Jerry Temple is an experienced Multi-Engine CFII with considerable experience in all models of Twin Cessnas.


The Purchaser of a Twin Cessna, though perhaps an experienced pilot, will often not be insurance qualified to yet pilot the aircraft they’re purchasing. Perhaps they are a new Multi-Engine pilot with just a few hours of twin time, a pilot with twin experience, but moving up to a first pressurized twin or a very experienced pilot, but still insurance firms will require in model training.


In addition, to dual, the training requirement might include training at Simcom (See Below) or other training firms and a solo requirement.


Jerry Temple Aviation (JTA) will often support the Purchaser of a Twin Cessna with delivery support from the inspection facility to the aircraft’s new home base. All time flown with Jerry Temple on these instructional delivery flights can be logged as dual.


JTA will often provide additional dual and more in-depth/check-out training. Such training is normally conducted under a separate Agreement between JTA and the Purchaser. When needed JTA will obtain the approval of JTA’s Twin Cessna Training Syllabus from the Underwriter.


JTA can design a Recurrent Training/Flight Review schedule for Twin Cessna owners. Often a family weekend in Dallas that includes world class shopping, hotels, dining, and sports events combined with Refresher Training.


Over the years of piloting many different Twin Cessna models and flying with many Twin Cessna pilots good procedures and techniques are developed. And, when conducting transition training safe and effective methods are developed for making the experience as easy and as enjoyable as possible.


Special Simcom/JTA Training Program


Jerry Temple can attend with new Twin Cessna owners the various Twin Cessna Model Initial and Recurrent Training Courses offered by Simcom Training Centers. The Twin Cessna courses are conducted at Simcom’s Orlando, FL and Scottsdale, AZ facilities.


Often the new Twin Cessna Owner is FAA Qualified, but not Insurance Qualified to fly solo. Often the Insurance requirement may require Dual Instruction from an Insurance Approved Instructor. In some cases new Twin Cessna Owners and Jerry Temple have flown to a Simcom facility directly from the Pre-Purchase Examination facility or after post-sale maintenance has been completed. Jerry and the new Twin Cessna Owner go through the respective course as “stick-buddies”. Upon completion of the Simcom Course, the new Owner may now be Insurance Qualified to fly the aircraft, or may still require additional “Dual” and Delivery Support. Situations vary and Jerry Temple Aviation (JTA) works with customers to support their needs. Underwriters have always approved JTA’s Twin Cessna Training Syllabus for Twin Cessna Training.


For Twin Cessna Owners that did not purchase their Twin Cessna through the professional services of JTA, or for Buyers soon expecting to purchase a Twin Cessna, Jerry Temple is able (approximately two to three times per year) to provide similar “Simcom Training and Delivery Support”. Such service is based upon schedule opportunities and needed training.


Having Jerry Temple as your “stick-buddy” provides the new Owner with forty years of Twin Cessna experience plus thousands of hours of flight experience, most of which is in Twin Cessnas. The extra tutoring at breakfast, lunch, etc., plus more than anything else benefiting from Jerry’s classroom explanations, simulator help, comments or stories, provides the new Twin Cessna Owner with an extra special training experience.


The requirements for Jerry Temple to attend Simcom with a new Twin Cessna Owner are:

  • The customer must not have previously attended Simcom and must not be currently scheduling training with Simcom.
  • The customer must possess a valid FAA Pilot Certificate with M/E and Instrument Ratings and have a Current Medical Certificate.
  • Costs/Expenses for Jerry Temple to attend Simcom Training with a customer will be reviewed and confirmed in writing. This avoids misunderstandings.


“Delivery Support “ is defined as flying the aircraft to Orlando, FL, Dallas area or Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ from a specific location and/or second flight to fly the aircraft from a Simcom location to the aircraft’s new home base or other specific location.




For current, or soon to be Twin Cessna Owners, interested in attending Simcom Training with Jerry Temple as a training “stick-buddy” and perhaps also providing Delivery Support, call Jerry Temple Aviation to discuss Jerry Temple’s schedule availability and your training needs. If you believe you may want JTA’s Simcom Attendance Program, then DO NOT call Simcom, even just to chat.
