With over 65 years of experience, there is no doubt that
Snohomish Flying Service
(SFS) has earned a reputation as an industry leader successfully
training professional and competent pilots since 1945.
Flight training cost estimates are based on Federal Aviation Regulations
(FAR) Part 141 completion requirements and because SFS is a Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) approved school, the ground and flight
times required to complete are lower….saving you time and money.
Instruction is conducted
under a strictly monitored FAA approved syllabus of training with
clear objectives and completion standards; this is not the case
under unapproved FAR Part 61 flight training.
Under FAR 141, pilot instructors undertake regular flight
and ground checks with FAA Inspectors and the Helicopters used in
the training courses undergo regular FAA maintenance inspections.
An example regarding cost savings... a student completing a professional
Commercial Pilot Course under the SFS FAR 141 training program is
required to have a total time of 190 hours.
A student receiving instruction under FAR Part 61 is required
to have a total time of 250 hours.
A professional Commercial Pilot career student training at
SFS can save up to 60 hours of instructional time which translates
to a savings greater than $10,000 based on the minimum course time.
To further our commitment in a superior learning environment while
offering additional cost savings opportunities, we have invested
in the purchase of 180 acres of training land surrounding the airport.
That means the hundreds
of dollars you might spend at other schools flying to and from practice
locations can be immediately invested in your training without accruing
unnecessary flight hours traveling to and from the practice area.
Advanced students with
previously logged flight hours may qualify to receive flight hour
credit towards the advanced course of training provided the previously
logged flight hours meet the eligibility requirements under FAR
141. Students are encouraged
to constantly maintain the frequency of training as additional time
may be required if steady progression is not maintained; varied
learning abilities may also be a determining factor. Consistent
attendance enhances learning and reduces repetition of maneuvers
and ground lessons previously completed.
