The web-based instrument training course and updated learning management system, the Cessna Course Tracking Application, will be available through Cessna Pilot Centers later this quarter. Cessna also expects to expand the flight training system to include a commercial pilot course, company officials said.
“The instrument pilot course provides pilots taking the next step in their development with incredible resources at their fingertips. We’ve used the latest training principles, finely honed in the Sport/Private Pilot Course, to ensure that pilots seeking an instrument rating have the best preparation possible for a lifetime of enjoyable cross-country flying,” said Julie Filucci, manager, Cessna Pilot Centers. “We’ve designed our new online Cessna Flight Training System to provide training anytime and anywhere on the customer’s schedule while giving the flight instructor maximum flexibility to adapt the training to the customer’s needs. In the hands of our Cessna Pilot Center network, it has become the training standard of the future.”
Customers pursuing their instrument rating have access to in-depth knowledge sessions and in-the-cockpit flight previews featuring the Cessna 172S with the Garmin G1000. The web-based system keeps track of every aspect of their training and they can access training materials from any location where they have access to the Internet, company officials said.
The Cessna Instrument Pilot Course Kit comes with a host of additional materials, including a folding kneeboard and view-limiting device to assist pilots with their training.
Cessna Pilot Centers are flight training affiliates that use Cessna’s proprietary training curriculum and Cessna aircraft. There are more than 260 around the world.
