Additional Information:

Other information to consider:

  • It is required that applicants obtain a combination FAA Airman's Medical Certificate and Student Pilot Certificate prior to beginning the Private Pilot Airplane Course. This is a requirement to fly as a solo pilot. New pilots must obtain this from an Aviation Medical Examiner. Although you may become a Private Pilot with a 3rd Class Medical, we suggest that you apply for a 1st Class, which is required to operate as an airline captain if that is your goal.
  • U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requirements Title 49 CFR Part 1552 Flight Schools require that each flight school establish citizenship of all persons receiving flight training prior to instruction. This is required for training leading to initial privileges for Single or Multiengine Airplanes, or Instrument Rating.
    • U.S. citizens must provide documents verifying citizenship. A list of these documents will be sent to you with your acceptance letter to the flight program.
    • Non-U.S. citizens must receive approval from the Transportation Security Administration prior to flight training. This is a federal government process and requires some lead time. Please contact the Lane Community College, Flight Technology Department office as early as possible so we may assist you with this process.
  • In addition, applicants who are not U.S. citizens should contact the International Programs department for college enrollment information. International students must be accepted to the college before acceptance to the Flight Technology program.
  • No flights will be dispatched until the TSA has given their approval and/or documents have been provided as proof of U.S. citizenship. To access detailed information regarding this ruling and the TSA please visit the AOPA website.
  • The Flight Training program accommodates approximately 40 students a term. Students are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date their application is received. You are encouraged to submit your application at least one term prior to your desired starting date. Aviation ground classes are open to all interested students enrolled in the college and do not require acceptance into the Flight Technology program.
  • Students are placed on the flight schedule on a first-come-first-served basis, only after:
    • TSA requirements have been met
    • Copy of FAA Medical Certificate is on file
    • You are registered for Flight Lab credits

You will be contacted regarding your enrollment status prior to the start of the term. Please notify the Flight Technology department whenever changes occur to your address or phone information so that we may update your application.
