Pilot training for the Citation CJ4 will be offered at TRU's West Coast training center in Carlsbad, California, while the Citation CJ3+ and Citation M2 training will be offered at TRU's East Coast training center in Tampa, Florida.
All three of the program's full flight simulators are expected to receive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification in the fourth quarter of 2016. On-site recurrent courses are slated to be available in the fourth quarter of 2016, and the Current 365® course and popular distance learning option is planned to be available in the first quarter of 2017.
TRU's ProFlight product offering features highly individualized instruction using a combination of learning modalities including interactive courseware; an advanced proprietary NextGen flight training device; and a high-fidelity, state-of-the-art Level D full flight simulator, as well as classroom training from experienced, current pilot instructors. The NextGen flight training device closely matches the actual aircraft cockpit and offers a Live Air Traffic Control interface to better prepare pilots for aircraft operations. TRU will offer a mix of courses for these aircraft models: initial aircraft and initial type rating, recurrent, avionics introduction, as well as ProFlight's online Current 365 continuous currency courses where students can access integrated online courseware for recurrent training anywhere they are.
