Simulator (EN)

What if you could train every day

Take action and take big steps forward towards your goal

Are you also tired of depending on the weather to work out? Not being able to fly for long periods of time and then when the weather is good it all gets a bit tricky… By practising consistencies and sharpening your practical skills, from now on this will be a thing of the past and soon you will step into the cockpit full of enthusiasm every time.

Let’s do this

Mastering the art of flying

I’d be happy to help you achieve it!

Take the steps necessary.

And have fun along the way.

Thanks to this membership approach to the simulator, you will have access to a powerful training tool and get the support to take those steps that are needed as well. We will look for that next level, for building out your pilot project, tailored to you.

Accessible training tools for aviators!

With unlimited access to the simulator, you have the necessary tools available to take steps to boost your skills. That way, you can fall back on that on the plane and there is time and space to enjoy yourself there.


An online learning platform where you can find exercises for inspiration, an emergency of the month for targeted training, a collection of all pilot jump seats and demo videos to set up the simulator to your own training goals: different location, meteorological settings, failures and much more..


During the process, I check in with you regularly so you know clearly where you stand and what steps you still need to take to achieve your goals. A place to go to ask questions and exchange ideas with like-minded aviators.

Every 2 months there is a coaching moment where you get my exclusive attention and enthusiasm at the hub in Rupelmonde. I provide answers to your questions and explanations on techniques of flying as well as setup of the simulator.

I am Anneleen Smits, passionate pilot, instructor, examiner, and founder of In the Air.

I absolutely love flying. Just thinking of flying, the view, and the technicality of the aircraft makes me smile; it’s an amazing feeling.

I dreamed of becoming a pilot when I was a child. My first flying experience as a 15-year-old cadet with the Royal Belgian Air Cadets was incredible. Professionally, I have continued to work to expand and improve my skills and abilities as a pilot.

–> years of experience in coaching pilots
–> hundreds of tips and tricks already given to pilots to improve their skills
–> various coaching courses taken both in and outside the field of aviation

Exploring your potential and improving your skills contribute to MASTERING THE ART OF FLYING, which I am thrilled to help you achieve.

If so, you’re in the right place. I have created a place for you to turn to for clarity, simplicity and focus.
Fun, along with confidence in your knowledge and skills, are the basics.
You start discovering what you need to do, why you need to do it, and that gives you overview and control.
You are going to see and notice it in every cell of your body.

How are we going to do that consistent training? For a fixed monthly fee, you can come to Rupelmonde for unlimited practice. There is a library, a video library of exercises you can perform on the full-size cockpit SEP simulator. The simulator has Garmin 1000 as glass cockpit, intercom system to also do communication exercises and a 180° visual to do your VFR manoeuvres and navigations. You can control the meteorological conditions yourself so you can practise VFR and IFR flights and quietly build up to set ceiling lower, or add more wind. Thanks to the global database, you can choose to train on your own homebase or maybe you want to try that special approach in Greenland or dream away at an exotic landscape, it’s all possible.

All this for €1800 a year or €180/month.
