New Pro-Focus Training Program Solos First Students
. . . In New High Tech Mooneys
Midland, Texas -- Executives with the new company, Durango Pro-Focus Flight Training, announced that they have begun successfully soloing their first class of students in their aggressive new ab initio pilot training program. The accelerated training is a cooperative program between Mesa Airlines, Midland College, and Durango Airspace.
Chief Flight Instructor Al Galante said, “The first solos of any new program are important benchmarks – but for us, the solos prove our important premise: We can use military precision in brand new high-technology Mooneys and solo students in about the same amount of time that most new students take to solo in simple Cessnas.” He continued, “And obviously, soloing in a 190 knot Mooney puts you much further ahead toward an airline job than soloing in a simple fixed-gear trainer – and that is the whole point of our program.” Galante was formerly Chief Flight Instructor at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
Durango Aerospace was founded by the immedidate past U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff, General Ron Fogleman. The Midland College program launched its first class of students in January, 2002. It is the newest, most progressive flight-training program in the U.S. – and features an “ab initio” teaching syllabus, sophisticated brand new Mooney aircraft, and a guaranteed job interview for students who successfully complete the 19 month, 5 semester program.
Midland College is currently accepting applications for Summer and Fall program applicants. For more information, call 915-685-4661 or go to www.Pro-focusPilots.com.
