The East Coast IFR Experience: Doug Stewart offers several IFR training trips designed to give pilots an intense and thorough exposure to flying in the IFR system. His longest is the East Coast Experience (ECIE). It starts in New England at Columbia County Airport (1B1) in Hudson, NY and heads south all the way to Florida before turning around and flying up the east coast all the way to Bangor, Maine before returning to Columbia County. Before the five-day trip is over pilots will have flown some of the most challenging approaches and flying conditions available anywhere in the country. Community Aviation recorded the entire trip with Doug and his trainee so you have a seat at a fraction of the cost. This exciting course is available to NAFI members at a substantial discount of $70 off the original price of $148! Click Here for the discount code- available until 5/31/20.  Input code at program checkout.
