Cirrus Training

Begin, or continue, your flight instruction with a Cirrus training program, which provides you with the same training programs that Cirrus uses during factory flight instruction. In most cases, this training can help reduce your insurance rates when you fly a Cirrus aircraft.


MacAir Aviation has two Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilots (CSIPs) on staff. We also have two Cirrus SR22 (Avidyne) aircraft to support your training, or you can bring your own Cirrus aircraft.


You can also combine your training with a trip to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force and Dayton Aviation Heritage sites. Learn more about local attractions.

    Cirrus VFR Transition Special

Designed for rated pilots with little to no Cirrus experience, this special includes 8 hours of flight training and up to 6 hours of ground training. *Cost for the course is $2,250.
