REFLECTOR: Re: Flight Time Before Velocity?

In additon to meeting the minimum medical and flight proficiency items
spelled in the FAR's - I would suggest five (5) hours of low wing, single
engine, high performance (ie. Mooney, PA-28R) time ... within a 30 day
period prior to attending Velocity's formal ground/flight transition
training program.  Concentrate on traffic pattern operations (versus stalls
and commercial flight maneuvers).  If you come to the Velocity program
prepared in this way, you should feel comfortable flying Velocity aircraft
in as little as four (4) hours of dual instruction.

should have before transitioning to the velocity??
