All our courses have received FAA approval under CFR 14, FAR Part 141. Part 141 syllabuses provide a building block learning structure for our students and a better guideline for our instructors. With proven results our FAA approved syllabuses cover five core areas of successful flight and ground training program. Aeronautical Knowledge, Flying Skill, Pilot Resource Management, Training Standards, and Communication.
Our training programs are designed to keep in mind airline standard operating procedures. From day one we want our students to be in a mindset of becoming an airline pilot, and so our syllabuses, SOP's, and checklist are designed on airline practices. Our focus on Aeronautical Knowledge, Flying Skill, Pilot Resource Management, Training Standards, and Communication Skills leads our students to be professional and successful airline pilots.
95% of our graduates are hired and flying for airlines in the USA, Taiwan, China, India, South Korea, Cambodia, UAE, Philippines, and many other countries. Due to our well-designed training syllabuses, SOP's, and maintaining high standards for training and flight checks, our 90% pass rate with the FAA demonstrates our standards and quality. These standards groom our students to demonstrate professionalism and crew resource management.
We are one of the very few flight schools that have a FAA Pilot Examiner in the same building as the flight school. This allows our school to schedule FAA practical tests with minimum waiting times, unlike other schools which often wait months. We also have an approved FAA knowledge test testing center. Our students do not have to travel to take their knowledge tests, which saves additional time, money, and stress.
All our aircraft are maintained and inspected by our FAA approved aircraft repair station. Our Director of Maintenance is also an IA (Inspection Authorization) and all our mechanics are FAA certified mechanics. We are also a Cessna Authorized Service Center which benefits us in getting parts overnight as well as guidance from Cessna as we fly only Cessna 172 R/S models aircraft.
Student housing is located close to the flight academy. It is a gated community with a common recreational area, gym, and pool. The subway train (BART) station is walking distance from the housing. Also, shopping areas and Concord downtown are walking distance. We provide a daily shuttle bus free of cost three times a day to pick up and drop off our students. Each unit has a full operating kitchen and washer and dryer.
