T-28B Trojan Training

Trainer of T-28 - flight trainingThe military aviators that had the privilege to fly the Trojan will never forget the feeling of flying the most advanced military propeller driven aircraft of its time. Michigan Warbirds offers this opportunity to civilian pilots. Our main focus is the T-28 initial qualification course. This course will prepare you for an experimental authorization in the T-28. We also conduct recurrent ground and flight training for pilots who are rated in the aircraft and want to brush up on their general knowledge or flying skills. In addition to initial and recurrent training, we also provide unusual attitude and aerobatic training in the T-28.

The objective of the initial qualification course is to provide both ground and flight training to a proficiency level that will allow you to operate the aircraft safely and to pass a ground & flight evaluation for a T-28 experimental authorization. This experimental authorization will be annotated on your pilot certificate and will allow you to act as pilot in command of the T-28.

The course is designed for a pilot with no T-28 experience. It is assumed that pilots enrolled in this course are proficient pilots and current in all phases of VFR operation including FARs, airspace, communication and flight planning. This course is designed to only teach T-28 operations. This course is set up for ten hours of flight instruction. That should be more than adequate to reach an acceptable level of proficiency. If a student is doing well, it may be shortened at the discretion of the instructor. If a student is not comfortable and unable to reach a safe level of proficiency, additional training will be recommended. In no case will a student be scheduled for a FAA check unless he/she is prepared.

To be eligible for an authorization to serve as PIC in the T-28, the applicant must:

  • Possess at least a U.S. private pilot certificate with an appropriate category and class rating ( airplane, single- engine land)

  • Possess at least a valid U.S. third class medical certificate

  • Have logged a minimum of 500 hours of pilot flight time

  • Have logged 50 hours complex time

  • Received the appropriate training in the T-28

  • Pass a flight evaluation given by an Experimental Aircraft Examiner

The initial qualification course is very intense and requires many hours of preparation before a student shows up for flight training. The ground training will review systems, limitations, emergency procedures and normal procedures. The flight training will cover normal procedures, emergency procedures, basic aerobatics, unusual attitude recoveries, high altitude flying, night operations, instrument flight and cross country flight. A student scheduled for this course will be sent a package of all the required study materials with guidance on how to prepare for the flight training.

T-6 Texan

T-6 Texan - flight trainingThe military aviators that had the privilege of flying the T-6 will never forget the training they received in these aircraft. Michigan Warbirds offers this training to civilian pilots who want to experience what it feels like to fly this vintage WWII aircraft. We offer a complete initial qualification course for the T-6. We also provide recurrent, aerobatic and advanced tailwheel training. In addition to training, we offer rides to both pilots and non pilots who want to experience the excitement of flying in a vintage WWII aircraft.

The objective of the initial qualification course is to provide both ground and flight training to a proficiency level that will allow you to operate the aircraft safely.

This course is designed for a pilot with no T-6 experience. We do require a tailwheel endorsement before training. It is assumed that pilots training in the T-6 are current in all phases of VFR operation including FARS, airspace, communication and flight planning. This course is designed to only teach T-6 operations. This course is set up for five to ten hours of flight training depending on the experience of the student. There is no FAA check ride for this course. The course is complete when both the student and instructor feel the student is capable of flying this aircraft safely. For those who do not wish to complete a checkout program, but just want a few flights in the T-6, that is also available.

To be eligible to act as PIC of the T-6, an applicant must:

  • Possess at least a U.S. private pilot certificate with an appropriate category and class rating (airplane, single-engine land)

  • Possess at least a valid U.S. third-class medical certificate

  • Have a Tail Wheel Endorsement

  • Received appropriate instruction in the T-6
    The initial qualification course is very basic and straight forward, but does require some preparation before the student shows up for flight training. The ground training will review systems, limitations, normal procedures and emergency procedures. The flight training will cover normal procedures, emergency procedures, basic aerobatics, unusual attitude recoveries, stalls and three point/ wheel landings. A student scheduled for this course will be sent a package containing all the required study materials and guidance on how to prepare for the flight training.
