What To Know

Understanding Part 61 Flight School

ActivePILOT Flight Academy takes pride in being a Part 61 flight school. Part 61 refers to a set of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations that outline the requirements for pilot training. While Part 141 schools have a more structured curriculum, Part 61 schools offer a more flexible training approach. ActivePILOT's Part 61 status ensures that students receive comprehensive flight training that adheres to FAA regulations while allowing for personalized instruction tailored to individual learning styles and progress.
Why ActivePILOT Can't Issue I-20 Flight Training Visas?
It's essential to note that ActivePILOT's status as a Part 61 flight school influences its ability to issue I-20 Student Flight Training Visas. I-20 forms are required for obtaining F-1 student flight training visas, allowing international students to study in the United States. However, Part 61 schools are not authorized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to issue I-20 forms, as these schools don't follow a structured curriculum with set course durations.
