Steve Passes SF50 Checkride and gets Type Rating

In Journal by Steve Sliwa

I completed my SF50 Type Rating today.  I took a two-week training course completed with a 2-hour oral exam and a 2.5-hour flight test.  During the flight test, I had a simulated aborted take-off, an engine cut at 300 feet, a fire emergency with a glide to a parachute deployment.  The most challenging part was an approach into Memphis in bad weather to minimums and then a circle to land on another runway with very tight tolerances.

It sure is good to get the type rating.
