VFR Transition

The VFR Cirrus Transition is designed to provide licensed pilots with the knowledge needed to operate a Cirrus aircraft properly and safely, focusing on aircraft control, emergency procedures, avionics, and engine management, using Cirrus approved curriculum. This is not your standard checkout. It will give you the tools necessary to master the Cirrus inside and out.

IFR/Advanced Transition

The Advanced Cirrus Transition is more in depth than the VFR Transition and encompasses comprehensive instrument flight training to develop your proficiency in IFR conditions flying a Cirrus.

Cirrus Differences

Cirrus Differences are for experienced Cirrus pilots who want to expand their skills and knowledge into different areas of Cirrus flying.

We offer the following differences training:

  • Avionics: Go from Avidyne to the Perspective avionics suite and master basic programming tasks, course planning and communications control, PFD and MFD navigation, and autopilot use.
  • Airframe / Powerplant: Learn crucial engine management techniques for Turbo or Turbo-Normalized Cirrus aircraft to provide engine longevity, as well as high altitude flying and weather, with use of supplemental oxygen.

Pilots Have to Say

  • 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    “Lately, all sectors of the aviation industry have been criticized for unfriendly customer service and outdated aircraft and systems.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”

  • Mach 1 Aviation is the ultimate flight school in the San Fernando Valley. After renting for over 20 years, I finally found home. Mach 1 has modern “like new” state-of-the art aircraft which are well maintained and always clean.

Mach 1 has modern “like new” state-of-the art aircraft which are well maintained and always clean. The terminal is impressive, the amenities from the coffee to the pilots lounge are exceptional. Above all, the entire staff is super friendly, professional, and truly a pleasure. I feel privileged to be part of Mach 1 and wish you much success! Thank you for your great service.”

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

  • 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!”
