Most aircraft companies offer training; when my Dad moved up in planes; Piper arranged a 5 day course tailored to the plane he bought through flight safety international. The head instructor of our flying club also took the course for the experience. Having an aviation family background I'm big on training even when I think I know it all.

I listed with Tres for trhe school before Christmas day. What Im looking for is 2 or more OSO's that are interested in the class. Tres will be in Hattisburg MS sometime in March and Ive opened my house to do the class, over night, as well as use the 43 Nortech as the test boat. If anyone interested, just let me know so I can get this scheduled, I'll even open up the bar and Sandy is one hell of a cook. Here are a few pics of the boat and bar. Thanks Jeff
