|Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Requirements
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), through the Alien Flight Student Program (AFSP), requires non-U.S. citizens seeking flight training for their first pilot’s license and/or their first instrument rating to go through background screening.
Student are required to complete an online form, pay a processing fee of $130, submit fingerprints, and receive preliminary approval, before commencing flight training. Students are allowed to commence ground training while waiting for this approval. This process is straightforward and the initial application should be completed before arriving at Helicopter Flight Services. Helicopter Flight Services can arrange for fingerprints to be taken upon arrival. Information for the initial application is similar to that required in the Department of State forms DS-156, DS-157 and DS-158 that are completed at the US Embassy in order to get a visa application processed. It is a good idea to make copies of these forms to assist in completion of the TSA application.
Helicopter Flight Services will provide a student requiring TSA clearance with specific information upon confirmation of enrollment. Please call us at 609-265-0822 or email us through our website at www.helicopterflightservices.com.
