PA46 Matrix and Mirage Flight Training


Note: Training is carried out in the owner's aeroplane.




The aim of the course is to provide ground and flight instruction to a trainee to satisfy EASA Part-FCL 'Differences' training in order to allow a pilot to act as pilot-in-command on the piston series of PA46, which currently includes the Malibu, Matrix and Mirage.


Pre-entry requirements


  • Be at least 17 years of age

  • Be in possession of a Class One (or Two) medical certificate before training commences

  • Hold at least an EASA PPL(A)

  • Hold a valid SEP Class Rating (Land)*


*Oysterair can renew an expired SEP Class Rating (Land) during flight training if required.




The PA-46 Matrix and Mirage training syllabus includes the following:


  • Online theory course

  • Online progress test

  • 5 hours flight training

  • Logbook endorsement 




The training takes approximately 3 days to complete including briefings. The first day is completed via our online learning management system which means you can complete the majority of your theoretical knowlegde training at home, during a lunch break, etc. When you arrive for your flight training we will first complete a 2 hour brush up session prior to starting flight training. There is no Licence Skill Test at the end of the course, however, the instructor must endorse your logbook stating that proficiency has been reached. In our experience, 5 hours is the minimum amount of flight training required for an average PPL holder with approximately 200 hours to achieve proficiency; additional training may be required for a less experienced pilot.


ICAO Conversions


If you are a current PA46 pilot operating on the basis of an ICAO licence (e.g. FAA) Oysterair can assist you in gaining an EASA licence and SEP Class Rating (Land). There is no standard training package for a conversion as the requirements will depend on your experience and qualifications, therefore please contact us for more information.
