James Duan being congratulated for completing his Private Pilot Check ride in his Cirrus Turbo by Ken Goble, Cirrus Regional Sales Director for Southern California.
James ordered his new Cirrus Turbo as a non-pilot with zero hours in August, 2010. He took delivery of his beautiful Red and White two-tone Turbo at Cirrus World Headquarters 5 weeks later in late September, 2010. After returning to California he started his flight training in N369JD with Cirrus Standardized Instructor, Ryan Farr. James had to halt his training for a few weeks to travel to China on business. After returning, he flew his Cirrus Turbo every day and successfully passed his Private Pilot Check-ride on December 3, 2010… from zero time to Private Pilot in less than 90 days, all in his Cirrus Turbo, with a 6 week business trip to China thrown in… Congratulations James!
