Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) Training

The Airplane with a Parachute

The Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) was created to protect pilots and passengers in the event of an emergency while in mid-air. The parachute system is manually deployed during emergencies, allowing an aircraft to safely lower to the ground. Once a pilot recognizes an emergency situation, he or she pulls a red CAPS handle on the ceiling inside a cockpit, which releases the parachute within seconds. This innovative technology has helped avoid many tragedies and saved countless lives. Add CAPS training to your skillset today and fly with confidence.

What does CAPS training cover?

  • How to recognize emergency situations
  • How to land an aircraft in an emergency
  • Ground training and muscle memory procedures
  • Making split-second decisions that can save lives

Pilots Have to Say

  • A very professional place is the simplest way for me to explain how my experience was. I will recommend Mach 1 to all my flying buddies.

    “A very professional place is the simplest way for me to explain how my experience was. Located in the same building as signature west, it was a bit overwhelming having lots of professional pilots and lots of expensive jets all around you; nevertheless, it was still welcoming and friendly. Best hour or so training I had in a while from any flight instructor. Defiantly [sic] ask for Tony as an instructor, he is down to earth, safe, knowledgeable, and friendly. Prices could be a little more then they should be but considering the fact that airplanes are thousands of dollar aircraft, I didn’t mind it so much. As we all know, the four force acting in a plane is thrust ( Money), Drag (reality)..etc. I will recommend Mach 1 to all my flying buddies and more importantly a good review any where I can.”

  • Now I can fly to any destination of my choosing. It’s hard to convey the excitement of being a pilot

    “When I came to Mach 1 for the first time all I could think is “I can’t believe I’m going to fly a plane!” When we lifted off the ground for the first time, I was amazed by Jason’s complete control of the plane. His confidence was so reassuring. I couldn’t wait for the day I could fly a plane with the same confidence. I now have that confidence. I will never forget the day of my first solo. There is no feeling like the first time I lifted off all by myself. All I could think as I was flying around the pattern is “oh god now I have to land”. When the wheels of the plane touched the ground I just wanted to scream with joy because I’d done it! I’m training full time to become an instructor and I fly every day. Every time the wheels touch the ground I still get the same feeling. Mach 1 is really making my dreams come true! I can fly solo and have now been granted my Private Pilot Certificate! Now I can fly to any destination of my choosing. It’s hard to convey the excitement of being a pilot. My training at Mach 1 has been amazing and so thorough. Just one flight with Jason in the Cirrus and I was hooked! I really never imagined how bad ass it would be!”

  • They are the only pros around teaching in the Cirrus. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

    “Mach 1 is a truly amazing and professional flying school. I have flown all over with many different instructors from Florida to NY to here in California. Jason the owner and his instructors have an extremely high level of competence but they also make the experience fun. In addition, I love flying out of Van Nuys it's a lot safer statistically than Santa Monica. The aircraft is really nice at Mach 1. They are the only pros around teaching in the Cirrus. I wouldn't go anywhere else.”

  • My wings and license are not only backed by my hard work but also by all those at Mach 1 who sat in the right seat and taught me how to fly. I am lucky and privileged to be a part of the Mach 1 Aviation family

    “Lately, all sectors of the aviation industry have been criticized for unfriendly customer service and outdated aircraft and systems. Fortunately, this stereotype is not every passenger or pilot’s reality; Mach 1 Aviation proves that businesses operating in the skies can actually be friendly. When I made the decision to go ahead and get my Private Pilot License, Mach 1 struck me as the perfect group to work with. It is important to understand that all flight schools offer the same foundation: a plane to train in. The Cirrus aircraft parked on the flight line certainly were an enticing foundation, but when making a flight school choice the decision came down to the people. Mach 1’s “secret sauce” is not so much a secret but rather a rarity in today’s world; above and below the wing they have a great team. Jason and the entire Mach 1 family helped me earn my license on budget and ahead of schedule- try getting that kind of service from a large, national flight school. Coming out of Private Pilot training and moving into my next chapter, Instrument Certification, I do not feel like a product fresh off a conveyor belt but rather a pilot who can wear his wings proudly. My wings and license are not only backed by my hard work but also by all those at Mach 1 who sat in the right seat and taught me how to fly. I am lucky and privileged to be a part of the Mach 1 Aviation family”

  • It’s truly been a blessing that I chose Mach 1 as my flight school. I would recommend them to anyone.

    “I can’t say enough great things about Mach 1 and their staff. Professional and friendly service is all they know how to offer and their flight line is the best on the field. Their facility alone makes it a pleasureable expereience [sic]. My instructor was extremely patient and knowledgeable about not only aviation and instructing, but the aircraft itself. The instructional quality is unprecedented. It’s truly been a blessing that I chose Mach 1 as my flight school. I would recommend them to anyone.”
