FAA Issues New Student Pilot Rules

The FAA website has not posted the new rules which go into effect in April.

Student pilots will no longer get their student pilot certificate from an aviation medical examiner. Instead, they can apply in person at a FSDO, through a designated pilot examiner, with a Part 141 flight school or a CFI. The TSA will vet the application, and then a plastic certificate will be sent to the student by the Civil Aviation Registry. Student pilots still will have to visit an AME to acquire a separate medical certificate. The new rule takes effect April 1.
