Flying the Skycatcher

Online single-subject course

For pilots transitioning to the Cessna Skycatcher

If you are already a pilot, you'll find this course gives you just what you need—from using the amazing Garmin G300 to understanding how to best fly this very capable little airplane.
3 hours

The KING Flying the Skycatcher course is the official pilot transition course used in Cessna Pilot Centers around the world.
The Skycatcher is an absolute delight to fly. With a low panel, large windows in the doors, and struts that are behind the pilot and passenger, the visibility is fabulous. And because it is a Cessna, the handling is a delight. This transition course demonstrates all the basic maneuvers in the Skycatcher.
