Student Pilot License
The FAA has changed the regulations for the issuance of Student Pilot Certificates. Before April 1, 2016 the Student Pilot Certificate was issued on the back of the FAA Medical. Student Pilot Certificates are required for Solo Flights during the Private Pilot Training.
Starting April 1, 2016 the Student Pilot Certificates can be issued by a Florida Flyers representative or Florida Flyers Flight Instructor using the FAA online system IACRA. However, the application will now be vetted by TSA before the Student Pilot Certificate may be issued.
This process can take 4 weeks or more. Therefore, it is highly recommended to apply for the Student Pilot Certificate right after submitting your Enrollment to us.
