Cirrus Specific Courses:

Transition Training Course

The 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.

Instrument Procedures Course

The Cirrus Perspective Instrument Procedures Course is designed as a follow-on to the Transition Training Course. This course is the "next step" in every instrument rated Cirrus pilot's learning path.

The course includes several interactive video lessons that will give you a thorough overview of instrument approach procedures and best practices as they relate to flying your Perspective equipped Cirrus

Cirrus Icing Awareness Course

This online course will prepare you for the challenges of flying into known icing conditions (FIKI). The course provides an overview of the TKS anti-ice system, proper operating procedures, and 3 scenarios that follow flights into various types of icing conditions.

This training course will satisfy the following POH Limitation for the Known Icing System:

Pilot Qualification and Training
The pilot-in-command must successfully complete the Cirrus Icing Awareness Course or a Cirrus Design approved equivalent training course, within the preceding 24 months prior to Flight Into Forecast or Known Icing Conditions.

Landing Standardization Course

This short course will focus on improving the skills required to perform successful and safe approaches and landings. This training is considered ‘no jeopardy’, meaning it is not pass or fail but an opportunity to develop and hone landing skills. An estimated 1. 0 – 1. 5 flight hours will be required for completion of this syllabus.

Recurrent Training – 4 different courses

CAPS Course - The Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) is an integral part of any Cirrus. Before operating a Cirrus Aircraft, the pilot should receive CAPS specific training. A Cirrus Pilot should review CAPS deployment procedures and scenarios on a yearly basis by completing this course.

90 Day Refresher Course - Complete this course 90 days after transition training to review and fine tune the skills learned during transition training.

IFR Recurrent Training Course (Schedule A) - A Cirrus Pilot should complete recurrent training every six months. This course will increase your proficiency and comfort level when operating your Cirrus Aircraft in the IFR environment. This course should be alternated every six months with the Perspective VFR Recurrent Training Course.

VFR Recurrent Training Course (Schedule B) - Cirrus Pilots should complete recurrent training every six months. This VFR course will review VFR and Cirrus Aircraft Parachute System (CAPS) operations. If qualified, this course should be alternated every six months with the Perspective IFR Recurrent Training Course.
