"Training was concise and professional. I highly recommend Doug."
Welcome to Executive Flight Training! My name is Doug Carmody, former US Airways Pilot, current FAA Pilot Proficiency Examiner (PPE) and professional Cessna Citation instructor. I started Executive Flight Training (EFT) almost 30 years ago as an alternative to simulator training offered by the larger Cessna Citation type rating schools. EFT is a boutique flight school offering personalized syllabi, one-on-one flight training, and a relaxed, professional learning atmosphere.
My personalized approach means you'll be certified faster and feel 100% confident in your ability to fly the Cessna Citation. No packed classrooms, no "war stories," no wasted time-just results. It is individualized training based on your flight experience, training needs, and demanding schedule. Whether you're looking for Citation 500 or CJ recurrent training, EFT can accommodate your every request.
Traditional Recurrent Path
I designed the traditional Recurrent path exclusively for those type rated pilots experienced in the Citation 500 or CJ needing a FAR 61.58 Check. The recurrent path offers ground school and flight training with expert insights from a CFI with over 10,000 hours of instructional experience. Plus, we offer a training schedule tailored to your needs rather than the needs of an entire class. We train at your location, in your Citation.
Working Recurrent Path
Many pilots have demanding schedules and do not have time to attend a time intensive, rigidly scheduled and crowded Citation recurrent training event. They need an insurance approved, recurrent training program that also meets 14CFR part 61.58 and that fits their schedule. As a FAA approved Pilot Proficiency Examiner (PPE), I travel to you and conduct your training while you fly a normal trip. This "Working Recurrent " saves you time and money. Of course, some maneuvers have to be accomplished without passengers.
For pilots who are just getting familiar with the Citation, my Initial Type Rating path is the safest, fastest, and most personalized training available on the market today. You'll have complete access to EFT's advanced flight simulator, a syllabus tailored specifically to your needs, and exclusive hands-on training with me personally, all for a price that's less expensive than most big-box schools.
