Air Tractor (402, 502, 602, 802) Training Courses
For over 20 years, Turbine Training Center has offered a turbine transition training course for ag pilots moving from piston into turbine-powered aircraft. We proudly offer dual control, AT-802 flight time/instruction, and time-building packages!
In addition to our classroom curriculum, we offer an added training dimension with the 502/802 Air Tractor simulator. By incorporating Air Tractor simulator time with the classroom familiarization of the PT6 and its operation, we can significantly enhance the knowledge and skills gained through the course. We can give the pilot repetition with normal operating procedures of the turbine engine, but also have the ability to cover any emergency procedures which 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, you can benefit from the safety and knowledge gained through initial or recurrent training. Turbine Training Center makes it possible and easier than ever!
