FAA-APPROVED OPTIONS

Part 141 & Part 61

Silverhawk Aviation Academy is an FAA-approved Part 141 flight school in Idaho. Part 141 schools are audited regularly by the FAA and must have an FAA-approved syllabus and course of study. We are subject to performance rates to maintain authorization to train under Part 141. In addition, Veteran’s benefit (VA) eligibility and some financial aid programs qualify only under Part 141.

 

It is also possible to learn under Part 61 rules. Training under Part 61 can offer more flexibility in lesson content and sequence, which can be beneficial for part-time students.  

 

* Since Part 61 and Part 141 requirements vary, we will enroll you in the program that suits your financial needs.
