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
Preparing for and taking the Knowledge Tests
Suggested Study Materials
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.
