Getting Started Checklist
Contact us to schedule your orientation, which will include a detailed audit of your pilot logbook. All orientations are conducted and billed as regular ground instruction. During the orientation your instructor will:
- Collect your proof of U.S. Citizenship (or, if you are not a citizen, review and make copies of your passport and VISA)
- Review all Holladay Aviation policies and procedures.
- Schedule your first lesson.
Gather proof of U.S. citizenship: unexpired U.S. Passport, or a U.S. birth certificate. If you are not a citizen, you must submit an application to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and obtain authorization to train. We’ll also need a copy of your driver’s license.
Download and review the latest version of the FAA Airman Certification Standards.
Purchase the Sporty’s Commercial Pilot Test Prep Course
Make sure your FAA medical certificate is up to date. If you intend on pursuing employment as a pilot immediately after completion of your Commercial Pilot training, you will need at least a Second Class medical. We recommend a First Class medical.
