You will start your flight training at Embry-Riddle in our single-engine instrument course, FA 221. You will also need to register for AS 221.
Any student who does not finish within the semester will continue in the same flight course the following semester. Refer to the Embry-Riddle Registration of Classes booklet, which lists the classes and times for the semester.
If a student arrives at Embry-Riddle with prior flight experience, typically we will evaluate the experience to see if we are able to grant training credits.
Most of the flight courses at Embry-Riddle are FAA approved under 14 CFR Part 141. Part 141 requires a much more structured training program than is usually required for general aviation training. Each course is submitted to the FAA and approved on an individual basis.
Formal ground schools are required and must be delivered in a timely manner and sequenced logically according to the associated flight training activities for that course. In return for this additional level of FAA scrutiny, Embry-Riddle can graduate students from our flight courses with less flight time than what is normally required.
This reduces the number of hours traditionally spent in an airplane, thus reducing costs to students.
After completing a flight course, you register in a flight block for the next flight course in your training track. This may be done anytime during a semester provided that pre-/co-requisites are met.
You will need to take your documentation to the Flight Scheduling Office located in the Flight Operations building, Room 115.
