Mountain Flying Training
For pilots / owners of Cirrus aircraft (SR20, SR22, SR22TN, SR22T) we offer a specific "Cirrus Mountain Training" based on the EASA requirements "FCL.815 Mountain Rating". Typical content:
Procedure & Preparation
The training will be conducted by a Platinum Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilot (CSIP), helicopter pilot and flight examiner.
It can be conducted either on the customer's own aircraft or on a Cirrus SR22T G5 GTS (fully equipped with Cirrus Perspective) from Salzburg. Optionally, a combination with the annual IFR-Proficiency or VFR-Check for the renewal of the SEP-Class Rating or US FAA BFR/IPC is possible.
The "Mountain Flying Bible" by Sparkey Imeson is recommended for preparation.

As part of COPA University, two online Mountain Flying courses (in English) were published in 2021.
