During your orientation or discovery flight, you must be able to provide Check6Air with proof of U.S. citizenship. This can be in the form of either a valid U.S. passport or birth certificate and government issued photo I.D. Your instructor will make copies of these for our records. If you are not a U.S. citizen, please reach out to us prior to scheduling.
All non-US citizens must submit an application with the TSA prior to starting flight training.
Getting started, he or she must obtain a student pilot certificate (IACRA), as well as a minimum third class medical endorsed by a certified Aviation Medical Examiner (AME). Both of these will be required to fly an aircraft solo, so it is a good idea to ensure students qualify medically prior to any in-depth flight or ground training.
Both students and certified pilots must show a satisfactory level of knowledge and skill with one of our instructors, prior to renting an aircraft for solo or personal use. The checkout form and pre-solo test will be required by all certified pilots. Students and CFI's may also download the Private Pilot Checklist.
