THE MAIN COURSE
SR Series Cross Country Procedures Course
EXPERIENCE THE CIRRUS LIFE
As you’re learning to fly, you learn the basics, stay local and focus on how to be a safe pilot, but your ultimate goal is to get somewhere. When you started your journey toward the freedom that only a pilot’s certificate offers, you had several missions in mind. Yet you still hesitate to leave the familiarity of your hometown airport without the safety net of your flight instructor on board. Whatever your mission, you want the confidence to break out of your comfort zone and fly to new destinations.
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
The Cirrus Cross Country course tackles the topics you’ll need to know to become a competent, safe cross-country pilot. Follow along on your favorite flight planning app as this course delves deep into the planning and execution required for a real-life 350 nm flight. Join Cirrus Aircraft’s flight instructor Anthony Bottini on a cross-country flight from the Smoky Mountains of Knoxville, Tennessee, to the soft sand of Destin, Florida, over the varying terrain, airspace and weather.
Not one, but TWO new 2023 SR22s!
We are super excited to welcome TWO new beautiful 2023 Carbon SR22s to the Mike Goulian Aviation fleet in Bedford!
N824MK is blue and bold, with colors: Monarch over Sterling. N5695S is red and radiant, with colors: Evolution over Sterling. Congratulations Bill and Dan on your new birds and thank you for trusting us with operating these beautiful aircraft!
N5695S and N824MK are currently going through engine break-in hours, but will be available for rental in the beginning of June and training flights shortly thereafter.

In this month’s pro tip, we’ll refresh ourselves on these factors and some mitigation strategies when it comes to summertime flying.
