TSA Requirements

Following September 11, 2001, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created to strengthen the security of the nation’s transportation systems and ensure the freedom of
movement for people and commerce. Today, TSA requires all Flight Training providers to vet all of their students qualifying all US citizens and having International students seek permission
from the TSA to begin flight training in the United States.
• If you are a U.S. citizen, you will have to give JA Flight Training proof of your citizenship by providing us with either a US Passport or US Birth Certificate. We will copy it and keep this copy in our files.

• If you are not a U.S. citizen, you will need to get permission from the TSA to begin your flight training by going online to http://www.aopa.org/tsa_rule/alienft.html which is a link to
AOPA’s (Airplane Owners & Pilots Association) website explaining how to get started and answers many questions you may have. That website will provide you with the link to start the
application process. This may take up to 4 weeks to be approved and if approved, grants permission to train for 1 year (365 days).**

** If you attended Culver Academy 2013 Summer Upper Camp and took Aviation and have already provided this information, it is still good for one year from when you were
granted permission
Again, If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact Carrie @ 630-549-2152 or cloehmann@jaair.com.
