Frequently your insurance company may tell you that you MUST attend a simulator school. While simulator based training can be very good training, some people would rather train in their aircraft. Let us work with your insurance broker and underwriter to get you the best training. Sometimes a no simply means that they need a reason to allow you to train in your aircraft. We can get training in your aircraft approved. With so many different avionics packages available (Garmin G500, Garmin G600, Aspen, GNS 430, GNS 530, Avidyne, Garmin G1000, Aspen, and many others) we can give you the training specific to the equipment in your aircraft. While Simulator companies such as SIMCOM, Simuflite, and FlightSafety, offer good training they cannot have panels/autopilot set ups for every aircraft. Training in your aircraft offers the distinct advantage of knowing your equipment. We have experience with all of the avionics set ups and can give you the specialized training you need to safely and efficiently operate your aircraft. If you think your insurance if forcing you into Simulator training, but you want to train in your aircraft we will work with your insurance company to make that happen. We have experience doing this with many clients, and have had good success at it.
