STUDENT RESOURCES | WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO GET THROUGH FLIGHT TRAINING

Whether you’re learning to fly for the first time, building time, or working towards an advanced endorsement, Precision has numerous amenities that will help prepare you for success. Our team of coordinators and advisors have extensive experience in working with numerous students with different goals, and we are here to make your journey as smooth and financially beneficial as possible.

FLIGHT TRAINING COURSE MATERIALS

Every course is going to require its own set of study materials. While most of the materials can be acquired from the FAA’s website, there are some additional texts and equipment that will prepare you for your career in the aviation industry.

GET YOUR FAA MEDICAL CERTIFICATE

Before starting your helicopter or airplane flight training career, it’s always a good idea to get your medical certificate. While your medical isn’t required until you solo the aircraft, the FAA is the ultimate decision maker on whether you are capable of flying or not. If you are undergoing the flight training program with Klamath Community College, or utilizing your veteran’s benefits, you will be required to obtain a Second Class Medical Certificate. All other forms of training will require a third class Medical Certificate. The cost of the examination is generally between $150-$250.

THAT BEING SAID, WELCOME TO OREGON: IT’S ABOUT THE JOURNEY AS MUCH AS THE DESTINATION

We can try to show the magnitude of a mountain vista or the quiet bliss of a hot spring. But truth is, you really have to be here to get it. Made up of seven diverse regions, Oregon has the ocean, mountains, valleys, high desert, cities, small towns, and almost everything in between.

We realize life is to be lived beyond the cockpit. Monthly Taco Tuesday give students and employees a chance to make friends and network over food and drinks. We enjoy our mission here. We approach work with a high play drive and believe the right attitude brightens the day and boosts productivity.
