  • About This Course

    This course will prepare students to take the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Private Pilot Written Exam. Barry Tech requires at least an FAA Class 3 Medical Certificate for any student who wishes to fly, an appointment with an FAA approved Aviation Medical Examiner (AME), and completing the required paperwork on www. medexpress.faa.gov. Students who obtain at least a 3rd Class Medical Certificate can receive flight training credited towards their Private Pilot Certificate. Aircraft flight training will be conducted at Republic Airport. This course is ideal for those students considering the pursuit of flying and non-flying aviation careers. The classroom is a training lab that is equipped with a full set of computers and multiple FM approved simulators. In addition to the individual computer stations, the classroom is also equipped with a full-motion flight simulator with a moving computer-generated panoramic visual display. The simulator is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. During student flight training, environmentally friendly aviation industry practices will be reinforced such as following published noise abatement procedures during all phases of flight when possible. Additional environmentally safe practices include the use of high-tech fuel strainers during the aircraft preflight inspection. The fuel strainers enable fuel samples to be recycled to prevent harm to Long Island’s environment. Aircraft flight training will be conducted at Republic Airport.
