Cirrus Training

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. And you can train with Melbourne’s only Platinum Cirrus Standardised Instructor Pilot (CSIP) at Avia. 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 from your CSIP.

Typically courses consist of the following hours:

  • 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.
