CPPP Overview | Typical Weekend | Syllabus | CPPP Instructors | Required Insurance | Training Record | Register
CPPP weekends feature flight instruction, ground instruction and an alternative course for partners.
A CPPP weekend includes training flights individually tailored to the participant’s recurrent training requirements – and flight participants are encouraged to arrive with a list of topics they would like to emphasize during flight training. CPPP flight instructors conduct extensive preflight and post-flight briefings that substantially contribute to the value of the recurrent training. While the CPPP does not provide a specific syllabus, all CPPP instructors follow the procedures contained in the Flight Operations Manual (FOM) published by Cirrus Aircraft.
CPPP participants may satisfy the flight review requirements of FAR 61.56(e) at a CPPP through the FAA Wings program, essentially waiving the need for a flight review. (FAA Wings flight credit available)
Conducting instrument proficiency checks (IPCs) at CPPP events is discouraged. The CPPP flight syllabus is designed to review and improve a pilots proficiency through instruction. During an IPC, a flight instructor is not allowed to teach, only observe. An IPC consumes a significant amount of time that would otherwise be used to improve your Cirrus-specific piloting skills.
If, for insurance purposes, a pilot strongly desires to conduct an IPC at CPPP, the pilot must arrive prepared to demonstrate proficiency to Instrument PTS standards and must discuss this request with the CPPP flight instructor prior to any flight activity. Whether or not an IPC will be offered is solely at the discretion of the CPPP instructor.
Please note that not all elective segments will be available at all CPPPs.
