Types of flight schools

- Part-141 Flight Schools (FAA-Approved Flight Schools):
Enrolment at a part-141 Flight School usually ensures a higher quality of flight training, but not always. FAA-Approved Flight Schools have to meet certain standards with respect to equipment, aircraft maintenance, facilities personnel and curriculum.
One of the differences between a Part-141 flight school and a Part-61 flight school is that fewer flight hours are required to qualify for a pilot certificate at a Part-141 flight school. The flight hour requirements for a private pilot certificate are 40 hours at a Part-61 flight school, and 35 hours at a Part-141 flight school. However, since the national average is between 60 to 75 flight hours, this difference may be insignificant. Part-141 Flight Schools are not job friendly. If you plan on working full time and training you will be better off at a part-61 flight school.

- Part-61 Flight Schools (Non-Approved Flight Schools):
Part-61 flight schools are not governed as much by the FAA as are Part-141 flight school. Part-61 flight schools still offer the same type of flight training but they can provide their own training program that can meet or sometimes exceed the programs of a Part 141 flight school. Another great advantage of Part-61 flight schools is that you can schedule your flight training at any time. Training at a Part-61 flight school is great for people that have full time jobs or a family that they have to take care off.
