Transition Training


Transition Training in Melbourne for pilots of all levels

Cirrus Aircraft have not only built a truely advanced aircraft, but have also created a robust training and safety culture around it that goes far beyond simply having a parachute attached to the airframe. The Cirrus Transition is a course designed to maximise a pilot’s understanding of the systems and decision making processes associated with having these extra safety capabilities.

Cirrus have standardised their training across the globe, so training received here in Melbourne will be acknowledged and accepted in USA, Europe and beyond. The course comprises a theory course (completed online), a flight portion and a small amount of simulator time. When completed, you’ll receive a certificate with a serial number that is searchable by any authorised Cirrus Centre.

The first port of call is the Cirrus Learning Portal. You can sign up at any time and begin the free sample modules.Should you enjoy the sample content and wish to continue, you’ll need to purchase either the SR20 or SR22 course (depending on which model aircraft you desire to fly). Ensure you also select the Perspective avionics suite when signing up.

Next, we’ll book you in for your flights and the CAPS course.

  • For a VFR transition, 8 hours dual instruction is the worldwide average for completion (minimum 6).
  • For a VFR+IFR – otherwise known as an Advanced Transition – the worldwide average is 10 hours dual instruction (minimum 8).
  • The CAPS training is a half day course, consisting of a brief/discussion, plus 2-3 hours in our full-motion Cirrus simulator.

Whether you are a seasoned pilot looking to expand your flying experiences or someone who dreams of learning to fly in a new, technically advanced aircraft, AVIA Aviation will tailor your flight training to get you flying in a Cirrus aircraft quickly, efficiently, and safely.
