Accreditation

Our flight education program is approved under the FAR Part 141 requirements.

What is an approved FAR part 141 Flight School?

Part 141 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) are related to the structure and approval of flight schools. Training under Part 141 regulations is permitted only by instructors associated with an FAA-approved flight school. In order to become approved, a flight school must meet certain requirements and submit each curriculum it wishes to have approved to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for review. Part 141 approved schools are subject to regular surveillance audits by the FAA and must meet minimum pass rates on the practical exams. These requirements ultimately result in a safer and higher quality flight education for the students.
