Some pilots may come to Air Ventures PDK with previous Cirrus experience. In order to rent the SR20, all pilots must have completed a Cirrus transition course at our flight school or have the course certificate as proof of that training.
Some pilots may have received this training in earlier, less-sophisticated versions of the Cirrus product line. For those pilots, Air Ventures PDK offers additional special courses, identical to the ones taught at the Cirrus factory.
> Advanced Transition: Similar to the basic course but includes extra time for accomplishing an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC).
> Avionics Differences: This course concentrates on learning how to manage the Garmin Perspective systems in both VFR and IFR flying.
> Airframe/Powerplant Differences: This course is designed for proficient Cirrus Perspective pilots who want to transition from the SR22 or SR22T to the SR20. It is typically a 1-day course.
> Recurrent Training: Every Cirrus pilot is expected to stay sharp and proficient. After all, the best safety feature in any aircraft is a well-trained pilot! Air Ventures PDK and our insurance carrier require Recurrent Training every 12 months in order to rent the SR20 airplane.Back to the Cirrus Experience Main Page
