If you do not have a flight block scheduled, or have any questions regarding your flight block, please contact the Flight Department directly via email at coxj@erau.edu.

Please noteIf you have passed an FAA written test, please contact the Aeronautical Science Department for help with selecting the appropriate Aeronautical Science course for registration: reesej@erau.edu or taitg@erau.edu.

Things to Consider When Planning Your First Schedule

  • Students planning to register for flight courses need to bring documentation with them in order to be cleared for flight.
    • Students must bring proof of United States citizenship, if applicable. Original U.S. Birth Certificates work best. If producing a U.S. Passport or other form of documentation for citizenship, a copy of the U.S. Birth Certificate is required to verify the student’s full legal name. Birth certificate must be the original document and must be accompanied by the driver’s license or another valid, unexpired government-issued photo I.D.
    • Students with United States citizenship must produce a Government Issued picture ID (non-expired) that has their full legal name (as it appears on their birth certificate)
    • Students taking Unmanned Aircraft Systems courses will not be able to register until they present proof of US citizenship.
    • Students must have a Class I or II medical certificate (showing their full legal name) to fly at Embry-Riddle.
    • First time flight students will have the opportunity to apply for a Student Pilot Certificate once on campus.
    • The TSA requires registration of all international flight students.  Any questions regarding the requirements of the T.S.A. clearance should be directed to Jamie Cox (Coxj@erau.edu; 386-226-6383 or Justin Williams (willij43@erau.edu; 386-226-7660).
  • Those who have already earned ratings can send copies to the Admissions Office so we register you for the appropriate course. You can also fax copies of your ratings to 386-226-7070.
  • Learn about TSA regulations and view the New Flight Student Guidebook and Pre-Flight Checklist to aid you in planning for flight courses on campus. 
  • The orientation site has schedules that are updated prior to each semester. The site also has information you can use before you get to campus.
