CATS – Getting Serious About Cirrus Training

So far my summer reading as revolved around two books about IFR flight and the ASA Instrument Oral Exam Guide, which has about a quarter left for me to read.

As for flying, I have kept my commitment of flying at least once a month in the Piper Cherokee. The reason for that is because it’s a low wing like the Cirrus, its speed is similar to the Cirrus in the pattern and it has a fuel pump, along with left and right fuel tank management responsibilities. A Cessna 172 is just too easy…like flying a kite, almost boring by comparison.

Now with my head floating, the interactive training software called CATS is here and installed on my computer. So at this time I have started working on learning all about the Cirrus SR-20 and plan to complete the workbook that I started with my instructor and continue on with my transition training.

I am hoping that an opportunity that presented itself to me this week might mean that by mid-August, funds will be available now and on an ongoing basis for training. I am hoping for the best!
