PART 107 DRONE TRAINING

BECOMING A CIRRUS PILOT

Aviation has come a long way in the last 100 years. However, we believe that no small aircraft embraces the 21st century more than Cirrus. The aircraft

is built to give the pilot more options and information than ever before. As a Cirrus Training Center, Northwest Flight School is able to offer structured

training to get you ready to fly the next generation aircraft.

 

Eligibility

 

Applicants must be able to read, speak, write and understand English and hold a Private Pilot Certificate.

 

CAP: Cirrus Airframe Parachute

 

The most notable feature of Cirrus Aircraft is more than likely what makes it so famous. It is the "plane with the chute". That's right, the aircraft has

a built in parachute that can be deployed in the case of an emergency while in flight. Once deployed, the aircraft glides gently to the ground with the crew and passengers safe inside.

 

Glass Cockpit I Garmin Perspective and Avidyne

 

Glass cockpits are becoming more common in the aviation world. Cirrus Aircraft have

come equipped with both Garmin and Avidyne systems, both giving pilots an amazing advantage while operating the aircraft. From detailed aircraft systems to charts & approach plates to synthetic vision to checklists, never before have pilots been so informed by their own aircraft.

 

Transition Course

 

Since Cirrus Aircraft offer so much more to pilots than most any other aircraft, we require prospective renters to go through a Cirrus Transition course, created by Cirrus Aircraft themselves. This course entails ground and flight time ranging from 8-15 hours, dependent upon the participants aptitude. This course is taught by one of our CSIPs

(Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilots), who have been trained at the Cirrus Aircraft headquarters in Duluth, Minnesota. To learn more about this check out process and how you can fly this next generation aircraft, please contact our office!
