Flight Course Log Quizzes (2)

As the student progresses through Flight Training Syllabus at their Flight Training Affiliate, it is very important that the student stays on pace to complete the course requirements before the end of the term. To help the student stay fully aware of their own progress and to keep the professor informed, the student will submit a Flight Course Log Quiz. This is the student’s opportunity to keep a journal of their flight training experience and it will serve as a means for the professor to understand how things are going in flight training.

Percent of TCO: Midterm and Final Assignments (2)

As the student progresses through their Flight Training Syllabus at their Flight Training Affiliate, it is very important that the student stays on pace to complete the identified “Percent of TCO” requirement located within the instructions at the midway point in the course as well as before the end of course. To help the student stay fully aware of their 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).
