Hello…I’m fairly new to the Guest membership of COPA so I apologize if this topic has been broached multiple times…
Does anyone know of, or anyone here offer, a travel-to-the-client
training program to knock out an instrument rating for the owner of an
SR-22? If not travel-to-the-client services, then a client-travels-to-the-instructor program?
I am the Chief Pilot for a business-operated Citation, but the company President owns a Cirrus SR-22 that we occasionally fly with/for him. He is a PPL with around 250 hours, most of which is accompanied by an ATP & CFI-IA rated mentor pilot, and wants-slash-needs to get his IRA to provide him freedom to fly it solo on cross-country business trips as well as lowering insurance costs. Him finding the time to do it “traditionally” has proven difficult because of the demands on his time as a business owner…making an intensive 7-10 day program attractive.
In my position I’m happy to work with him on learning basic and advanced IFR procedures as well as practicing approaches, but I know he would benefit substantially from an experienced, skilled CSIP giving him the high level of instrument instruction the airplane demands to operate safely.
We’re not looking to book anything this week, but I hope to present him with some options so that we can get a gameplan together for accomplishing this goal. Please feel free to respond to this tread, or call in confidence to 502.475.8004.
