|What's New In Flight Training News:
July, 2016 - The Medical Reform Bill was Passed and
Signed into Law
The details of how this will affect Student Pilots and those learning
how to fly, are still not perfectly clear. Now that the law has been
passed, it still needs to be implemented by the FAA, which should
be completed no later than July, 2017.
It does look like everyone that wants to become a pilot will still
have to obtain a valid FAA medical certificate issued by an FAA Medical
Examiner at least once. The biggest benefit seems to be that it will
be much easier for pilot's that have already completed the process
to keep flying recreationally! (Commercial and Airline pilots will
not be affected by this law and will still be required to maintain
the appropriate FAA medical certificates).
For those with minor "hiccups" in their medical history,
they will no longer need to repeat expensive and often time consuming
medical tests and submit them regularly to the FAA, so long as their
personal physician gives them a clean bill of health.
Hopefully this will encourage many that might have given up on the
dream of becoming a pilot, to get back in the plane and try to earn
June 15, 2016 - New Airman Certification Standards
(ACS), replaces the Practical Test Standards (PTS):
According to the FAA... "The ACS is an enhanced version of the
Practical Test Standards (PTS)," which were a set of rules and
maneuvers a pilot applicant had to perform on an FAA flight check
for a pilot certificate or rating.
"The new ACS adds task-specific knowledge and risk management
elements to each PTS Area of Operation and Task. The result is a comprehensive
presentation that integrates the standards for what an applicant needs
to know, consider, and do in order to pass both the private pilot
knowledge test and the practical test for a certificate or rating."

Asked Questions from our website.

For the time being, the FAA has not transferred the Commercial Pilot
PTS to the new ACS. We will try and keep this page up to date. If
you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact
April 1, 2016 - Student Pilot Certificates are issued online (no
longer by a Medical Examiner):
You must complete an application through the Integrated Airman Certification
and Rating Application (IACRA) website or by paper using FAA form
8710-1 and submit it to a Flight Standards District Office (FSDO),
an FAA-designated pilot examiner..., or a certificated flight instructor.
The authorized individual will process your application and submit
the required documents to the Airmen Certification Branch. Once,
reviewed by Airman Certification Branch, the student pilot certificate
will be mailed to the address provided by you on the application.
You should receive it within 2-3 weeks.
The biggest advantage of this new system is that they NO LONGER
EXPIRE! Another advantage is that all the required endorsements
for your flight training will be kept in one place in your pilot

website and check out their frequently asked questions.
Required Medical Certificates will still be issued by Aviation Medical
