FAA approves new training rule for Westminster College aviation students
First Published Sep 12 2013 09:18 am • Last Updated Sep 12 2013 10:50 am

Westminster College aviation students now can qualify for a restricted airline transport pilot certificate with fewer flying hours.

Aspiring pilots usually need 1,500 hours of flight experience. Under new authority from the Federal Aviation Administration, Westminster students can qualify with 1,000 hours.

The savings in flight time could allow students to qualify for the certificate one or two years earlier than students in other programs.
