Flight Training Coursework

Priority for flight slots is based on a variety of factors, with the primary factor being the current rating(s) held by the student.  Priority will then be based on the timely submission of the completed scheduling form along with all documents required to begin flight training.   These documents must be submitted during the first week of classes in order to be considered timely.  All students will receive an email from the scheduler prior to the start of each semester as to the required documentation and detailing the process for submitting these items.  Please email the Flight Scheduler or call him at (660)543-8381 for additional information.

IMPORTANT!

If you need to change your class schedule, please contact the Flight Scheduler or call him at (660)543-8381 to advise of the change and to verify whether or not the change will affect your flight slot.
