10-Day IFR Training Cirrus SR-22


I wanted to send my thanks for the AFIT training I received from Shawn. When I decided to pursue my Instrument Rating, the thought of flight lessons every weekend for months made me feel…UGH!!. It was awesome getting IFR training in my Cirrus SR22 and not some simulator. Shawn was constantly searching for actual IMC conditions so we could train in conditions that gave me the confidence to handle actual IMC conditions on my future flights. Shawn allowed me my dream list for my long cross country, our first leg was Lincoln to Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara then into John Wayne Orange County for a ILS 20R night landing….Awesome!!

The next morning the fun continued on to San Diego, Palm Springs then a long return to Lincoln. The experience was amazing, all the airports my wife and I love to visit & I was able to shoot approaches and gain real time experience. I’m not saying this was easy, it was work….as a student I put in the required work, I followed all of your course recommendations and needed every one of them-ha ha….Passing my IFR check ride was an AWESOME feeling, feel free to share my contact info with any future students, I’d be happy to talk with anyone about flight training and my experiences with Shawn & AFIT.

Thanks again Tony, and Shawn, 2 thumbs up buddy

10-Day IFR Training Cirrus SR-22 / Perspective


I passed the flight portion of my IFR check ride on Tuesday. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the instruction provided by John my senior instructor. John is a consummate professional. This became apparent when we first met. His signature tie and hat exemplify the precision and attention to detail that an IFR pilot must possess before safely taking to the air.

John’s quick wit made the IFR training fun. But he also was able to quickly get me focused on the multiple tasks at hand. For example, he had me shooting VOR and ILS approaches on day 2. That built a sense of confidence in myself that would translate into more effective training activities throughout the 10 days John trained me.

Another skill set of Johns’ is his ability to calmly and patiently review and explain a procedure or task that was challenging. For instance, we did holding turns until I felt comfortable and could demonstrate I had it down cold. In addition, the opportunity to listen to John’s unique radio skills talking to ATC was a great learning experience in itself.

Anyone contemplating accelerated training for the IFR certificate would be well served to consider John as an instructor. There is no question that my IFR performance benefited from John’s unique instructional capabilities.

I had a lot of fun training with John, he is a great instructor and very nice to work with.

Would definitely train again with AFIT.
