Bonanza & Baron Pilot Training

To Our Customers:

After careful consideration — and in light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) challenge — we have cancelled the three in-person Fall 2020 BPT Clinics. Instead, we have scheduled three Virtual BPT Clinics from 1200-1600 ET [12 pm Noon until 4 pm ET] on:

  • Saturday, October 3, 2020 / 12 pm Noon until 4 pm ET – Sold Out
    • “Tidbits” including updates on extensions to medicals, RFRs COVID vs. cockpit, etc.
    • “Night Flying”
    • “How Healthy is Your Engine?”
    • “Aviation Risk Management”

  • Saturday, October 17, 2020 / 12 pm Noon until 4 pm ET – Sold Out
    • “Aircraft Inactivity & Maintenance Implications”
    • “The Involuntary Glide”
    • “Weather Tools, Updated”
    • “IFR GPS: A Checklist Approach”

  • Saturday, November 7, 2020 / 12 pm Noon until 4 pm ET
    • “Latest, Greatest & Most Expensive Foreflight Features”
    • “Mechanic Topics II”
    • “Old Farts & Airplanes”
    • “Moving From Legacy Autopilots”

For a one-time registration fee of just $500 you can attend as few or as many of the 3 on-line days as you wish. The format for each day will be 4, one-hour topics with time for questions and a break. The topics will be different for each of the three dates, so a total of 12 topics. The schedule has not been finalized, but current plans are to include topics like: Night flying, tidbits updates, moving from legacy autopilots, recent accident analysis, old farts vs. aircraft, how healthy is your engine, maintenance issues, involuntary glides, a checklist approach to IFR GPS, long distance flight, latest ForeFlight features, and weather tools.

About a week before each of the Saturday dates, you will receive an email with the final schedule and instructions on logging into that seminar.

By conducting these three Clinics virtually, BPT can continue to provide the experience that you expect and deserve. Your health and safety, as well as that of our instructors, staff, sponsors, hotel and FBO employees is our highest priority.

BPT is offering an optional flying add-on to the Virtual Training to spend a half-day flying with one of our instructors, like you would at a “regular” BPT weekend program, on a date convenient to you and your instructor. You can choose to add the flying option for $495. Note that if you would like the instructor to fly to your location, the instructor’s travel expenses are your responsibility. Also, your training flight must take place by October 13th, or it will be delayed until sometime in early 2021. There are a limited number of flying slots available this fall so sign up soon!

There are some basic BPT topics as well as some brand new ones introduced at these BPT Virtual clinics. Our presenters will include many of the veteran BPT CFIs and Mechanics as well as some new BPT CFI talent. These are dedicated instructors and include Master CFIs and General Aviation awardees (CFI of the Year/Maintenance Tech of the Year/FAASTeam Member of the Year.)

Come participate with other BPT pilots and instructors and become a safer, more proficient pilot by attending one or more of the BPT Virtual Clinics this Fall.
