Why Chose an FAA Part 61 School?


Training at an FAA Part 61 school, as opposed to a Part 141 school, offers some distinct advantages and may be a better fit for certain individuals and situations. FAA Part 61 and Part 141 refer to different sets of regulations that govern flight training in the United States. 

Here are some reasons why someone might choose to train at an FAA Part 61 school:


  1. Flexibility: Part 61 schools offer more flexibility in terms of curriculum and scheduling. There are no strict requirements for the number of flight hours or training sessions, which can be beneficial for students who have irregular schedules or prefer to learn at their own pace.

  2. Customized Training: Part 61 schools can tailor training programs to meet individual student needs. Instructors have more flexibility to adapt to a student’s progress and focus on areas where they may need additional training.

  3. Cost: Part 61 training can be more cost-effective for some students. Since there are no mandated minimum flight hours, students can progress at their own pace, potentially reducing the total cost of training.

  4. Career Goals: Part 61 training is often chosen by individuals who are pursuing aviation as a hobby or are seeking specific types of flight training, such as advanced ratings or endorsements, that may not be covered by a Part 141 program.

  5. Location: Part 61 flight schools can be found in a wider range of locations, making it more convenient for students who do not live near a Part 141 school.

  6. Personalized Attention: Some students prefer the one-on-one attention they can receive at a Part 61 school. With fewer students in each class, instructors may have more time to dedicate to individual students.

  7. Transition Training: Part 61 schools can be a good option for experienced pilots looking to transition to new aircraft types or receive recurrent training.
