Transfer of Credit

Students with prior flying experience may be eligible for credit towards the hourly requirement established for each FAA pilot certificate or rating. Credit that may be assigned is governed by Federal Aviation Regulation 141.77(b). Aerosim Flight Academy will accept transfer credit on a case-by-case basis. Students requesting review of any flight time, ground school, or exams for the possibility of transfer must notify their admissions representative. All requests for transfer credit must be submitted for review no later than 14 calendar days prior to the course start date; no exceptions made.

Professional Pilot Program students must complete a minimum of 25% of the program at Aerosim Flight Academy.

Once all of the above items are submitted, they will be reviewed for acceptance by the campus Registrar. Additional documents may be requested to confirm validity. Applicants will be notified of acceptance or denial in writing.  International students will be issued an I-20 along with instructions on completing their embassy interview.

For questions about the application process, feel free to contact your Admissions Officer toll free at 1 800 U CAN FLY.

Facilities and Services Available to Students with Disabilities

Aerosim Flight Academy has an institutional commitment to provide equal educational opportunities for qualified students with disabilities in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. To provide equality of access for students with disabilities, the institution will provide accommodations and auxiliary aids and services to the extent necessary to comply with state and federal laws. For each student, these accommodations and services will specifically address functional limitations of the disability that adversely affect equal educational opportunity.

The training programs are subject to the regulatory requirements of the FAA. Therefore, persons with certain disabilities may be limited or unable to participation and/or certification in the training programs.

Applicants or students who would like to request disability service/accommodations must make a request to the Campus President. Students will receive written notification of the determination within seven calendar days.

Aerosim Flight Academy is dedicated to assisting and providing reasonable accommodation to students with documented disabilities who request assistance. Individual student’s needs are addressed by the Student Services Office with regard to specific disabilities, academic and career goals, learning styles, and objectives for personal development.

Students interested in Aerosim Flight Academy aviation programs are encouraged to contact the Admissions Office for information regarding eligibility concerns. All information is confidential and not included in the student’s academic record.

Student Complaint Policy

Aerosim Flight Academy has a process for all students to receive guidance and advice when they have questions, concerns, or problems during their training. The key to achieving a favorable solution is to communicate the problem in a timely manner with the appropriate member of the Academy Staff.

Each student will also be assigned a Flight Instructor for each phase of training. The assigned instructor will manage the student’s training and will provide a majority of the flight, simulator, and ground training for that phase. Each student should understand that he/she might also receive training from other instructors during the course of their training. This is both necessary and beneficial in that it exposes the student to other flying and instructional techniques. The Academy reserves the right to make changes in the student’s assigned instructor in cases where it is clearly in the best interest of the student or the Academy.

If the student’s instructor is not available or the student feels it would be inappropriate to discuss a problem with his/her instructor, the student is encouraged to make an appointment with their Training Manager or the Chief Flight Instructor.

Questions pertaining to areas other than flight or academic training should be addressed to the Manager of Student Affairs. The Manager of Student Affairs will be able to answer the majority of student questions or direct students to someone who can assist the student.

If a student does not feel that the Academy Staff has adequately addressed a complaint or concern, the student may write a letter to the President of Aerosim Flight Academy. All complaints or concerns will be reviewed and acted upon within ten working days.

Student Complaint/Grievance Procedure

Schools accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges must have a procedure and operational plan for handling student complaints. If a student does not feel that the school has adequately addressed a complaint or concern, the student may consider contacting the accrediting commission. All complaints considered by the commission must be in written form, with the permission from the complainant(s) for the commission to forward a copy of the complaint to the school for a response. The complainant(s) will be kept informed as to the status of the complaint as well as the final resolution by the commission.
