High Performance Endorsement

A high-performance airplane is one with an engine that is greater than 200hp. These airplanes are typically more capable and require specific training to understand the unique characteristics of the high-performance engine and systems.

Engine and airplane management is an extremely important skill to perfect. This allows the pilot to operate airplanes that travel fast, or be able to carry heavy loads, or fly in extreme environments.

The high performance is an endorsement process and has no specific flight time requirements. The process typically takes 5 to 10 flight hours. This will have to be done in the owner's plane.
