Course Description

An eighteen-week course demonstrating techniques to evaluate fixed wing aircraft and helicopters for FAA/EASA Part 23/25/27/29 certification. The course contains the projected Category 2 training requirements. Training includes flight time in various aircraft/helicopters.  Performance, flying qualities and the accompanying FAA certification procedures are emphasized.

Depending on the customers needs the course can be taken in one of three options: A fixed wing aircraft track that includes light / medium propeller and jet aircraft; A rotary wing track that includes single/multi engine helicopters; and a light aircraft track that only utilizes propeller aircraft under 2000kg.

The course includes six mandatory modules over the eighteen weeks plus an optional, but highly recommended, three-week modern flight controls module can be added. Students will attend academic classes with NTPS Professional Course students. This course is approved for fifteen credit hours towards a Master of Science degree program from the National Flight Test Institute.
