Default Transition Training Near Dallas, TX

Anybody know of someone willing to do transition training near Dallas, Tx? I'm going to look at an RV-6 this weekend and insurance wants me to have a checkout prior to solo operations.

Too bad it isn't an A model, otherwise I would have a name for you.

Yeah, unfortunately my insurance requires a signoff from a CFI with 25 hours in the same MAKE/MODEL.

Default Near Houston ...

Bruce Bohannon in Angleton TX (just South of Houston) can help you if you can use your new purchase to do the training. He is well reviewed here on VAF (use search). I had a great experience and learned a lot from him.

My insurance accepted 5 hours in a 10 for my coverage in my 9A - you might ask again. I flew my time with Alex Dedominicis in Dallas, but I understand he's out of the area on work now and no longer available.

Tom Woodward is in DFW and is a good transition CFI.

David Austin is in Denton and is also a good transition CFI.
