For veteran members of the flying community, the question "How do I get a
Pilot's License?" seems to have a simple answer. But for the uninitiated, it is
a task that can seem overwhelming.
Before beginning flight training, it is important to have a basic
understanding of the responsibilities, safety regulations, and other issues you
will face, including the choice of a flight school, selecting study materials,
study habits, and the role of the instructor, student, and Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA). This guide lays out for prospective student pilots and for
those already engaged in flight training, in "how to" fashion, the general
procedures for obtaining FAA student pilot, sport pilot, recreational pilot, and
private pilot certificates.
Answers a student pilot's most frequently asked questions including:
- The Role of the Instructor
- What Flight Training Requires
- Instructor and Student Relationship
- Medical Requirements
- Preparing for and taking the Knowledge Tests
- Suggested Study Materials
- And More.
The Student Pilot Guide makes
a great resource for students, flight schools and CFIs. Provides an inexpensive
tool to help cement the relationship between prospective students and the flight
school/CFI. Softcover, 32 pages.
