Cirrus Aircraft has launched a new Private Pilot Program designed to teach anyone to learn how to fly an SR Series Cirrus aircraft and earn their pilot’s license. The Private Pilot Program provides an immersive ground school training partnered with a dedicated Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilot (CSIP) through a Cirrus Training Center (CTC) to help students complete their Private Pilot License (PPL) in a Cirrus aircraft.  

“Learning to fly and earning a pilot’s license is what moves the personal aviation industry forward,” said Zean Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of Cirrus Aircraft. “From day one, our mission has been to grow engagement and participation in personal aviation, and our new Private Pilot Program makes that experience easier and smoother along the way.”

The Private Pilot Program includes 11 modules with 40 engaging lessons that take users through the pre-study material, ground instruction lessons, flight instruction videos, performance assessment and quizzes. The Private Pilot Program is a highly specialized training program offering specific flight training content to learn to fly a Cirrus aircraft alongside a dedicated CTC and CSIP by leveraging study materials designed and written by Cirrus Aircraft’s flight training experts.  

Designed and developed by Cirrus Aircraft’s pilots and experts, the Private Pilot Program is the industry’s first program that focuses on learning to fly an SR Series aircraft, says the company. Furthermore, the program breaks down barriers and pairs users with a dedicated Cirrus training partner who will encourage users to complete their PPL.  

The Private Pilot Program is now available through Cirrus Aircraft’s corporate-owned flight training locations and U.S. Network Partners.
