Dual Control, AT-802 Flight Time/Instruction + Time-Building Packages Available!  Call for details

Air Tractor (402, 502, 602, 802) Training Courses

For over 20 years, Turbine Training Center has offered turbine transition training courses for ag pilots moving from piston into turbine-powered aircraft.

In addition to our classroom curriculum, we offer an added training dimension with the 502/802 Air Tractor simulator. Incorporating simulator time with the classroom familiarization of the PT6 and its operation enhances the knowledge and skills gained through a course.

We can give the pilot repetition with normal operating procedures of the turbine engine but also can cover any emergency procedures that would not be possible in the actual aircraft in a controlled environment.

Whether pursuing a career in agricultural aviation or a seasoned, high-time pilot, benefit from the safety and knowledge gained through initial or recurrent training. We make it possible and easier than ever!
