Transitioning to the Cirrus Aircraft
What is a Cirrus?
A Cirrus is the most technologically advanced general aviation aircraft on the market to date. Along with the CAPS parachute system, Beverly Flight Center’s Cirrus Aircraft are equipped with state-of-the-art Garmin avionics along with synthetic vision, GFC700 autopilot, dual AHRS, 60/40 flex seating (seats up to 5 passengers), and tons more. Transitioning to Cirrus aircraft is a simple process at Beverly Flight Center. Our experienced CSIP and TCI instructors follow a strict syllabus provided by Cirrus Aircraft to guide new Cirrus pilots through our Cirrus program.
The Cirrus Transition course is designed for licensed pilots who wish to fly a Cirrus aircraft. The course focuses on mastering aircraft control, engine management, use of avionics, use of autopilot, and important emergency/abnormal situations in VFR conditions. Completing the Transition Training course satisfies most insurance requirements or aircraft checkout procedures for pilots new to Cirrus aircraft. Training will consist of both classroom sessions on the ground as well as sessions in the aircraft.
