TBM Training

Personalized, Affordable, Insurance Approved

Daher TBM 700/850/900 Initial & Recurrent Training for the Owner Pilot.

Welcome to Executive Flight Training! My name is Doug Carmody, former US Airways Pilot, current FAA Pilot Proficiency Examiner (PPE) and professional Daher TBM instructor. I started Executive Flight Training (EFT) almost 30 years ago as an alternative to impersonal simulator training offered by the larger schools. EFT is a boutique flight school offering personalized syllabi, one-on-one flight training, and a relaxed, professional learning atmosphere.

My personalized approach means you'll be certified faster and feel 100% confident in your ability to fly the TBM 700/850 or 900.. No packed classrooms, no "war stories," no wasted time-just results. It is individualized training based on your flight experience, training needs, and demanding schedule. Whether you're looking for TBM initial or recurrent training, EFT can accommodate your every request.

Recurrent Training

I designed my recurrent program exclusively for those pilots experienced in the TBM that need annual insurance approved training. The recurrent path offers ground school and flight training with expert insights from a CFI with over 10,000 hours of instructional experience. Plus, we offer a training schedule tailored to your needs rather than the needs of an entire class. We train at your location, in your TBM 700/850 or 900.

Travel Training

Many pilots have demanding schedules and do not have time to attend a time intensive, rigidly scheduled and crowded recurrent training event. They need an insurance-approved, recurrent training program that also fits their schedule. As a FAA approved Pilot Proficiency Examiner (PPE), I travel to you and conduct your training during one of your normal trips. This "Working Recurrent" saves you time and money. Of course, some maneuvers have to be accomplished without passengers.

Initial Training

For pilots who are transitioning into the TBM, my initial training is the safest, fastest, and most personalized training available on the market today. You'll have a syllabus tailored specifically to your needs, and exclusive hands-on training with me personally, all for a price that's less expensive than most big-box schools.
