Transition Training

The Transition Training Syllabus is intended for pilots who have little to no Cirrus experience or formal Cirrus training. It focuses on basic aircraft control, use of avionics, use of autopilot, and key emergency/abnormal situations in VFR conditions.

Training effectiveness is enhanced through the appropriate use of scenario based training techniques. On average the course takes approximately three days and ten flight hours to complete. Completing the objectives of the Transition Training Syllabus typically satisfies most insurance requirements or aircraft checkout procedures for pilots new to Cirrus aircraft.

Content

  • Aircraft control
  • Use of avionics
  • Use of autopilot
  • Key emergency/abnormal situations in VFR conditions
  • Average 3 days and 10 flight hours

Advanced Transition Training

The Advanced Transition Training Syllabus is designed for instrument rated pilots transitioning into Cirrus aircraft with little to no Cirrus experience or formal Cirrus training.

The Advanced Transition Training Syllabus can be substituted for the Transition Training Syllabus for pilots who wish to gain instrument competency and complete an IPC as a part of their initial training in Cirrus aircraft. The Advanced Syllabus adds approximately two days and six hours beyond the basic Transition Training Syllabus. Pilots desiring to complete this course must be proficient and current instrument rated pilots. Pilots with minimal IFR experience or those who lack recent IFR experience should complete the Transition Training Syllabus, gain Cirrus PIC experience, then complete instrument training and an IPC.

  • For instrument rated pilots
  • For pilots who completed an IPC as part of their initial training in Cirrus aircraft
  • 2 days and 6 flight hours
  • Pilots must be proficient and current instrument rated

 

 

Avionics Differences Training

The Avionics Differences Training is a condensed training course specifically designed for proficient Cirrus pilots who are learning to fly a Cirrus aircraft with a new avionics platform.

This training applies to Cirrus pilots upgrading from traditional to electronic instruments, Avidyne to Perspective or Perspective to Avidyne. Pilots must have extensive and recent Cirrus experience and/or previously completed Cirrus Transition Training. This one-day course focuses on the different skills required to operate the avionics system in a VFR environment. Instrument tasks may be added at the discretion of the instructor considering the Cirrus pilot’s performance and aptitude.

  • Cirrus pilots who are learning to fly a Cirrus aircraft with a new avionics platform
  • 1 day
  • focuses on the different skills required to operate the avionics system in a VFR environment
  • Instrument tasks if applicable

Airframe and Powerplant Differences Training

The Airframe and Powerplant Differences Training is a oneday condensed training course designed for pilots with prior Cirrus aircraft experience and/or formal training.

It is to be used for pilots transitioning from an SR20 to an SR22, an SR22 to an SR20, a normally-aspirated to a turbo engine, or a turbo to a normallyaspirated engine. 

  • 1 day
  • designed for pilots with prior Cirrus aircraft experience and/or formal training
  • transitioning between different Cirrus types
  • instrument tasks if applicable

Recurrent Training

Regular scheduled recurrent training is an important step in maximizing the safe-utility of the aircraft. It provides pilots with an opportunity to perform procedures and maneuvers that help develop and refresh airmanship and judgement skills.

Recurrent training also provides a good opportunity to regain instrument, landing, and flight review currencies. Emphasis is placed on basic stick and rudder skills, aircraft control, systems failures, and instrument currency if applicable.

  • Perform procedures and maneuvers that help devolop and refresh airmanship and judgement skills
  • Regain instrument, landing and flight review currencies
  • ½ day
  • Emphasis is placed on basic stick and rudder skills
  • Aircraft control
  • Systems failures
  • Instrument currency if applicable

Cirrus Airframe Parachute System Training

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. 

The CAPS is designed to lower the aircraft and its passengers to the ground in the event of a life‚Äźthreatening emergency. Possible CAPS activationscenarios should be well thought out and mentally practiced by every Cirrus pilot.  Pilots who conduct CAPS training and practice using CAPS will have a higher probability of activating CAPS successfully when necessary.

  • Review available documentation about your aircraft and it’s safety features and systems (CAPS).
  • Scenario based training with CAPS
  • 1 day
