Transition Training (VFR Emphasis) – 3 Days est. + Kit Cost = Package Price

The three day Cirrus Transition course is designed for licensed pilots who wish to fly a Cirrus aircraft. The course focuses on mastering aircraft control, engine management, use of avionics, use of autopilot, and important emergency/abnormal situations in VFR conditions. Completing the Transition Training course satisfies most insurance requirements or aircraft checkout procedures for pilots new to Cirrus aircraft. This package includes 3 days of one-on-one CSIP instruction, an aircraft / avionics specific pilot training kit (cost of kit is dependent on avionic/aircraft type). Please specify aircraft to be used at the time of scheduling.

Perspective / Perspective + Training Kit – $250

Avidyne Training Kit – $200

 

Advanced Transition Training (IFR Emphasis) – 5 Days est. + Kit Cost = Package Price

Maximize the aircraft’s utility by completing the Advanced Transition Training course. The advanced version of the Transition Training course develops your proficiency in the IFR environment and culminates with an instrument proficiency check. This package includes an aircraft / avionics specific pilot training kit, (cost of kit is dependent on avionic/aircraft type) 5 days with a CSIP Flight Instructor.

Perspective / Perspective + Training Kit – $250

Avidyne Training Kit – $200

 

Panel Technology Training – 1 Day est.

The Panel Technology course, is designed to focus on the technology associated with your aircraft panel and understanding the integration  tools such as Jeppesen, Garmin, and tablets (iPads and Android ). Course is applicable for new Cirrus pilots that want to understand how to perform ongoing updates for their panels as well as how to troubleshoot for issues relating to panels and database updates. This class requires the participant have their own airplane or schedule to use aircraft available for update.

Perspective Upgrade Training (VFR Emphasis) – 1 Day est.

The Perspective Upgrade course, designed for experienced Cirrus pilots upgrading into Cirrus Perspective, focuses on the skills and knowledge to operate the Cirrus Perspective avionics suite and upgraded electrical system. Rehearse basic programming tasks using the avionics procedure trainer and simulator before mastering tasks in the aircraft. The focal points of the course are VFR flight planning, communication control, PFD setup and controls, MFD page navigation and controls, autopilot usage, reversionary mode control. This package includes an avionics specific training kit, 1 day with a Factory Instructor, and 1 hour in an airplane.

 

Advanced Perspective Upgrade (IFR Emphasis)

The Advanced Perspective Upgrade course focuses heavily on instrument procedures in Cirrus aircraft with Perspective avionics. The course is designed for pilots that have prior Cirrus experience and desire to become instrument proficient at the conclusion of training while learning the intricacies of the Cirrus Perspective avionics system. The course concludes with an instrument proficiency check and you will enjoy the benefits of being able to maximize the aircraft’s utility right after training. This package includes 3 days with a Factory Instructor, an avionics specific training kit, and 3 hours in the flight training device.

 

Airframe / Power Plant Upgrade

The Airframe / Power Plant Upgrade course is a great course for Cirrus pilots upgrading into a Turbo or Turbo-normalized Cirrus. Learn need-to-know engine management techniques that are critical for engine longevity and the ins and outs of high altitude flight planning, use of supplemental oxygen, high altitude weather, physiological concerns, and emergency procedures. The package includes an aircraft and avionics specific training kit and 1 day with a Factory Instructor.

Airmanship Refresher

Many general aviation accidents occur during the landing phase of flight. These accidents are typically the result of poor airmanship or aircraft control capabilities, which may degrade over time or periods of inactivity. Complete the Airmanship Refresher course if you are interested in honing your aircraft control skills. Completing the takeoff and landing challenge along with the slow flight and stall series will boost your confidence and expand your pilot capabilities. Rehearse emergency procedures in the flight training device and know that you will be better prepared to handle situations that can arise in flight.

90 Day Skill Refresher – .5 Days est.

Rehearse emergency procedures in the flight training device and know that you will be better prepared to handle situations that can arise in flight.

 

IFR Refresher

Real-life IMC approaches actually occur surprisingly infrequently, as does holding, circling approaches, or missed approaches. IFR pilots are strongly encouraged to complete the IFR Refresher course to help remove some rust but also to build confidence and increase aircraft utility. Pilots wishing to get back into IFR flying or looking to expand their IFR capabilities will find this course both challenging and rewarding.

 

Partner In Command – .5 Day est.

This half-day training will teach non-pilot partner how to manage a situation in which their pilot has become incapacitated. We will teach the ins and outs of the CAPS system and basic understanding of the autopilot and communications systems.

 

Biennial Flight Review (BFR) – .5 Day est.

 

Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) – .5 Day est.
