Cirrus Transition Training

Interested in flying one of the most advanced aircraft available in general aviation?  Basic transition training gets you familiar with Cirrus operations and procedures to fly safely in VFR conditions.  Advanced transition training also includes instrument procedures for IFR flying.

When requested, these courses can also be incorporated into a Flight Review and/or Instrument Proficiency Check.

Cirrus Recurrent Training

When you received training in your new Cirrus it was likely a huge amount of information and flying.  Now that you have some time under your belt and starting to feel comfortable it’s time to take your proficiency to the next level.  Our recurrent training is tailored to each individual’s needs to focus on making the most use out of your aircraft with emphasis on task management, automation management and aeronautical decision making.

Cirrus Differences Training

Ready to step up to a new model or SR22?  Our differences courses take your existing Cirrus experience and transition you to the new Garmin Perspective avionics suite, SR22 and/or Turbo variants with ease.  Training is typically accomplished over a few flights in a day or a schedule that is most convenient for you.

Flying today isn’t what it used to be 50 or even 10 years ago.  Today’s airspace is filled with more airplanes that are capable of travelling farther, faster, and higher than yesterday’s typical aircraft. Today’s pilot has also changed with the generations.  He or she is probably very busy with a career, is often glued to a mobile device, and wishes there was more free time to spend with family or to enjoy other activities.  He or she needs to use the airplane not only for fun, but also as a business and transportation tool.

As the world has changed, many aircraft and flight schools are still living in the days gone by. A typical flight school is offering the same type of flight training – geared toward local flying in good weather and “The $100 hamburger” – and in many cases the exact same airplane that was offered decades ago.

Cirrus aircrafts are the pinnacle of what General Aviation flying means today. Features such as advanced composite technology, state of the art avionics, unparalleled safety features, ease of operation, and speed have made the Cirrus SR22 the best selling airplane in its class for the past 9 years.

Clearly, the old style of flight training is inadequate to prepare pilots for the challenges of safely and efficiently travelling thousands of miles in a single day, across multiple weather systems and through many types of airspace and terrain.

Today’s pilot needs to be thinking about these challenges from day 1 and incorporating the required skill and resource management into every flight lesson. This method of training (called Scenario-Based Training) has been proven extremely effective in many other fields including the medical, military, and law enforcement industires.

Beginning your flight education in a Cirrus aircraft with DestinationsEFC will ensure that you are being prepared for flight in the 21st century.

CTCs and CSIPs have been personally trained and evaluated by the training specialists at Cirrus headquarters and follow the same training programs that Cirrus uses during factory flight instruction. All are held to the same high standards of excellence that Cirrus uses for flight training. Whether you are a seasoned pilot looking to expand your flying experiences in a new Cirrus aircraft or someone who dreams of learning to fly in a new, technically advanced aircraft, DestinationsEFC will tailor your flight instruction for a fantastic and exciting experience.

Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilots (CSIPs) are experienced Instrument Flight Instructors (CFII’s) that have been specially trained by the specialists at Cirrus Aircraft headquarters. These professional flight instructors have undergone extensive ground and flight training in Cirrus aircraft to distinguish themselves as an expert in Cirrus flight training. All CSIPs use standardized flight operations manuals, syllabus suites, and procedures to ensure that your flight training is consistent with other Cirrus pilots’ training and with that of the factory training at Cirrus Headquarters.

CSIPs can accommodate almost any flight training request or requirement and are the preferred training providers by leading insurance underwriters. Cirrus Aircraft strongly recommends that all initial and recurrent Cirrus training be conducted by a CSIP, a CTC, or with a factory instructor from Cirrus Headquarters.
