Default Instruction needed in RV14 for Insurance

My insurance company is requiring I get five hours instruction in an RV14 before insuring me for flying mine solo.

Can someone recommend an instructor with an RV14 who might provide that instruction?

I estimate my RV14 will be ready for first flight in February 2022. My home airport is Camarillo, CA. I have 414 hours of tailwheel time, and just over 10K flight hours total.

Sorry, I don't have an answer, but I do have a question. How many hours minimum is your insurance wanting?

Go back to the main page this site. Look on the left side and youíll see a list of topics. Find ďTransition Training.Ē

The Vans website also has information about transition training as well.

I flew my RV-14 transition training with Mike Seager in Oregon. In October 2019, he used the Vanís prototype for this. Try to choose a month when there will actually be some VFR conditions to fly in. Call him when itís not good flying weather. He kind of flies all the time. I was very happy with the training experience and Mikeís teaching style in this plane.

Agree - I flew with Mike for my -14A transition training; he is fantastic as many can attest. In April he had about a 5mo. wait list, so hopefully that has subsided some.

my insurance company allowed for 5 hrs training in similar type.... RV7 training for RV9 first flight and not required to have an instructor, just 5 hrs PIC. I needed to ask the insurance company for this permission and my log book was signed off for the 5 hrs PIC by the RV7 pilot.

Is there any other answer than Mike Seager? I just did 5hrs with him a couple weeks ago in N214VA and will be doing another 5 when Iím ready to fly my plane.
