Flight Training Prerequisites

FAA, ICAO and TSA for All Trainee Pilots

All of our dedicated training King Airs are N-registered (USA). To act as Pilot-In-Command (a.k.a. PIC) the pilot must hold a valid FAA pilot certificate (private, commercial or ATP) with a multiengine rating, a high-performance endorsement (FAR Part 61.31(f)), a complex aircraft endorsement (FAR Part 61.31(e)), a high-altitude endorsement (FAR Part 61.31(g)), a valid Biennial Flight Review (FAR Part 61.56) and a current FAA Medical Certificate (1st, 2nd or 3rd class).

An instrument rating is not essential, but highly recommended. Instrument currency (FAR Part 61.57(c)) is also not critical and can be achieved during training.
