Welcome to Florida Pilot Center,  where learning is fun and adventurous.


Wait  Times:  Be ADVISED.

All aspiring future Pilots,  be advised that there is a delay of up-to

2 --weeks to get you a clearance before you can begin your flight training.

In other words,  you will  wait in your hotel/dormitory/apartment until

the TSA and FBI give you a go status to start flight training or Sim training.  So, plan accordingly

for an extended stay in the US.  **You may start  Ground School anytime, though.


Currently, PPL  applicants are accomplishing their training requirements in a minimum of      7 to 8 weeks,  longer times are the norm,  because of TSA & FBI Clearance processes.

And the same is true for Instrument Rating students.                                                                             ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
