Student Certificate


The FAA has revised the process to obtain a student pilot's certificate and class 3 medical. Solo flight is not guaranteed at the Academy. However, without the FAA student's pilot's certificate for all students and FAA Class 3 medical for all students you can receive flight training but will not be able to solo if you meet all of the solo requirements.

The new process can take 3 to 4 weeks. Student applicants should begin the process to obtain the necessary FAA documents at the time they register. See the document "FAA Student Pilot's Certificate and Medical info" in the "Documents" section of this site describing the process to obtain the student pilot's certificate and Class 3 medical. 

This process takes some time so applicants should begin this at the time registration opens on 22 March.
