Four Cessna Pilot Centers have gained FAA Part 141 approval to use a new sport/private pilot training curriculum, Cessna announced Dec. 14. The four flight schools are Air Fleet Training Systems Inc., Fairfield, N.J.; Pensacola Aviation Center, Pensacola, Fla.; Snohomish Flying Service, Snohomish, Wash.; and Trade Winds Aviation (doing business as Skyworks Inc.), San Jose, Calif. Many other CPCs are in the approval process to add the course to their training programs, Cessna said.
The new curriculum, announced in September, was developed in conjunction with King Schools Inc.. The Web-based system keeps track of every aspect of a pilot’s training, and updates can be made instantly. Instructors can customize the program to meet the requirements of the local training environment.
