Cirrus Flight Training

Our Blue Bell location serves as the region’s leading training provider for technologically advanced aircraft (TAA). We operate as the largest Cirrus Service Center on the East Coast and serve as part of Cirrus’ global network of Cirrus Training Centers (CTCs), which means that our team of expert instructors has been personally trained and evaluated by the specialists at Cirrus Aircraft headquarters. You will receive cost-effective, first class training in top of the line equipment. Our Cirrus training fleet features the new and advanced glass cockpits, advanced safety and aerodynamic features and, the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS™). Safety, technology, and speed make the Cirrus aircraft the best-selling general aviation aircraft in the world.

Avionics and airframe proficiency are two of the most critical factors to consistently safe outcomes in flight. Almost all fatal Cirrus accidents have involved a pilot that either never received official transition training or hadn’t flown with a qualified instructor with any regularity.

Besides the incomparable avionics technology, the Cirrus is so popular because of the airframe parachute system for safe aircraft recovery in emergency situations. You will find comfort not only in the generous legroom, but in knowing you have an amazing backup system should an emergency occur. Safety has never looked so good.

By taking advantage of the tools and resources that Cirrus has available, we hope to equip you with a more thorough understanding of your aircraft’s capabilities and limitations, a safer and more efficient operation of your aircraft’s systems, and, perhaps most importantly, the situational awareness and good judgment vital to the safe outcome of each and every flight.

Cirrus Checkout Requirements

For checkout privileges in our Cirrus aircraft, renters must register on the Cirrus Approach website and complete Cirrus Transition Training as laid out by Cirrus Aircraft with one of our CSIPS or Training Center Instructors (TCIs).

To maintain rental privileges, all of our Cirrus renters are required to fly with a flyGATEWAY instructor for a 90-day refresher, and every 6 months thereafter.

If you’re ready to get started, give us a call to schedule your first transition training lesson. We typically recommend scheduling lessons in half or full-day blocks.
