational parameters.

The Instructor Station™ is meant to assist Aviation Professionals, Flight Simulation Enthusiasts and Home Cockpit Builders.

Compatible with :

  • Lockheed Martin Prepar3D® 1.x, 2.x, 3.x, 4.x and 5.x
  • Microsoft® Flight Simulator (FS) 2004™, FSX™, ESP™, FSX-SE™ and 2020™
  • X-Plane®

The Instructor Station™ allows setting the aircraft on an approach to a runway of choice under any weather conditions, start-up and shutdown network computers (fully customizable), program or set aircraft system failures at any moment, calculate the amount of fuel required for a flight and load it to the aircraft, record flight performance (approaches, manoeuvres, landings, take-offs, etc.) and plot it graphically, and many other things!

Compatible with all types of aircraft! It is also a great tool for anybody who wants to control the flight simulator externally.

PC-based flight simulation software has been popular since the introduction of Microsoft Flight Simulator in the early 1980s, and as soon as such software appeared, pilots and instructors started arguing about if and how they should be used in formal flight training.

Today, the benefit of flight simulators in flight training is rarely of dispute - for many years already, flight schools, flight instructors, and pilots have been using Microsoft’s Flight Simulator software and others to train and stay proficient (including FlightSafety International, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and the U.S. Navy).

In 2008, Microsoft, recognizing Flight Simulator’s potential as a training aid, released Microsoft ESP. ESP provided commercial, government, and educational organizations with a robust simulation platform on which to build custom training solutions.

In 2008, my cockpit-building hobby led me to search a program that would allow interaction with Flight Simulator. After weeks of research, I could not find any commercially available program that would cater my needs, and so... I wrote one.

The Instructor Station™, as conceived, would enable practicing approaches, changing weather and inject failures to practice procedures, along with managing the simulator itself (networked PCs, etc.). Little did I know when I started writing back then that it would evolve into something used by flight schools in formal pilot training, as part of FAA-approved certified aviation training devices.

The Instructor Station™ can be used as part of an FAA approved training device that students can log hours in (when under the supervision of a certified instructor). The Instructor Station and the simulation can be run on two separate computers over a network, or on the same machine.

No matter what your specific needs or situation is, one thing’s for sure: the Instructor Station™ will revolutionize the way you use your flight simulator product, whether for business or leisure.

What People Are Saying

Instructor Station™ has proven to be very successful among the Aviation, PC Flight Simulation and Cockpit Building communities. Thousands of aviation professionals and enthusiasts are using the Instructor Station all throughout the world.

Present in 70+ countries, and more than 8+ years of continued development and support !

" We use Intstructor Station from Luis Gordo and vasFMC and it seems most functions of the pit are covered.
I recon this is a good and more or less complete setup. If you don't want to spend a lot of money on the instructor station this could be one way to go.... "

" I just purchased Instructor Station by Luis Gordo. Its priced really cheap for what it does! You can run it in demo mode for 3 minutes to test. [...] It’ll work with project magenta, over a network, and packs a lot of stuff for the price! Check it out! "

" I installed your Instructor Station on a networked PC and I like it very much. Every few months I visit full-flight simulators of LUFTHANSA flight training in Frankfurt, and the instructor stations of these simulators are very similar..."
T.R. (Germany)

" Your program is excellent; I am a commercial airline pilot. I fly the ATR 42/72 for Farnair Europe. "

" Exemplary support and Great Product! "

" I bought this software two weeks ago, and have had some time to play with it. And in my opinion it is worth every penny. This is the best deal out there to get a functional instructor station for very reasonable money. I have not tried some of the more advanced functions yet, but so far I am very happy with this program. "
I.H. (Norway)

" Your software is very good! It is a real alternative to Project Magenta's instructor station! "

" Wonderful and affordable flight instructor station software. "

" I purchased the 2.0 upgrade and it looks so much better and finally happy to see US lbs included. What I like the most is how I can input the weights directly into the FS Stations through IS. Previously, I was doing this by using the FSX menu line>Aircraft>Fuel and Payload screens, via the curved took forever."
J.C. (USA)

G.A. (USA)

“ For anyone thinking of putting together a cockipt or for those who already have one, a vital program is the Instructor Station, with it you can perform many tasks without having to access the menus of the FS, put fuel, train approaches, simulate faults and etc ... Luis Gordo did an excellent job with this software that originally was created for his own cockipt that is an A320. In addition to the excellent quality of the software what also stands out is the price !! The same software only the Project Magenta you will pay the small sum of 800 euros !! Already Luis software costs only 39.50 euros !! What difference huh? ” (Brazil)

Customer Reviews
Oslo belongs to one of their best airports! Pricy but worth every euro!
Joern Ove
All in all very detailed, although it hits performance a bit. Also some wrong scaling on buildings. The tower for instance looks way too short compared to real life. No airport interiors, which I hope will come with future updates.
It's well detailed and flies well, the developer's care is unmatched, for anyone who loves the golden age of aviation it's a great representation!
Mahesa Ihzarul
it was a good addon, but maybe you could add COLD AND DARK state inside this aircraft
I think its amazing! Finally came out! Very Nice Job with the airport .
Very well modelled and detailed aircraft. my only issue is the start up sound (on my end at least) plays the same sound clip twice and its very noticeable. the rest of the plane is absolutely lovely!
This developer doesn’t pull any punches! I always enjoy there work and own 6 so far. I think this is one of their biggest scenery areas? Whatever the case it’s huge! Several airports in the vicinity of Moscow and an amazing amount of unique autogen for a great many locations of interest. It’s a helicopter pilots dream. They even have Putin at the Red Square heliport where I find it to be an entertaining place to visit him with a heavily armed Apache Longbow. Also included is a challenging mission to land a Cessna at Red Square. Really nice night textures and lighting. Pretty good winter textures as well. So much to explore and discover. Based on use with i7 3.3ghz 16GB Ram Intel UHD630 integrated GPU, settings at high to very high no loss of frames. Very smooth!
Another amazing and large scenery By Drzewieki! There is nothing to complain about here. You get a large area to explore and enjoy. So much amazing detail especially in the historic old town. Very easy on the frame rates. The flight museum is a fun place to see. There is a runway nearby the museum that is a nice challenge thanks to power lines right at one end. Not quite as large an area as Seattle or Warsaw but still a sizable plot. Definitely makes for some very nice short flights between krakow and Warsaw. Based on use with i7 3.3ghz 16GB Ram Intel UHD630 integrated GPU. High to very high graphics settings.
This scenario is very real, I like the details it has outside the airport, as well as the price it helps a lot. THANKS!! -
wow wow wow, just stunning loads of different animations like tugboats pulling ferries, anima-
ted oil rig workers it's all there true to life. i bought this from aerosoft site you wont be disappointed.
