Safety Pilot

Post by PharmDPilot »

I just purchased an XL2 and I am looking for someone close to Louisville, KY to be a safety pilot to help me get safely transitioned to flying this type of aircraft. Preferably a CFI or CFII who has lots of experience in the XL2.

You may have trouble finding a CFI who is familiar with the handling characteristics of the XL2. Years ago I couldn’t find one. The insurance company let me check out with a liberty delivery pilot.

XL2Driver (this forum) was the Company business development manager/ pilot, possibly test pilot, regardless he knows the aircraft better than most.

I think he also offered training at some point.

I’d track him down and see whether he can assist

Thanks for that shoutout :-)
I spoke with PharmD and will see if I can help him out when it's safe enough to travel again.

My CFII has flown with me for years in my XL2..he is based out of KBDR if you need another name.
