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 typically 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. 

Factory Classes 

We try to schedule classes approximately monthly at our factory near Seattle, Washington.

Attendance is free to all participants.  Advance registration is required, as space is limited to 14 people. 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.

This 10 October class will be a special "live video taping" of the class we've been offering for the last couple years.  Because of that, the format will be longer than prior offerings. The class will last a total of 6 hours, from 9:00a-12:00p and from 1:00p-4:00p, with a 1-hour break for lunch, provided free to all participants.
