X-Air Announces Flight Training Program

Plans To Branch Out To Flight Schools

Light sport aircraft manufacturer X-Air announced Thursday the addition of Terry Brewer as the Flight Training Program Manager. Brewer was the architect of the flight-training regime for Columbia Aircraft (now Cessna), which for its time was the most strident in the industry providing both standardization and FITS approval.

"Terry brings professionalism and an uncompromising passion for aviation to the X-Air team," said X-Air's David McRae. "Terry's success in running high profile and high performance aircraft training speaks for itself, but an added bonus is the relationships he has developed within the insurance industry and their subsequent recognition of the benefit of standardized factory training."

Terry Brewer started flying at Felts Field in Spokane, WA and earned a Private Pilot license while in college. He graduated from Gonzaga University, entered the Army Aviation Branch, and attended the Rotary Wing Aviator Course and the Maintenance Test Pilot Course-graduating as Distinguished Graduate in both courses. Terry holds CFI-I, MEI, and ATP certificates.

He has been a flight instructor for The University of North Dakota and various flight schools in the Inland Northwest. Most recently, in the position of Chief Pilot for Columbia Aircraft, he was instrumental in ensuring that Columbia Aircraft's factory owner training and standardization program was recognized for its efficacy throughout the insurance industry.

Though a relative newcomer to the LSA market, X-Air says its LS is being heavily courted by flight school programs across the country ready for an affordable flight training option.

"We recognize that within the LSA category there is a great need for a standard to be applied to the training environment both at an OEM level and at the general flight school level," Brewer said. "The X-Air LS is an ideal training aircraft that is ripe for the LSA and the private pilot training market. I hope to bring my expertise and experience to the LSA category in a way that enhances safety through training and education."

X-Air's plans are for their flight-training program to initially go into effect with customers upon delivery of their aircraft and to steadily branch out through various flight schools implementing the X-Air training program. The current Flight Training Supplement is provided as part of the ASTM acceptance of each aircraft and is delivered with the aircraft for the owner/pilots consumption.
