We conduct training in your aircraft, and at your facility or at any location that would be convenient for the event. We can even accomplish the scheduled training at an enroute location working within your flight schedule.
Safety is always the #1 priority. Each course of training includes the operational topics specific to aircraft type. In addition, we include topics specific to pilot operation, such as issues dealing with Regulations, ATC, Weather, Utilization of Avionics, Safety Issues, and other items that we feel complete the training experience. We train to your department's SOPs.

Each of our course formats is designed for either one or two pilots at a time. However, we can train additional pilots or crews during the same event with an additional amount of time added to the scheduled event.
No. Including all of the direct costs to the aircraft, and the cost of training utilizing Aviation 2000 Inc. the final cost is still substantially less than the other training method. We can supply a cost vs. cost profile so that you can see the difference for yourself. And remember, that along with the cost savings is the savings in time, which is in it self a very valuable commodity to you and your department. Aviation 2000 Inc. saves you both time and money, while providing the highest quality of service.
Since we operate under the pilot training and certification guidelines of FAR part 61, there is no specific approval required. All of the major insurance companies that we have worked with accept our programs.
No. We have designed our course outlines so that we can, if necessary, accomplish all of the training and checks while working within your own flight schedule. If required by your flight schedule, we will even train during off hours, between your flight schedule, or even at a remote facility.
The specific areas of operation, tasks, and objectives, can be reviewed by the pilot by referring to the guidelines established by the FAA in their publication AIRLINE TRANSPORT PILOT and TYPE RATING PRACTICAL TEST STANDARDS FAA-8081-5C. A copy of this can be obtained at your local FBO, Flight School, or through a catalog such as Sporty's.
Yes. If your schedule does not allow for training at the time of the required PIC checks, our PPE can administer just the 61.58 check, accomplished for a crew in a single day.
Those specific procedures or maneuvers, or demonstrations of system malfunctions, are accomplished on the ground. The aircraft can be supplied power through the GPU, and then used as a FTD (flight training device). This method provides for excellent training and the desired training results, while maintaining safety.
One complements the other. For a professional pilot with previous professional training which has included simulator based training, flight training is essential. There is no better way to improve a pilot's skills and experience, and understanding the aircraft capability, than actual flight training in the aircraft.
There is nothing better than hands on training, and when your crews train at and in the real aircraft, the transfer of knowledge is much better, faster, and more complete. In fact, the first day of training is right there at the aircraft, completing a preflight, getting an overview of the systems, learning how to service the aircraft, and working through all of the checklist, including start and taxi. "Nothing beats the real thing".
Of course. This "Initial Operating Experience" ( I.O.E. ) program, which we call our " ride along service," has been very successful with many new operators. The crew simply flies the trip, with Aviation 2000 either in the jump seat, or acting as a crewmember. Call us for more details about this service.
We will try to keep you informed about operational issues, regulatory matters, and information concerning safety, on a regular basis by updating this page as often as necessary. If you have any comments or suggestions, or would like to post something here, please let us know.
