Flight training available

Primary Training

PPL(A)

Private Pilot Certificate

PPL(A) license is primarily intended for those pilots who want to fly more than a twoseater and not only to use it for joy flights but also for business travel. PPL(A) license allows its holder to act as pilot in command of any single engine piston airplane (SEP) for non-commercial flights, up to maximum certified weight of 5.7 tonnes.

Additional Training

VFR NIGHT

VFR Night Rating

Qualification for night flights allows the holder to fly at night according to visual flight rules (VFR). Night flying training is focused on mastering a higher, especially psychological, pilot load caused by the limited visibility of the ground, horizon and other reference points which can cause difficult spatial orientation. This qualification is also a necessary endorsement in order to obtain an instrument rating qualification for night flights.

UPRT

Upset Prevention & Recovery Training

The training objectives are to clarify reasons and consequences of aircraft entry into unusual attitudes and also to explain how to resolve given situation. Most importantly, the pilot will learn how to prevent these situations at all. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has recommended the inclusion of UPRT into CPL(A) training syllabus. This is also expected within next years in ATPL(A) training.

Why is our flight school different?

Nowadays, flying is not what it used to be fifty or even ten years ago. Today's airspace is filled with more airplanes which are able to travel further, faster and higher than yesterday's airplanes. Also, current pilots are pilots of a different generation, who are often busy with their careers and wish to spend more time with their family. Not only do airplanes provide entertainment today, they are also a tool for a business travel.

Advanced Technology

The aviation industry is continuously improving. However, still many flight schools live in the ancient times and offer local, old-school flight training in good weather. Cirrus is the pinnacle of what today´s general aviation means. Advanced composite technologies, state-of-the-art avionics, unrivalled safety features, ease of use and speed have made Cirrus the bestselling airplane in its class over the past 17 years and counting

Scenario – Based Training

Traditional pilot training is becoming inadequate in terms of challenges that a pilot has to face today. Flying hundreds of miles per day, through several weather occurrences, airspace and different terrain. Today's pilots have to think about this since the first day of training and incorporate these essential skills into each flight lesson. We combine theory with practice and this training method (Scenario-Based Training) has proven to be very effective in other sectors as well. Our Cirrus Training Center is ready to teach you how to fly in the 21st century.

Cirrus Approach

Cirrus Approach is a revolutionary way of training. Pilots know that a recurrent training has a positive impact on the skill, performance and safety of the pilot, but at the same time it is difficult to make time for proper briefing and training. Instead of taking part in one or two seminars per year, the pilot just simply enrolls in Cirrus Approach and chooses a course from the menu that he wants to refresh. The content is engaging, interactive and he completes it online from the comfort of home.

Training materials

Do you remember those boring flight instruction materials that were once used? We do. Cirrus has created completely new training material - an interactive flight operations manual (iFOM). More than 50 interactive courses on your fingertips in your tablet. Download as e-book

Standardized transition training

Since the beginning, Cirrus Aircraft has been committed to creating a safer aircraft, safer pilots and by no means safer sky. Flying safely will always be the most fundamental mission Cirrus Aircraft. Just as Cirrus Aircraft has changed general aviation over the past 17 years, it has also changed the way of flight training, which is based on standardization. For every transition or recurrent training, the instructor uses the iPad app with predetermined syllabus by the manufacturer to meet the exact requirements for the pilot.

Airline-like cockpit philosophy

In our aircraft are checklists designed so that the individual activities follow up on each other. They create so-called "flow", so much reminding the cockpit philosophy used in airliners. The purpose of flow is to memorize certain procedures easier.

Safety first

CAPS™ is truly a remarkable safety feature. However, each innovative tool requires proper training. CAPS™ is more than just pulling the handle. CAPS™ requires a change of mindset to "safety-first" to make the parachute deployment instinctive when losing control of the airplane. In order to train the proper use of the parachute, there is plenty of training material and simulated training in the full-flight simulator in Poznan, Poland.

Why should you train in Cirrus?

Cirrus contains four safety features in its aircraft: Aerodynamics and other passive functions can help protect you from inattention or distraction; situational awareness and the stress reduction feature help reduce workload and help you pay the attention that the flight requires. If you lose control of CAPS, a parachute can help, and if it really ends with an accident, the durable construction will help protect you against injuries.

Parachute

Life-saving equipment if the pilot loses control of the aircraft.

Stability

ESP also helps protect you during manual control, from falling, exceeding the speed limit or other loss of control.

Cuffed wing

Cirrus selected wing technology developed by NASA, which reduces the potential of spiralling when unintentionally falling.

Improved visibility

Optional installation of an infrared camera enables increasing visibility by up to three times in conditions such as haze, rain and night.

Weather in real time

Animated satellite weather provides an accurate, comprehensive picture of the weather, enabling the pilot to make immediate, safe decisions.

Obstacle warning

The terrain awareness and warning system (eTAWS) provides both visual and audible warnings.

„Since the beginning I liked the personal, individual approach of all of you and the complexity of the modern Cirrus Aircraft. I got amazed by standardized training system, the Learning portal, including the following "Stay current". In this I personally see the biggest advantage, keeping up with the system for my own safety and confidence. Commuting eventually wasn't such a problem, I always tried to associate 2-3 days of training It allowed me to dedicate those days purely to training, be maximally focused as I had to create enough space in my business schedule. I will be happy to continue training with you, transition to SR22T, NIGHT and IR training.“

„After completing my PPL(A) training and subsequent flying experience on multiple aircraft, I started looking for a way to get the instrument rating. I contacted several companies in Slovakia, but nobody responded to me. I got a birthday present from acquaintances - a demo flight on Cirrus SR22 G5 in Žilina, during which I met the pilot of this plane. He became a good friend of mine and gave me a contact to Cirrus Aircraft in Příbram. After first conversation with Mr. Ing. Dobroslav Chrobak, the owner of the company, I immediately got a solution. Today I am studying for theoretical exams, in CB-IR training and completely transitioned in Cirrus SR20 and Cirrus SR22. I also fly with instructors with airline experience and only in almost new aircraft with the most advanced avionics, technology, and safety-oriented teaching approach. I look forward to next flights and I fully recommend this company to other pilots who want to fulfill their dreams :).“

„I appreciate the technological sophistication, safety level and overall attitude of Cirrus Aircraft and its partners to flying. I have an incomparable flying experience against my initial conditions. In no other school, which I had opportunity to fly at, I did not see such emphasis on the quality of training, safety, and the balance between theory and practical flying. In particular, Cirrus accents theoretical fundamentals, which I highly lacked in other flight schools. Lecturers directly from the manufacturer participate in the annual winter training seminars and talk about very interesting topics.“
