FAA Documents

FAA Documents

  •     FAA Practical Test Standards Documents This is a PDF document
        When students take a Checkride (Practical Test) for a new Pilot Certificate or Rating, the examiner does not randomly select the tasks they are asked to perform. The tasks are clearly defined in the appropriate FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS) book. The PTS is an agreement between the student, their examiner and the FAA on exactly what they can be tested on and the criteria the examiner will use to determine if they meet the standard. At the linked page you will find the current PTS books for the most common Certificates and Ratings.
  • FAR/AIM and NTSB Online Repository

    Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) - Rules prescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) governing all aviation activities in the United States. The FARs are part of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). A wide variety of activities are regulated, such as aircraft design and maintenance, typical airline flights, pilot training activities, hot-air ballooning, lighter-than-air aircraft, man-made structure heights, obstruction lighting and marking, and even model rocket launches, model aircraft operation, and kite flying. The rules are designed to promote safe aviation, protecting pilots, flight attendants, passengers and the general public from unnecessary risk.

    Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM) - This manual contains the fundamentals required in order to fly legally in the country of origin. It also contains items of interest to pilots concerning health and medical facts, factors affecting flight safety, a pilot/controller glossary of terms used in the ATC System, and information on safety, accident, and hazard reporting. Although the AIM is not regulatory in nature, parts of it re-state and amplify federal regulations.

    NTSB Part 830 - Notification and Reporting of Aircraft Accidents or Incidents and Overdue Aircraft, and Preservation or Aircraft Wreckage, Mail, Cargo, and Records. This part gives you the rules to follow if you are involved in an aircraft accident or incident.

Online FIRCs for Airplane and Helicopter CFIs—
Have it Your Way with Electives!


  Customize your FIRC for what interests you most by selecting from a set of electives. The FAA has allowed us to move away from covering the same old topics that you learned as a private pilot and delve into areas that will be more interesting, relevent and sometimes provocative. Electives are drawn from hot topics in flight training, including valuable subjects such as teaching smart tablet use in the cockpit, using flight simulation to help pilots learn, and teaching icing survival.

Hassle-free Renewal—Nothing to send in

  KING Airplane and Helicopter FIRCs incorporate a paperwork-free, completely online renewal process. You will be able to complete the renewal requirements online and you will receive your temporary certificate by email.
