Montair’s expanding fleet of training aircraft has been carefully selected to ensure optimal training efficiency. The majority of the student’s flight training will be conducted in our fuel efficient single-engine Cessna aircraft fleet composed of 15 Cessna 152/172. In addition, we have 3 Piper PA-34 Seneca twin-engine aircraft, and 1 modern Alsim AL250 flight training device.
The aircraft are well equipped with advanced avionics and flight instruments. Basic training is conducted with analog instruments to facilitate solid instrument flying skills. These basic skills can be carried forward to advanced avionics and instruments such as Garmin 430, Aspen EFD1000, etc. in our IFR and Turbine trainers.
Preparation for the students’ transition to turbine aircraft operations is accomplished on a procedural training device designed to emulate the King Air operating characteristics. Cockpit Resource Management (CRM) training is also introduced at this time.
