Dynon SkyView Hands-On Transition Training
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
No schedule for classes has been set for 2014. We hope to offer classes at some of the major shows, but we are also working on other training options and classes at airshows are not guaranteed, though we do intend to keep offering them periodically here in Woodinville.
Keep watching our website and newsletter for information about future 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.
Lunch to be served 12:00-1:00 for attendees of both sessions.
- Dynon Headquarters in Woodinville, Washington
- Friday, 25 October 2013 *
- Friday, 15 November 2013
* Special Note: Both morning and afternoon sessions of our class on 25 October will be video-recorded and both sessions will focus on VFR procedures. Our intent is to record the class and make the video available for all customers to access from our website.
All those lucky individuals attending the October classes will be asked to sign away their rights to make money on publication of the video. In recognition of your sacrifice, however, all attendees will receive free lunch and a complimentary Dynon hat!
To sweeten the pot, we'll also be offering a door prize to one of the attendees of the October 25th classes -- both morning and afternoon classes combined. We're not saying what it is, but be assured it will be a desirable Dynon product!
As a reminder, seating is limited to 15 people for each class, and you must reserve your spot in advance through the link on this page.
Think of this as your opportunity to participate in what may become THE live concert DVD of the year.
- attendance is free for all attendees, but advanced reservations are required.
- class size is limited to 15 students, assuring hands-on practice for all, with no more than 2 students sharing each SkyView display.
- Non-pilot partners are welcome to attend, although if the class is full they may need to sit at the back.
Transportation to Factory:
Attendees are responsible for their own transportation to/from the factory. However, for anyone wishing to fly via GA to one of the area airports, upon request special arrangements may be made to assist with ground transportation.
