CPPP attendance in Lakeland, FL this past weekend was impressive. The group was so large, we filled the security and boarding lounge at KLAL with tables for the Saturday night dinner. The terminal ramp (usually reserved for regional airline flights) was the expanded flight line and there were several rows of Cirrus airplanes of all vintages parked for the weekend of training.
If you fly a Cirrus and haven’t yet attended one of these weekends, I urge you to do so. You’ll learn a lot, make new friends, and you’re guaranteed to be a safer pilot afterward. You can get your Flight Review (BFR), work on crosswind landings, abnormal procedures, emergency procedures, instrument approaches… or whatever else is on your list of recurrent training goals. In addition to the flying, there are excellent ground courses taught by the best CFIs in the Cirrus instruction business.
I regularly teach at these events, and look forward to meeting you. Check the annual calendar for the location nearest you, and make plans to attend. You’ll be glad you did.
