Phenix East Aviation has just announced a new jet type-rating program being offered at the Daytona Beach, Florida academy. Currently two new training courses are now offered: a Cessna Citation Jet Type- Rating and a Cessna Citation Jet Second-in-Command (SIC) Course. The Jet Type-Rating Course is designed to enable the student to act as pilot in command of a Cessna Citation jet. Pilots will be trained under FAR Part 61.63 to gain knowledge of advanced systems through ground school, simulator training and actual flight training.
The SIC Type-Rating Course will train the student pilot to function as second-in-command of a Cessna Citation jet, as well as instructing the pilot to operate in a multi-crew environment. It includes ground school and instruction books, simulator training and jet flight time. Training is under FAR Part 61.55. Pre-requisites for both the Jet Type-Rating and Jet SIC Type-Rating courses are a minimum of a Private Pilot Certificate with Instrument and Multi-engine ratings. All training under this jet type-rating program will take place at Phoenix East Aviation's facility in Daytona Beach, Florida.
