The transition course is designed for licensed pilots (non-instrument rated) who wish to fly Cirrus aircraft. If you are current but have never flown a Cirrus, the transition course, designed by Cirrus, has excellent structure and can be completed in approximately 10 hours of in flight training with one of our CSIP Instructors. The Transition Course utilizes Cirrus’ online computer training portal.
After completion, combined with some VFR flying of your own, you will become proficient and comfortable with the airplane in VFR conditions. In a very short time, you will undoubtedly become a fan of the capable Cirrus Aircraft.
Typically, proficient pilots can expect to spend approximately three days (or equivalent) to complete the course. Emphasis is placed on the pilot gaining proficiency in all of the areas listed above. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to understand and operate relevant aircraft systems, maintain positive aircraft control in visual conditions and limited instrument conditions. Due to the technology integrated into the aircraft, significant emphasis is placed on your ability to effectively manage these resources to the extent necessary for flight in visual flight conditions. Actual time requirements may vary depending on your previous flight experience. Completion of the course can accomplish the requirements for a flight review.
Successful completion of all course objectives will result in a certificate of completion.
