* Pilot Safety Minute #82~ Transitioning to Faster Aircraft
Transition to a Faster Aircraft
By TC FREEMAN
Transitioning to a faster aircraft can be an adrenaline packed and nerve racking experience all wrapped up in one. There are different types of transitions, for example; light sport to a certificated aircraft or from a typical two-seat trainer to a complex, high-performance fire breathing turbine engine single. Piloting some aircraft such as a multi-engine or turbine single engine aircraft may require Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification or at a minimum a log book endorsement. The good news is that there are some common traits to upgrades in general that can make transitioning to faster, more sophisticated aircraft easy.
