Cessna Pilot Centers gain FAA approval for new training course

Four Cessna Pilot Centers are the first training schools to gain approval from the FAA under Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 141 to use Cessna’s new Sport/Private Pilot Course in their private pilot certificate training programs.

The Cessna Pilot Centers gaining approval are: Air Fleet Training Systems Inc., Fairfield, N.J.; Snohomish Flying Service, Snohomish, Wash.; Trade Winds Aviation (dba for Skyworks Inc.), San Jose, Calif.; and Pensacola Aviation Center, Pensacola, Fla. Many other Cessna Pilot Centers are also in the approval process to add the course to their training programs, company officials said.

Cessna developed the new Sport/Private Pilot Course in association with King Schools of San Diego and released it to Cessna Pilot Centers in September after qualifying it for FAR Part 141 approval.
