To help the student stay fully aware of his/her own progress and to keep the professor informed, the student will upload the “Percent of TCO Form” verifying “percent of TCO” progress at the midterm and final week of the course. This form will provide crucial information exchanged between all stakeholders (professor, student, and flight instructor/ FTA).
