Some flight schools have aircraft with “glass cockpits” and others do not. Are there any advantages of training in either aircraft?

FAQ » » Some flight schools have aircraft with “glass cockpits” and others do not. Are there any advantages of training in either aircraft?

There is no question that modern technology has impacted the general aviation cockpit, including training aircraft. The choice is ultimately yours, but some things to consider will be the cost of training in the “glass cockpit” versus conventionally-equipped training aircraft. Additionally, your future ambitions might involve or require extensive use of glass-cockpit aircraft. In either case, train in an aircraft that best suits your present and future needs and interests. Epic is proud of its fleet of glass cockpit Cessna 172s and Piper Seminoles. The vast majority of our students are training to become commercial airline pilots, which is why they prefer to train in a glass cockpit.
