Student Pilot Certificate

You do not need a Student Pilot Certificate to begin your training; however, you must have one before you can fly solo.  In order to be eligible for a Student Pilot Certificate, you must be at least 16 years old and able to read, speak and understand English.

How do I get a Student Pilot Certificate?

You must set up an appointment with an American Winds Certified Flight Instructor to complete the Integrated Airman Certification and Rating Application (IACRA). There is a $25 application fee.

American Winds will process your application and submit the required documents to the Airmen Certification Branch. Once reviewed by Airman Certification Branch, the Student Pilot Certificate will be mailed to the address provided by you on the application within approximately three weeks.
