FAA-Approved Part 141 & Part 61 Options
Silverhawk Aviation Academy is the only FAA-approved Part 141 Helicopter 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. In addition, Veteran benefits and some financial aid programs qualify under Part 141.
It is possible to learn under Part 61 rules. Training under Part 61 can offer more flexibility in lesson content and sequence.
Since Part 61 and Part 141 requirements vary, we will enroll you in the program that suits your financial needs.
