All existing flight instructors, including independent flight instructors, and flight school employees, must complete initial security awareness training as required by the TSA’s recentAlien Flight Training Rule by January 18, 2005. The training is required even if the flight instructor or flight school employee does not have any contact with foreign students.
“Flight school employee” includes individual flight instructors or ground instructors, certificated under 14 CFR parts 61, 141, or 142, or any other employee of a flight school, independent contractor, or other employee that has direct contact with flight students. New instructors and flight school employees must complete the training within 60 days of starting employment.
You can download the security awareness training at no charge directly from the TSA here. Alternatively, AOPA‘s Air Safety Foundation is also offering the training in connection with its flight instructor refresher courses.
