UK Pilot Requests Advice

I am a UK citizen and I hold a CAA (JAA) ATPL and IR and I have about 14,000 hours as PIC. I also hold an FAA PPL (SEP/MEP) based on my CAA licence. But I now wish to gain a type rating for flying a private Citation on the N-register in Europe. So my intention is to complete the FAA CPL and IR theory tests in UK, and then travel to Florida (in early April) to do the necessary pre-test famil/training before taking the CPL and IR flight tests on an MEP (the Citation bit will come later).

I am looking for advice on where I might be able to do this, ideally somewhere near Lakeland so that I will also be able to visit Sun’n’Fun! — Terry E.

If you have any advice for Terry, please comment here or answer his post at Rising Up Aviation.

  1. Hey, Terry I just finished my private at Lakeland Linder and although its a great airport the flight schools are limited. I do know that there is a flight school in Daytona Beach that specializes in people from Europe, but I’m not sure they offer the advanced training you seek. I know there is also several advanced FBO’s at Orlando Executive airport in Orlando. I hope this helps.. See you at Sun’N’Fun.
