Curriculum Co-Developed By Noted Instructor
Cirrus Design is always looking for ways to improve customer
access to its planes, and to enhance training... and the company
announced a novel program Tuesday at Lakeland 2008 that should
address both areas nicely.
Company Chairman and CEO Alan Klapmeier stated Cirrus Training
Centers and instructors will soon utilize a combined
private/instrument curriculum in pilot training. The new program
will be up and running this month.
The program's syllabus was developed by Paul Craig, a professor
at Middle Tennessee State University. The joint syllabus was also
developed and tested through the "FASTER" program, and is a first
among OEM general aviation manufacturers.
"Customer safety is a top priority at Cirrus and we are proud to
lead the industry towards new and improved training initiatives,"
Klapmeier said. "By utilizing a combined curriculum that has
clearly proven to be beneficial and effective, we look forward to
helping build a new generation of highly-advanced pilots."
"We are dedicated to providing the latest training initiatives
to our pilots to ensure their safety and the safety of others,"
said John Gauch, Director of Fleet and Training Center Development
