Piston Multi-Engine Instrument Refresher

2-Day Piston Aviation Training

Intended for instrument rated pilots who operate piston-powered, multi-engine aircraft, this two day course is comprised of four hours of classroom and six hours of simulator instruction.  Classroom study details multi-engine aerodynamic and performance characteristics as well as IFR regulations and procedures.  Simulator training consists of the practical application of one engine inoperative operations and in-flight IFR procedures and techniques.  Simulators used for this training represent either the Beechcraft Baron 55/58, the Cessna 400 series or the Piper Navajo.  Offered at Orlando, Florida and Scottsdale, Arizona training center locations.
