About us

The Sim guide

We specialise in training and checking professional pilots in the simulator with our well-trained and highly experienced instructors/examiners.

The storms have passed that we all faced during Covid, the airlines are recruiting again in full force and most pilots have returned to the skies. But now it may be necessary to contact training schools and ATO to assist in keeping former types current, unfreezing ATPL for a job in the Middle East or keeping types current on other state licences such as UK CAA or EASA. Maybe you are looking to become an instructor to fulfil a dream or take on extra freelance work or need to renew or revalidate an instructor or examiner certificate. 

At The Sim Guide, we have teamed together with the best, like minded Instructors, Examiners and Senior Examiners from around UK and Europe to provide training and checks at all levels for EASA and UK licence holders.

Our highest priority is to create a friendly, relaxed, and professional learning environment to enable you to perform at your very best. Let us guide you through the process and provide support throughout and help you to achieve your goals and chosen path.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with David in many roles over the last half-decade.
His flexible approach and innate ability to focus on the student’s needs means he is one of the first people I call.
Simply put, David is one of the very best, regardless of whether it is training, checking or development you are looking for.
There are no airs or graces, no feeling that you are on a mass-production line-this is quality service that leaves a lasting impression that your skillset has been enriched.

First Officer Boeing 737

Over my 15 years’ experience flying jets in Europe and working as a bush pilot abroad, there is one lesson I have learnt. When you find a good instructor and or examiner, NEVER LET GO OF THEM.  There’s not many. David Mather is one of these rare few. He understands the industry, the theory, and more importantly, will understand you, what you want, and what you need. He also has the rare skill of teaching you all of this in YOUR language, not instructor language. He helped me achieve my dream. He will do the same for you. He is easily one of the best.

Fergus Rak

Base Chief Captain

I have known David for 6 years as a colleague and  I can confidently state he is one of the most passionate trainers I have come across in my near 30 years in aviation. Training pilots is his thing. He has all the attributes you would hope for in a trainer but above all, he always has the trainees best interests at heart, imparting confidence and improvement at every encounter.
His professionalism, management and communication skills all contribute to his robust integrity as an examiner.
A highly recommended aviation professional.

737 Video Tutorials


By David Mather SE/TRE/TRI

The 737 SIM Guide was created to help all pilots from cadets to experienced pilots to achieve their very best performance in the simulator time and time again. With the use of free video tutorials on malfunctions from inside the Boeing 737 simulator and step by step guidance to ace recurrent checks, assessments, interviews or just to maintain your skills to the highest standard.

Watch these tutorials on Engine Malfunction on Take off with a step by step guide on how to fly and manage this manoeuvre. This video has been filmed from inside the simulator by experienced instructor/examiners.

Engine Malfunctions are challenging, even though we are likely to have practiced many throughout our careers for each recurrent sim check. With enough practice and repetition through simulator training and reviewing video presentations and study guides will make this demanding manoeuvre look smooth and polished with the confidence of knowing if you faced it for real, you will be able to handle it.

Below is real video footage from the safety of fully certified, full motion simulators with 4k visual displays that makes the manoeuvre and handling as close to the real aircraft as you would like to experience for yourself. This is demonstrated by very experienced pilots/examiners.
