Flight Training Resources – Part 61

To Start Flight Training

Now that you have decided to train with Infinite Air Center, there are a few things we require to get started.  It is best to fill out the Application forms below and bring it in.  If you have any questions or need further clarification, please don’t hesitate to call us at 541.730.3345

What to Expect

Once you fill out the necessary your information, please call us or email us at thann@InfiniteAirCenter.com so that we can schedule a time for you to come in and meet the Certified Flight Instructor assigned to you.  It is highly recommended that you communicate and meet your new Flight Instructor to be certain there will not be any unforeseen problems such as personality clash, hygiene (seriously), or any other factors.

Once you start training, we recommend that you stay with your Flight Instructor as each instructor teaches differently and have vastly different expectations on maneuvers, knowledge, punctuality, etc.  While it is possible to switch Instructors, it might mean that you will spend a bit of time getting the new Instructor acquainted with your abilities and knowledge.

Your Flight Instructor will abide by King Schools Syllabus.  Even if you are using our Part 61 Program, a common Syllabus is a useful tool and all of our Instructors are encouraged to use King Syllabus with their students.  It also gives you, the student, an idea of what is expected in the next lesson and gives you a chance to study and practice before the flight lesson.

For best results, we recommend that you take flying lessons at least 3 times a week.  Even short flight lessons enforces learning as most of flying involves muscle memory and memorization of checklist items.  With consistent lessons per week, you are assured of not having to re-learn what you were taught before.

Your First Day

On your First Day of lesson, your Flight Instructor will sit down with you, go over your documentation and go on FAA’s website where you will have to fill in some security information.  All new students must prove their citizenship by providing either a passport or birth certificate.  If you are not a US Citizen, we will have to get approval from TSA to train you so please let us know if you are not a US Citizen so that we can get the ball rolling.

After the information has been submitted to the FAA, your Flight Instructor will sit down and go over the basics of flight, quiz you on your initial knowledge, and find out a little more about you.  This step is necessary to gauge how to best train you as everyone learns differently.

After this brief interview, your Instructor will show you the proper Pre-Flight walkaround procedure where a physical check of aircraft condition is performed to assure airworthiness.
