Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to start flying before I enroll?

    No, you can start your ground training any time! Some folks even prefer to finish ground school before they begin flight lessons.

  • Is this course Part 141 approved?

    No, we operate under Part 61. But we work closely with students at many 141 programs to supplement their coursework.

  • Do you offer a Veteran’s Discount?

    We sure do! Vets can get 10% off on any course or subscription when they send a copy of their military ID to info@flightapprentice.com

    We’re incredibly thankful for the service of all veterans, and for the mentorship we’ve received from so many active and former military pilots through the years.

    Our courses are designed to make this easy! You can message your course instructor directly, or ask your classmates in the classroom forum. Our team is here for you.
