We get this question all the time so here are our Top 10 suggestions - 1) Call and plan a visit to meet us & check out our school. Look at the airplanes you will fly. 2) Take a Discovery Flight if you have never flown before - ensure you like flying! 3) Now, schedule your first dual lesson (dual means you, the instructor, aircraft and fuel). You have two choices - the Cessna 152 or 172. If your over 6'1" and 210 lbs, go for the 172. 4) Bring your passport or birth certificate for proof of citizenship to first lesson. This is a TSA requirement. We'll also get a copy of another photo I.D. 5) Purchase these two FAA books from us for $38 and begin studying for the FAA knowledge test. Airplane Flying Handbook (FAA-H-8083-3) and Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge (FAA-H-8083-25) . The written exam must be passed prior to your checkride. (Or you can download them for freefrom the FAA's website) 6) Enroll in "IACRA",(Integrated Airman Certification and Rating Application). This is Step 1 only for obtaining the student pilot certificate which you need prior to soloing. iacra.faa.gov/IACRA Register for a login and password and receive your "FTN" FAA Tracking number. Carefully record your login, password and FTN - now log off. The remaining steps must be accomplished face to face with your validating instructor. Bring this information with you to one of your first lessons. 7) Schedule your 3rd class medical with a local DME. Also must have prior to soloing (see Flight Training Info page for Designated Medical Examiner names). 8) Visit AOPA.org. for financing options. 9) Create a game plan and focus on your goal. 10) Now -Start flying and hanging out with us at the airport!
