Cessna offers this G1000 transition training at the factory in Independence, Kansas, and it is also available through qualified factory-trained flight instructors. These instructors are recognized by the factory as Cessna FITS Accepted Instructors (CFAI). (An instructor qualified on both high-wing and low-wing Cessna aircraft is identified as a CFAI+). If you have just purchased a new Cessna aircraft that comes with a factory training allotment, we can give you your free factory training at your home airport and Cessna reimburses us directly for the cost of the course (you just cover travel expenses). If you have purchased a used Cessna, without a factory training allotment, this course is available for you to purchase.
High Performance Aviation, LLC, can provide you with a Cessna FITS Accepted Instructor (CFAI+). Our CFAI+ instructors are qualified to teach in all single-engine Cessna piston aircraft (172, 182, 206, 350, & 400). The course can be offered for on-site training, or training en-route from the factory to your home location. If you have a busy schedule, or simply want the convenience of training at your home airport, this may be a great option for you.
Our instructors have given the Cessna Factory G1000 transition course to many individuals, organizations, and even government agencies. Consider the value of having an experienced CFAI+ teach you in your new Cessna at your home airport.
NOTE: Transition Training does not constitute a Biennial Flight Review (BFR) or an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC). If a BFR or IPC is desired, additional time should be scheduled in advance.
