Proof of citizenship (or TSA approval) is required before the second flight. Flight training may begin at any time and scheduling is completely up to the student. Students may deviate from the syllabus as needed, although we typically follow the same syllabus to acquire a Pilot Certificate.
A biennial flight review (BFR) is required of pilots to maintain currency within a 24 month period. It is required regardless of hours or age. A medical certificate is required to complete a BFR at PFTC. It must be at least one hour flight and one hour ground, but may be longer based on the instructor’s discretion. We schedule a four hour block for BFRs. It can be on two separate days, but must be completed by same instructor! Here are some links to help your BFR go as smoothly as possible!
