Cirrus training is the best way to learn how to fly Cirrus aircraft, the safest and most technologically advanced aircraft, for your personal aviation training and needs. Here are a few typical courses licensed pilots may experience during their Cirrus flight training at a fine flight school.

  • Transition Training
    Designed for licensed pilots, the transition training focuses on mastering aircraft control, engine management, use of avionics, use of autopilot, and important emergency/abnormal situations in VFR conditions. All things you will need to satisfy most checkout procedures and insurance requirements.
  • Instruments Procedures Course
    This course is the next step after Transition Training and natural progression for every instrument-rated Cirrus pilot. It includes interactive video lessons for best practices and instrument approach procedures.
  • Cirrus Icing Awareness Course
    This is an online course to prepare you to fly Cirrus aircraft into known icing conditions.
  • Landing Standardization Course
    A short course for perfecting safe and successful approaches and landings. This course has no pass or fail metrics; rather, it is a time-based (1 to 1.5 flight hours) course to hone your skills.
  • Avionics Differences Training
    This course is for Cirrus pilots transitioning to a different avionics package offered by flight schools.
  • Airframe & Powerplant Differences Training
    This is a course designed to build on your Cirrus-specific knowledge and experiences acquired while focusing on:
    • Operational differences between powerplants and airframes
    • High-altitude flight
    • Engine management
    • Developing aircraft systems knowledge
    • Managing a higher performance aircraft
    • Landing and maneuvering
  • Recurrent Training
    Recurrent training is there for pilots to fine-tune their learned skills, refresh their flight training and keep them up to date with flight training. Recurrent training includes:
    • Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) Course
    • 90 Day Refresher Course
    • IFR Recurrent Training Course (Schedule A)
    • VFR Recurrent Training Course (Schedule B)

These flight trainings, online and short courses are all part of your comprehensive progression as a Cirrus pilot. If you want to learn how to fly Cirrus aircrafts from the best, then Elevate Aviation in Utah is the best place for you.
