WIFA 141 Programs

WIFA 141 Programs

Description

At WIFA we are pleased to offer several FAA approved Part 141 training programs.

Enrollment in an FAA-approved pilot school usually ensures a high quality of training. Approved schools must meet prescribed standards with respect to equipment, facilities, personnel, and curricula. However, individual flight instructors and training companies that are not certificated by the FAA as "pilot schools" may also offer high quality training, but find it impractical to qualify for FAA certification.

Another difference between training provided by FAA-approved pilot schools and other providers is that fewer flight hours are required to be eligible for a pilot certificate when the training is received through an approved school. The flight hour requirement for a private pilot certificate is normally 40 hours, but may be reduced to 35 hours when training with an approved school.

The Private Pilot approved course is 35 hours of classroom or ground training and 39.2 hours of flight training for a total of 72.7 hours. The flight hours consist of 5 hours of solo and 34.2 hours of dual.

The cost for the Private Pilot certificate 141 is as follows:
35 hours of classroom = $1,750.00
5 hours of solo flight = $925.00
34.2 hours of dual = $6327.00
Total is $9002.00

The Instrument Rating approved course is 30 hours of classroom (ground) training and 35 hours of flight training for a total of 65 hours. The flight hours are all dual.

The cost for the instrument rating is as follows:
30 hours ground = $1,500.00
35 hours of flight training = $6,475.00
Total is $7,975.00

The Commercial Pilot approved course is 35 hours of classroom training and 120 hours of flight training for a total of 155 hours. The flight training consist of 65 hours solo and 55 hours of dual.

The cost for the Commercial Pilot certificate is as follows:
35 hours of ground = $1,750.00
65 hours solo in a Cessna 172 = $12,025.00
20 hours dual in Arrow = $4,100.00
35 hours dual in Cessna 172 = $6,475.00
Total is $24,350.00

Each 141 student needs to be issued the TCO for the course he/she is enrolled in. The TCOs are below. For the instrument and commercial course the student will need to purchase the Jeppesen syllabus that we have for sale. In addition each student also needs to have a copy of our safety procedures manual and they need to sign a page stating that they received this manual. All 141 students will have an approved record keeping folder and this must be kept up to date.
