For veteran members of the flying community this seems like a simple question with a simple answer. But for
the “uninitiated,” the task can seem overwhelming. Where do I start? Who do I ask? What should I do? All these
questions and more are answered in the FAA’s new Student Pilot Guide (FAA-H-8083-27A, effective 2006).
Before beginning flight training, it is important to have a basic understanding of the responsibilities, safety
regulations, and other issues you will face including the choice of a flight school, selecting study materials,
study habits, and the role of the instructor, student, and FAA. The Student Pilot Guide lays out for prospective
student pilots and those already engaged in flight training, in “how to” fashion, the general procedures for
obtaining student pilot, sport pilot, recreational pilot, and private pilot certificates.
Answers for a student pilot’s most frequently asked questions, including:
- • The Role of the Instructor
- • What Flight Training Requires
- • The Instructor and Student Relationship
- • Medical Requirements
- • Preparing for and taking the Knowledge Tests
- • Suggested Study Materials
- • and more!
- This handy guide makes a great resource for flight schools and flight instructors, as an inexpensive tool to
help cement the relationship between prospective students and your services. It is also perfect for pilot shops.
