TacAero partnered with CubCrafters to provide their customers with purpose built flight training options for CubCrafters entire line of modern backcountry aircraft.  TacAero indoctrinates its students on the unique operating systems and procedures for their particular CubCrafter airplane, so that they are intimately aware of their specific aircraft’s capabilities and limitations.  We train CubCrafters owners how to properly use the advanced avionics installed in their aircraft, so they can master the cockpit automation, and appropriately manage their workload while flying over the hinterlands. TacAero instructs CubCrafters owners how to handle abnormal, and emergency situations, so they can have peace of mind when embarking on their next wilderness adventure.

Any competent instructor can give their student an insurance checkout.  We aren’t interested in meeting minimum requirements.  We train our CubCrafters students how to leverage the incredible capabilities of these amazing aircraft.
