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

  • 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.”

  • The aircraft are immaculate and all fairly new, and the office manager/flight dispatcher Sarah was extremely helpful.

  • One of the most knowledgeable CFIs I have ever flown with

    “Decided to actually finish my private pilot training and was looking around for a school. I have about 65 hours in a Cessna but was thinking about finishing in a Cirrus. That is what attracted me to Mach 1. After talking with a couple friends who fly they talked me out of the Cirrus for now and convinced me to finish on the Cessna. My first lesson didn’t happen. The student from the day before left the master switch on and the battery was dead. Not the fault of the school. So I had a choice to go home or fly. So we went and got the keys to an SR20 and took a nice stroll though the skies over So Cal. The Cirrus was amazing but not really something that I am ready to convert to. I scheduled another flight with Jason and he might be one of the most knowledgeable CFIs I have ever flown with. He pointed out some really important bad habits that I have that only a real professional would know. We were up for almost 2 hours and it felt great. I was pretty rusty but it is like riding a bike. My first power off stall was great. I slammed the yoke in a little hard and we were diving at a 75 degree angle. Their planes are the newest fleet at KVNY. It was my first time flying with an all glass cockpit and it was so much nicer than I could have ever imagine. Everything is clean and well maintained. Tanks were full and ready so there wasn’t much time wasted. Looking forward to my next appointment tomorrow. Going to take one of the triplets who has never been in a plane before. I think I am more excited than him!”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
