    Hello everyone!

    I'm finalizing the purchase of a Turbo Lance II located in the Phoenix area. I'm looking for an instructor to do a checkout when I go pick it up next month. Can anyone recommend a CFI with time in this model or similar?

    Thanks in advance!

    -Joe

    Welcome, @TruckerJoe28 .

    I fly a Turbo Lance, and @Pilawt flies a Cherokee Six 300.

    I'm afraid, tho, other than to provide you a greeting, I don't have a good lead on a flight instructor.

    Just so I can try a little more, tho, which airport in the Valley? GYR, GEU, SDL, FFZ, other?

    Thanks for the welcome! The aircraft is finishing up its annual at FFZ. I don't mind paying for a good instructor's commute over there if they are based somewhere else in the valley, though. May as well make the most of those 3 hours required by insurance!

    I'm sending a PM, I know someone at CHD who might be able to help. If not, he can probably refer someone to you.
