April 12, 2018, SUN ‘n FUN – Lakeland, FL The latest online edition of the Cessna Flight Training System that has, for decades, helped thousands of pilots achieve their goals, is now available to all flight schools. The online curriculum integrates flight and ground studies and ensures that learning pilots and their instructors know what they have completed, how they are doing and what’s next. Each course includes video previews of each flying lesson and a home-study ground school and test preparation section.
Learning pilots will especially appreciate the free iPad app that will let them study, prepare for flight lessons and view their progress, even when offline.
Instructors have their own app, allowing them to use their iPhone or iPad to view student status and record flight lessons, even when they are offline. An audit-for-completion feature gives instructors an easy way to see remaining graduation requirements for each student. Flight school managers receive access to a full range of business reports to track their flight school’s operational status.
The Cessna Flight Training System has evolved over decades, and was originally used exclusively by Cessna Pilot Centers. Now, all flight schools, university aviation programs and even high school aviation courses can use the system to support their flight school operations and benefit their learning pilots.
The Cessna Flight Training System includes a suite of Part 141 approvable online courses, ranging from Sport Pilot and Private Pilot all the way through Instrument, Commercial, Multiengine and CFI courses.
“Flight Schools that use the Cessna Flight Training System can offer a consistent, high-quality training experience to any customer from zero experience all the way to being able to earn money and build time as a Flight Instructor. The portability of the courses across multiple devices, including an offline option through the iPad app, are designed for the digital online environment that our pilots now live in,” commented Martha King, Co-chairman and co-owner of King Schools.
