Whether you have completed your training with us in aircraft or have been to one of the big 3 simulator schools, you may not feel comfortable in the aircraft yet. Or if you obtain your 1st Type Rating in a simulator, you will issued a restricted type rating and be required 25 hours of Supervised Operational Experience (SOE). Or in other cases, your insurance company may require additional dual instruction.
Initial training or an initial type rating is primarily focused on abnormal elements required for the check ride, not normal operations or specific model piloting techniques. We can help you get the most from your investment with practical operational experience personalized to you and your aircraft.
Areas of concentration include:
- Preflight Planning
- Cabin Equipment
- Navigation Databases Updates
- Flight Planning with the FMS
- Specific Avionics Package familiarization
- Optimum Cruise profiles
Consider acquiring initial operating training through the FFC Pilot Mentoring Program. All of our instructors at FFC are active and current on the specific make & model. They have experience in all FMS systems in new and legacy aircraft that can be shared with you in real world scenarios. Our Pilot Mentoring Program can be personalized to fit your needs: from riding along with you and your pilots, to answering operational questions, to providing additional training that your initial simulator training did not cover. The Pilot Mentoring Program can begin with the delivery flight after acquisition is completed or during normal missions.
Our Pilot Mentoring Program will satisfy SOE (supervised operational experience) requirements set by the FAA and insurance requirements.
