Applicants should be aware that although we will consider 15 year old students for the Cadet Aviation Ground School, the FAA does not permit solo powered flight under the age of 16.
We have need of a staff, primarily instructors, who will be experienced pilots who also possess good platform skills and most of whom will be appropriately rated high time current or former military or civilian pilots. While preferring those who can serve the full term; part-timers will be considered should the need arise. A CAP Driver’s qualification is highly desirable.
There will also be opportunities for a few older cadets or former cadets who will typically have at least 100 to 200 hours PIC and who have earned or be working on their Instrument rating or higher.
The exact number of staff required will depend on the number of participants accepted, in the ratio of 2 instructors per 12/15 students.
To apply, use link on left and include the "Staff Biography Form." Upload in lieu of a resume.
This school uses materials based on section 61.105 of the FAA's
regulations and prepares the attendee to take the FAA Private Pilot Written Exam.
This is not a Summer Encampment, but an intense academic experience, led by instructors who are high-time current and former commercial and military pilots. Students will be expected to immerse themselves in individual and group study throughout the course. and Individual coaching will be available throughout the school. Anyone unwilling to make this commitment should not apply!
All questions used during the course are taken from the current FAA question bank and the focus is on preparing the student to pass the FAA written exam, but we do not administer the FAA Exam itself.
We strongly recommend that students who pass this course should immediately find their nearest FAA testing location and register to take the official exam while the knowledge is fresh.
Completion of a sample lesson is required as part of all student applications, in addition to which a short pre-course program will be expected before you arrive. Uniform will be tee shirt (issued), tan slacks or shorts and black shoes or sneakers. Military or other organizational uniform will not be required. A complete equipment list will be distributed as students are accepted.
