Guidelines for fleet progression

Post by Jean Egan » Sat May 25, 2019 6:43 am

I reviewed the guidelines for fleet progression (sheet 1) dated 20 May 2019. I am unable to open sheets 2 and 3

It states that pilot training is initiated in 233 until license requirement are met

It seems that the guideline is in contradiction with the ATPL glider conversion course which will train unlicensed glider pilots on Grob or K21

Does the guideline will restrict new students only to 233 and prevent them to do their pilot training in a Grob or K21

Does the guideline apply to the k21 ZH, which will give priority for flight training (students cards prioritized over members) and priority with no charge air time for FC scholarship students

If a student, ab-initio or powered, wishes to learn to fly or convert to unpowered on the K-21, and is willing to pay to learn in a glass trainer, why would we say no?

Who said no? We have previously agreed that the choice is the student's and that the relative advantages, cost/benefits of the options should be explained.
