"Training was concise and professional. I highly recommend Doug."
I offer insurance approved Cessna Conquest, Citation and CJ training to pilots wanting initial or recurrent training in their airplane. I operate under FAA Part 61 and emphasizes the "Train to Proficiency" concept. Your training schedule is based on your flying ability, recent experience and time in type. Not some arbitrary timeline. We aren't a big school. I get to know you, learn your strengths and weaknesses, and I put together a program tailored to your training objective. It's a concept that works, I have clients that have been returning every year for the past 20 years. I excel at teaching the nuances of flying the Citation and Conquest professionally. I want you to learn something new every time we train together. I teach things that matter. Information you can put to use in your everyday flying to become a safer and more efficient Citation or Conquest pilot. I don't rehash a tired syllabus of minutiae and memory items. I focus on teaching you how a system works from a pilot's perspective. My goal is for us to develop a long term training partnership. I'm the expert you can turn to with a systems or operating question any time of the year, not just during class. It's a different and better approach to your required training.As a professional pilot, you are in the best position to determine what type of training you need. For some, it's attending a big name school and being in class 8 hours a day reviewing theoretical knowledge. For others, they prefer to train to proficiency and learn more practical information. This training to proficiency concept is the hallmark of my business. Although I have an insurance approved syllabus, I am not so tied to a Part 142 curriculum that I can't tailor my program to my student's requirements and timeline. I reinforce the skills already mastered and incorporate the latest operational and procedural changes. Of course, aircraft system training is included to help you recognize the limitations and capabilities of your airplane. As an A&P mechanic, I know the systems, but more importantly, I teach you what you need to know and skip the pointless stories and endless minutiae.
