Also Announces Advanced Training Program
Symphony Aircraft Industries has added three more flight schools
to the growing list of training customers flying Symphony's SA160
Skyline Aeronautics of St. Louis, MO, Palo Alto College in San
Antonio, TX and Jacksonville, FL-based Magic Flight Training have
agreed to fly SA 160s as part of their respective training
programs. For Skyline, the decision came down to the Symphony's
Avidyne Entegra glass-panel display.
"Symphony is the perfect aircraft filling a niche in the general
aviation (GA) market for TAA (Technologically Advanced Aircraft)
glass training on a more cost effective platform," said Skyline
Aeronautics owner Michael Gaffney. "This allows us to reach down to
the new aircraft purchase and pilot training candidates without
having to spend the quarter million dollars on the current fleet of
TAA training aircraft that are now available."
Skyline Aeronautics was also chosen by the company to be the
exclusive training provider and developed for its Part 141 FITS
Glass Cockpit transition course, for new owners who choose the
Avidyne glass panel option. Symphony told ANN the school's focus on
high-technology aircraft was crucial in the decision.
The training program
will include a two-day course split between classroom and flight
time, and completion of the course and checkride can even lead to
insurance discounts and safety rewards, according to the
While the advanced level of technology available on the Symphony
160 was a strong factor in all the flight schools' decisions to go
with Symphony, it wasn't the only factor.
"The SA 160 is so fun to fly," said Magic Flight Training Chief
Pilot Peter Crooks. "Our students progress much faster in this
aircraft than in old-style 4 Place aircraft."
