11/24/04 - FAA COMMUNICATES SP STUDENT CERTIFICATE PROCEDURES TO FLIGHT STANDARDS STAFF

Several EAA members called EAA headquarters this week to report being denied sport pilot student pilot certificates after FAA announced last week that the certificates were available. EAA’s government relations staff immediately notified FAA headquarters of the situation. On Tuesday, November 23, FAA placed a teleconference call to U.S. flight standards managers and briefed them on the new procedures. They also asked the managers to let their staffs know that they are allowed to issue sport pilot student pilot certificates through their facilities. FAA will follow up the conference call with a written directive/notice to all flight standards staff early next week. Those wishing to obtain a student pilot certificate, based on the standard student pilot information contained in FAA Order 8710.0, may now do so by completing form 8710-1, which is available on the FAA website. Once completed, prospective student pilots can submit the application to a local FSDO inspector or to a designated pilot examiner (DPE).
