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.

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

    “I could not have had a better experience. The instructors are enthusiastic, knowledgable and incredibly talented. The aircraft are immaculate and all fairly new, and the office manager/flight dispatcher Sarah was extremely helpful.”

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    “Lately, all sectors of the aviation industry have been criticized for unfriendly customer service and outdated aircraft and systems.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

  • You couldn’t ask for a better school, aircraft, facility and staff.

    “I got my PPL ticket at Fly Mach 1 Aviation. This is the best flight school in the LA/Ventura area. Before Fly Mach 1 I cycled through at least seven flight instructors as a student. I started at a different school at Van Nuys in a Cessna 172. My initial instructor quit. Then I bounced around a few of the school’s newbie CFIs. I moved to a Cirrus school which no longer exists and was left high and dry just post solo. I felt that school was just cashing in on my instruction hours they went belly up. I found Fly Mach 1 owner Jason Price. He salvaged a bad situation and helped me get my private pilot license. I’m sure Fly Mach 1 Aviation would recognize this review. I’d be happy to speak in detail with anyone who is considering Fly Mach 1 Aviation. They can get you in touch with me via email. You couldn’t ask for a better school, aircraft, facility and staff. I have the picture, adventures and lifelong memories to prove it. Fly safe!”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
