• Courses Overview:

    CE525(S) Initial Type Rating:

    Our CE-525 Type rating course was built directly from our experiences working with thousands of aviators over the last decade and a half. Each training session is designed to teach you the fundamentals you will need in the air, as well as adapt to your personal strengths and weaknesses as a pilot. We feel that in taking this approach to training beyond just passing your checkride, you will feel safe and competent leaving our facility.

    Unlike the 14 day courses of most training providers, our accelerated CE-525(S) initial type rating course is completed over ten days at our beautiful facility in southern California. Six days of ground school with our seasoned instructors, Ten hours of dual instruction in our CJ1 Simulator, and a two-hour checkride with an in-house check airman. (Multi-pilot and multi-event discounts available.)


    Our CE525(S) Recurrent course (or 61.58) is built on many of the same principles as our initial course. We want to make sure you leave our facility feeling comfortable operating your aircraft over the next year. The course is taught over a three day period. Two days (or 16 hours) of ground school with our top-notch instructors, two hours of dual instruction in our CJ1 simulator, and a two-hour checkride with an in-house Check Airman. Multi-pilot and multi-event discounts available.)

Our mission to provide beneficial and convenient training options for aviators extends beyond hiring experienced instructors and providing state-of-the-art training technology. LOFT’s thoughtfully designed facility is meant to make you feel at home throughout the day and our close proximity to San Diego’s beautiful beaches, top-rated restaurants, and countless hotels gives you plenty of options to make your trip enjoyable.

On Demand Scheduling:

As aviators ourselves, we understand how frustrating restrictive training schedules can be. Because of that, all of our scheduling here at LOFT is done on-demand. Meaning that we do not operate pre-scheduled classes, but rather start our courses around our clients’ availability. We operate 7 days per week, 363 days per year. This keeps our class sizes small, and our schedule flexible.
