30 West IP offers three main types of training: Recurrent Training, Initial Training, or Custom Training. See below for which training fits your business aviation needs.
All training includes email and telephone access to an instructor for follow-up questions. We encourage clients to reach out after the training with any additional questions. Should a trip arise to a region you have never operated in before, we can also provide a brief follow-up training event at a later date.
The Completion Certificate is a statement from an FAA Licensed Instructor Pilot certifying that the attendees have completed the training as detailed within the certificate. The documentation is in a letter which is emailed to the clients after completion as well as a wallet size card for the crew to carry with them.
