• Flying a Citation Single Pilot:

    Single Pilot Waiver

    Our CE500 Single Pilot Waiver 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. Beyond just passing your checkride you’ll feel safe and competent flying your citation single pilot.

    The CE500 SPW course is completed over five days at our beautiful facility in southern California. The course includes two days of ground, eight hours of dual instruction in our Citation Ultra Simulator and your 61.58/SPW check-ride with an in-house examiner.


    In order to qualify for a single pilot waiver you must meet the following requirements:

    *ATP or Commercial certificate
    *CE500 Type Rating
    *1000 hours total time
    *50 hours night
    *75 hours instrument (40 actual)
    *500 hours as a PIC or SIC in turbine powered aircraft
    * 3 take-offs and landings in the preceding 90 days in a 500 series aircraft

  • A Relaxed Environment

  • Flexible Scheduling


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.
