Flight Training Instructions
Aviation Science – Professional Pilot Program
The first step in enrolling for any flight training course is to meet with Program
Advisor Louis Kalivoda. He will ensure you understand the program requirements
and, with your agreement, enroll you in the appropriate one hour class.
Tuition will need to be paid at the Cashiers Office on the Northwest Campus as with
any other academic course. Further, you need to deposit funds into the “Flight
Training Account”. The department number is 63000405. The Account Code is 21101.
Upon verification of the deposit, the program office will contact University Air Center
and authorize your enrollment into the flight training program. The program office
will monitor your progress and authorize payment to University Air Center in
accordance with the appropriate invoices.
It is very important that you fill out the Student Training Report each time you have
a lesson or attend a ground school session at University Air Center. Make sure your
instructor fills out the appropriate sections and that the cost of the training is
documented. You and your instructor will sign this form and you must bring your
copy to the program office (located at the Institute of Public Safety) at least bi-
weekly. This form is required for each lesson that is to be paid from the funds
deposited with the college.
VI. Progress meetings
In order to ensure your flight training progress, a bi-weekly meeting with the
Program Director is recommended. Please arrange appointments through the
Program Office at (352) 334-0300.
