Norton Aviation offers the only complete Eclipse 500 training programs in the world that not only have
FAA approved flight training but also offer the FAA Check Ride through our on-staff Designated Pilot
Examiners (DPE). The programs are approved for all versions of the Eclipse from AVIO 1.0 to IFMS 2.7.
The Eclipse 500 Initial Type Rating Training is unique in that it is governed by the FAA through an operating
limitation in the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM). This AFM limitation mandates specific pilot training
requirements that must be accomplished in order to operate the Eclipse 500 as Pilot In Command (PIC).
Norton Aviation's training program meets these requirements by offering a building block approach that takes
advantage of self-paced at-home and on-line studying plus flexible flight training that can be accomplished in
your aircraft or ours at your own home base and on your time schedule. Every enrolled pilot must meet the
FAA minimum certificate requirement of a private pilot single engine airplane with instrument rating or foreign
pilot equivalent. Our program consists of:
Norton Aviation's FAA and insurance approved recurrent training program consists of the at-home study
program (the only prerequisite) and two days of ground and flight training (2 flights) in your aircraft.
As you can see, our FAA (and Insurance) approved Eclipse training programs are very comprehensive and
offer every pilot from private to professional a thorough understanding of not only the Eclipse 500, but
real-world safe flying practices. Our programs are designed to provide one-on-one personal training by
professional aviators instructing each pilot at their own pace, at their location, and on their own schedule.
