All flight training is conducted in aircraft. Training is conducted in your aircraft. Depending on availability, there may be an option to lease a CE-525 aircraft at one of our training centers. At Florida Flight Center, we realize everyone has their CJ set up the way they like it. Therefor, training in your aircraft will prepare you to fly your specific set up and achieve mastery of your aircraft. In addition, our instructors have vast experience flying CJ’s and can provide you with real world scenarios. Your instructor can either travel to your location and conduct training at your home base, or you can travel to one of our training locations.

The CE-525 Type Rating and CE-525(S) Type Rating require a checkride conducted by an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE). We work with several DPE’s throughout the country that can perform your checkride. Depending on where your training is conducted, we will match you with the best DPE option available. Learn more on what to expect from the flight exam and how to reduce test-day nerves.

You can complete the Initial Training Course in as little as 5 days. Training can be accelerated by completing our instructor-supported home study course.

Most noteworthy, you can earn the CE-525(S) Type Rating by completing the checkride to single pilot standards.
