CFI in intermountain west area

Hi all,

I'm looking for a CFI who can give me an IPC in a new-to-me 337 sometime next week somewhere in the intermountain west area. I'm getting the 337 in UT and flying it to NM.

I have over 1000 hours in pressurized cabin class twins and I'm current and proficient. I'm reasonably familiar with the avionics in the new 337 (it matches my panel from 7 years ago.) My insurance just wants one single IPC in a 337 from an instructor who meets the following criteria:

1500+ hrs total
500+ hrs multi
25+ hrs 337

Anyone know anyone?

For you flatlanders: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intermountain_West

If anyone knows of any other 337 CFIs in the southwest, let me know. I have two "students" that need to be trained. I say "students" because they're both ME CFIIs (one is a USAFWS Instructor) but they have no 337 time.

The insurance company wants them to have some dual 337 time, but the dual can only be given by an instructor with 25+ hours in a 337.

Ben's fine, but he's not local.

Boris is a good guy. I introduced him to 337s a few years ago
