Crownair Aviation and Coast Flight Training and Management have joined forces as Cirrus Platinum Partners for Authorized Service and Training. Both companies are located at Montgomery Field Airport (MYF) in San Diego.
Crownair Aviation maintains Coast Flight Training’s fleet of Cirrus Aircraft and is open to the public for aircraft service, inspections, maintenance and avionics. All airframe technicians have completed the Cirrus Initial training program, Specialized Composite Repair Lab in Duluth, CAPS Line Cutter Replacement, and AmSafe seat belt restraint training, company officials said. Crownair’s Avionic Technicians attended Garmin 1000 and Cirrus Perspective by Garmin training in Olathe.
Coast Flight Training and Management’s fleet is composed of new Cirrus SR20s and SR22s. Coast uses a Scenario Based Training program (SBT), which enables pilot graduates from the academy to immediately enter the pilot ranks of commercial airlines, according to company officials. SBT is used by the military and airlines, and focuses on providing the student with the critical decision-making skills necessary to exercise the duties and responsibilities of the Pilot In Command. In addition, Coast owns and operates a new full-motion RedBird flight simulator set up to train in the Cirrus platform.
