Can I flight train in my own aircraft?
Yes, you can flight train in your own aircraft, but there are some restrictions that will apply. First, you must be a registered owner of the aircraft, and your name must therefore appear on the aircraft's Certificate of Registration. Secondly, you must be insured for the purpose of flight training, and the insurance document must specify that the Flight Instructor is insured for the purpose of flight training. Thirdly, during the period of training, all maintenance tasks (including elementary maintenance tasks) done on the aircraft must be conducted by a qualified Aeronautical Maintenance Engineer (AME), and the work must be entered and certified by the AME in the Journey Log. Students who train in their own aircraft pay normal rates for dual instruction, but must pay an administrative fee of $20 per flight for solo flights supervised by Langley Flying School Flight Instructors.
