Turbine Training Center Blog for Cessna 208 Caravan & Beechcraft King Air pilots
We've have sold our Caravan 208 training program and simulator to Walter Aviation, Inc. in Perry, Iowa.
We continue to provide training for the King Air 90/100/200 and 300 Series, Ag Transition, CAMTS and Jump Pilot Certification.
But we are also also adding a new Air Tractor course and simulator in 2019!
The Cessna 208A Caravan and 208B Grand Caravan are by far the most common turbine jump airplanes in the world. From Skydive Switzerland to Skydive Andes, from Skydive Sydney to Skydive Dubai and everything in between you will find Caravans hard at work flying skydivers. Jump pilots love how fun and easy it is to fly, owners love its lower operating costs compared to other turbine aircraft and skydivers love the high wing and large exit door.
The Caravan photographed above experienced an engine failure. It can happen to any airplane at anytime. I thought that today would be as good a day as any to review the Emergency Procedures for Engine Failure Immediately After Takeoff for Cessna Model 208B (675 SHP).
When Eben Rexford wrote the famous lyrics above in the mid-1800s, the only one who could even imagine that they might someday be recited by a man using a “flying machine” would have been Jules Verne! Yet, after 74 year-old Harrison Ford’s near miss recently, there is a great deal of attention being paid to a pilot’s age and their ability to fly a plane. As a result, if you are a pilot and are in your 60s, or ever plan to be in your 60s, you should be more than a little bit interested in HARRISON FORD’S NEAR-CRASH AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING.
“Look - - up in the air - - - it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a flying car?!?”
No, we haven’t taken to writing Science Fiction! Rather, this is part of our quest to keep our Blog Readers as completely informed as possible regarding the evolution of Aviation. And, the idea of Flying Cars is one that is being seriously considered, very seriously, by what is becoming one of the premier people-movers in the country -UBER. That’s why it is important for everyone involved in the Field of Aviation to stay abreast of UBER INNOVATIONS AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING.
