Based in San Diego CA, Honeycomb Aeronautical was founded in 2015 with the sole goal of creating and providing affordable flight simulation hardware.
Honeycomb founder, Nicki Repenning has more than 15 years of experience in developing flight sim equipment for both home use and flight training. He has a detailed understanding of the needs and requirements of both flight simmers as well as pilots and flight students, through his involvement in all facets of the product development process to ensure a realistic flight sim experience.
He is currently in the process of launching The Flight Sim Academy, which is a non-profit initiative to build and operate flight sim centers at GA airports across the United States. The goal is to provide a state of the art educational facilities, free of charge, to high schools and flight schools in the 30 largest metropolitan areas to significantly increase the number of high schools with aviation STEM programs and expose kids to the magic of flying and inspire them to choose an aviation career as well as support them throughout their path to becoming a commercial pilot.
The first two centers are planned for opening in late 2023 at Montgomery Gibbs Executive in San Diego, CA and at Lakeland Linder International in Lakeland, FL.
