Your Choice in Recurrent Training

Aircraft owners, this is your course. The new Quarterly Training Program was designed specifically with you in mind. Tired of realizing at the last minute that your two-year BFR is due or scrambling to complete your IPC every six months? We feel your pain! That is why we strive to do more than just sign you off for your recurrent training. Our goal is to get to know you and how you interact with your airplane over the course of a full year of training.

The Quarterly Training Program consists of 4 training stages. Three events are held per quarter and each of them is a half-day training event. The course is designed to provide a pilot with an Instrument Proficiency Check* twice a year and a Flight Review* once a year.

The insurance company (and your passengers) will love you! HPA offers personalized instruction to fit your needs and our instructors will go above and beyond to make sure that you are proficient in your airplane. Need a full day of training instead of the standard half day? That’s no problem at all. Coordinate your needs with your instructor and we’ll make sure that you get the attention and training you need to be successful and safe. And, whether you are flying the latest in modern technology, or a steam gauge legacy aircraft, all of our clients are treated professionally and with the respect that a fellow pilot deserves. We are all here for one reason and that is our love of flying. For us, it doesn’t matter what you fly; it only matters that you do fly.

There’s a synopsis of each stage of the Quarterly Training Program below. If you’d like to sign up, contact us to get started on your own personalized recurrent training program today.

*Completion of BFR & IPC is based on pilot proficiency and cannot be automatically guaranteed.
