Certificated Pilot SchoolA Part 141 Pilot School is one that has a valid "Air Agency Certificate" from the FAA, certifying it to conduct pilot training by following one or more approved courses.
In order to receive and maintain a Part 141 certificate, a pilot school must have its programs, practices, instructors, management, and more, reviewed and approved by the FAA. There is an initial certification as well as ongoing certification conducted by the local Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) of the FAA.
When you see the "Part 141" symbol on AirNav, it means that the pilot school affirms that it has a current Part 141 certificate, and performs pilot training according to an FAA-approved course. To check on the certificate(s) held by this flight school, or for questions about the course, please contact the school or the local FAA FSDO with jurisdiction over the pilot school.
