SFP is proud to offer mentoring in the Citation Mustang, Citation CJ, Phenom 100 and the Eclipse 500.  Mentoring is modeled after Airline IOE (Initial Operating Experience) training.  After completion of your type rating, you are paired with one our experienced instructors for a specific period of time (Determined by experience and insurance requirements).  During mentoring, you gain invaluable exposure to flying the aircraft in “real life” scenarios.  Operations at your home airport, challenging weather, jet operations, and single pilot flying is all covered in a stress-free, enjoyable environment.  Feel free to use this time for business and pleasure trips.  After completion of the type-rating process, this is your time to truly enjoy your aircraft.

"A pilot's addiction is the freedom to separate ourselves from the ground; To make the world smaller by moving fast and navigating in straight lines; To experience the perspective our feathery friends have enjoyed for millions of years; To constantly challenge ourselves with our flying machines; And, when it is time to come back to reality, we get the pleasure of constantly pursuing perfection during the most rewarding part of the flight...the landing."
