To whom it may concern,

Pursuant to the clarification of requirement to identify specific required training time and mandatory fees, the FAWs state an IHL is free to choose any amount of training within limits of what is "generally accepted as necessary to fulfill requirements for the attainment of a predetermined and identified education,  professional, or vocational objective".

We calculated the average billable hours for each course. The averages are from January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021 for all students who completed a course. The population did not include students who were building time to meet predetermined requirements for a contract. The hours for the course in the Daytona Beach catalog are as follows:

Also required is the cost per hour for each resource. Resource rates are available to all flight students via a report generated on demand through ETA, the flight management system. Resource rates are subject to discounts throughout the school year. The resource rates are also subject to change every fiscal year. The resource rates and discounts apply to all students regardless of their VA status. Exceptions are for employees, dependents, and spouses, which are subject to a pre-determined discounted rate determined by the University. The resources requiring fuel fluctuate with the current cost per gallon of fuel. The report mentioned above reflects the cost per hour of fuel and stated on the report as a resource surcharge. Students are charged the same fuel rate. Fuel rates are not discounted and are calculated for each aircraft type, corresponding fuel used, along with a standard fuel flow per hour. Fuel rates typically fluctuate on a weekly basis.

As of March 2022, the resource rates per hour are as follows:

Resource  Cost
 Cessna 172 Nav 3 $138 
 Diamond DA-42 VI $294 
Resource Cost
 Oral Instruction  $73
 Resource  Cost
 Frasca G1000  $96
 Frasca DA42-VI  $139
 Frasca AdvATD  $39
 Frasca AdvATD 172  $73
 Frasca CRJ $397
 Frasca CRJ200 $576
