Hello, my insurance would like me to get transition training from a CFI with at least 25hrs in the t18. If you know of anyone in the southern Wisconsin or northern Illinois region that may qualify then please let me know. Any help is appreciated.

I own a T18 based at KUES, love it, fly it all the time. I am not a CFI. I am looking around right now.

I think there used to be a CFI with Thorp experience at KENW. I was trying to get a chance to fly with someone there when I bought mine. It didn’t pan out for me but there was at least one other Thorp on the field.

I realize it's not ideal, but I may be willing to fly commercially from PDX to you. Email me if interested so we can discuss: phmand -at- gmail. Please email as opposed to responding here, easier to communicate that way.

Status update:
The insurance quote was through AOPA and the quote I received required me to find an instructor with 25hrs in type and if I could not find anybody then find somebody suitable and fill out a form to submit to the underwriters for approval.

The flight instructor that I felt was well qualified for the transition training gave me the broker he uses who has all his info on file.
Not only was my flight instructor approved for the policy (add on to the policy) but the yearly savings appears to be around $500 for the year with nearly identical coverage with the only difference that nobody else is allowed to fly this aircraft except the noted instructor and myself. Hopefully the scheduling works out.
