Dynon SkyView Hands-On Transition Training

Class Description

We all recognize that transition training is important before hopping into a new airplane or airplane type. Whether in the clouds or in clear skies, flying a new plane is not the right time to be learning how to operate aircraft avionics and systems. To help you in your transition to new Dynon Avionics instruments we are offering an ongoing series of hands-on training. These are half-day courses, sitting in front of live SkyView equipment, and with in depth instruction on how to operate your avionics. Instructing these classes will be Kirk Kleinholz, CFII and Sales Manager for Dynon Avionics.

This class will introduce pilots to most ground and in-flight operational features of the Dynon Avionics SkyView system.  In-depth discussion of installation and initial configuration of the system is not an objective of this class, though some of those concepts will be addressed where relevant.  

An additional objective of this class is to educate pilots about the process of transitioning from analog instrumentation to glass panel systems in a small GA aircraft. Including the cognitive differences of analog and digital/electronic instrumentation, cockpit resource management, etc. 

_______________
Schedule for 2014

We are still developing the class schedule for 2014.  We hope to continue to offer classes at some of the major shows, and we are also working on other training options. We intend to keep offering them periodically here in Woodinville, because classes at airshows are not guaranteed.

Keep watching our website and newsletter for information about future classes.

Factory Classes 

We try to schedule classes approximately monthly at our factory near Seattle, Washington.  The classes are free, but please do sign up so we know you are coming. If you are from out of town and want to make a weekend of it, nearby are some incredible aviation attractions. The Seattle Museum of Flight, Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Collection (perfectly restored, flight worthy WWII aircraft), and the Boeing Factory Tour (747s, 777s, and 787s) and Other Local Aviation Events are must sees.

The morning and afternoon classes contain substantially similar content. Please sign up for one session only so that we can maximize SkyView training station availability. If you'd like to sit in on the other session, you are welcome to stay.
