ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Crosswind Concepts, an aviation training center based at Centennial Airport, has launched its “Stick-n-Rudder Ground School” educational offering to pilots.
Flying an airplane you’ve never flown before is a lot like cooking in someone else’s kitchen. Although you know how to work a stove, the microwave can present a challenge and finding the most basic of implements can be time consuming and frustrating.
Now add the dimension of being at 3,000 feet above the earth and hurtling through space at 120 knots. Before you attempt to go it alone, it’s a good idea to get some training in that “kitchen.”
Most pilots — and their insurance companies — recognize the value of transition training when moving from one model of aircraft to another. However, it can be a challenge to find someone who can legally provide that training, especially when you intend to fly an experimental aircraft.
The FAA has granted approval for CTI Professional Flight Training’s Millington, Tennessee, satellite to join its Fort Lauderdale, Florida, partner in offering a structured Part 141 flight training syllabus to its students.
CTI Professional Flight Training has been training professional pilots at its Fort Lauderdale location for over 25 years, and recently expanded its operation to a satellite base at Millington Regional Jetport near Memphis, Tennessee.
Aerosim Training Solutions has received FAA approval for its Airline Transport Pilot Certificate Training Program.
The ATP CTP is a course that has been mandated by the FAA to be completed by all pilots who wish to add an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate to their existing certificates in order to fly for a commercial airline (part 121 carrier). This also applies to pilots who wish to operate as a pilot in command (PIC) in the part 135 or part 91 environment.
