Professional Cessna Citation 500 Type Rating Training

Welcome to Executive Flight Training! My name is Doug Carmody, former US Airways Pilot, FAA Pilot Proficiency Examiner (PPE) and professional Cessna Citation instructor. I started Executive Flight Training (EFT) almost 30 years ago as an alternative to the jam-packed classrooms and simulator training offered by the larger Cessna Citation 500 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 hand raising- just results. Whether you're looking for an initial type rating or recurrent training, EFT can accommodate your every request.

Recurrent Path: For Type Rated Cessna Citation Pilots Needing a 61.58

I designed the Recurrent path exclusively for those type rated pilots who've spent hundreds if not thousands of hours in the air in the Citation 500. The recurrent path offers ground school and flight training with expert insights from a trainer with over 10,000 hours of instruction experience. Plus you'll receive a training schedule tailored to your needs rather than the needs of an entire class. We train at your location, in your Citation.

Visit our Citation Recurrent Training page for more information about my recurrent path.

Initial Type Rating Path: For Cessna Citation Pilots needing a Type Rating

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 cheaper than most big-box schools.

Visit our Citation Initial Training page for more information about my Initial Type Rating path.
