Any existing pilot who wishes to rent an aircraft from us is required to perform an aircraft checkout regardless of pilot total time or experience.
With 24/7 rental and electronic self-scheduling, we aim to be the easiest and best rental service in Southern California.
Below are a few things you can expect from a checkout with one of our instructors.
Checkouts are a minimum of 1 hour of flight time and also require the completion of the checkout quiz, which can be found here.
You will demonstrate at least the following during the aircraft checkout:
3 acceptable takeoffs and landings
Simulated engine out
Stalls and basic flight maneuvers
Show that you are safe, competent, and knowledgeable in the aircraft
Paperwork for the checkout can be found below.
You may complete this before your checkout to streamline the process if you wish.
Alternatively, they can also be provided in the office.
