Pilots can choose between conducting the training and FAA checkride at any location in their own aircraft or using Norton Aviation’s Eclipse 500. The company has also introduced Phenom 100 training, including simulator preparation instruction, in-aircraft type training andpost-type rating pilot mentoring.
