The International Grumman Pilots Association
Pilot Familiarization Program
The PFP is designed to give new Grumman owners a comprehensive checkout in their new airplane from a Grumman experienced CFI.
The PFP is a "Train-to Proficiency" program, and as such, does not require any specified number of hours. Time to complete will depend on the individual pilot's background, experience, and current proficiency.
For more information, and for a referral to the PFP Instructor nearest you, or, if you are a CFI and are interested in becoming a PFP Instructor, contact the PFP Director here.
Qualifications for becoming a PFP Instructor Include:
- A current CFI certificate.
- A minimum of 25 hours PIC in Grumman light singles.
For further information, please email the AYA PFP Director here.
For further information about a possible instructor in your area, please email the AYA PFP Director here. Potential 'students' will make their own arrangements with their chosen instructor.

Cockpit Cool is a program for non-pilots who want to know more about the operation of the airplanes they frequently fly in, and would like to know what to do in case of pilot incapacitation. This free program is presented at the AYA annual convention, and consists of two hours of classroom instruction. Topics Include Basic Aircraft Control, Communication, Navigation, and Emergency Landings.
For those who wish to, we arrange a Cockpit Cool training flight with a PFP Instructor, typically in the airplane the "student" usually flies.
