Mountain Check-out

Mountain flying is probably the most beautiful flying you will ever do. But, to fly in the mountains requires a great deal of knowledge and skill. Once you have attained your PPL, you can fly with any of Centennial’s experienced instructors in the majestic Rocky Mountains for your Mountain check-out. You will receive ground instruction with respect to pilot physiology, aircraft performance, mountain weather, and topography. The actual flight in the mountains will put your ground training to use as well as teach you the techniques and skills required for mountain aviation.

Turbine Engine & Operations Seminar

The Turbine course offers advanced ground school training in turbine engines. You will learn the theory and operation of turbine engines, advanced electrical systems, high altitude operations, crew coordination, and pressurization control. When you complete this course you will be ready for flight training in turbine aircraft.

Basic Survival & First Aid Seminar

This course is a must for any pilot. A basic understanding of survival skills and techniques, as well as basic first aid, will be introduced to you from the perspective of a pilot. Survival physiology, shelter building, fire lighting, signalling, and many other topics will be covered. Though these types of courses are offered out of Centennial, this course has been specialized to be directed at pilots specifically. (This course goes well with the Mountain Check-out).
