Once qualified on a basic aircraft fitted with a fixed pitch propeller and a fixed landing gear pilots want to add to their skills by learning to fly a more advanced aircraft.

A typical training program for this conversion requires between 3 and 4 hours depending on each individual level of experience. After a briefing session on both the aircraft and its systems, the first flight session involves getting used to a heavier and faster aircraft.
