Programs
Great River Aviation offers two training programs to meet your needs.

Our Part 141 Program is the highest level accreditation a flight school can receive. Great River Aviation is a FAA Approved Flight School under Federal Air Regulations Part 141, which means that we have an approved flight training syllabus for each course, instructor standardization, supervision and stage checks by the Chief Flight Instructor, and regular FAA inspections of school facilities, aircraft, simulators and training devices, as well as student training records, and instructor records. 

As a FAA-approved Part 141 Pilot School, we use the best ground school curriculum in combination with your flight training.  This integrated system, provides for faster flight training and better retention of knowledge and skills. 

Our general training program, also known as a Part 61 Program is a flexible training program tailored to individual student needs and schedules.
Medical Certificate
Prior to a student's enrollment in the Part 141 Program or a student's first solo flight in the Part 61 Program, the student must pass a medical certificate and receive a third class medical certificate or higher.  

The medical exam must be conducted by a doctor who is certified as an Aviation Medical Examiner (AME).   Applicants that are taking prescription medications or have had surgery or hospitalization are strongly encouraged to consult with a medical examiner BEFORE starting the official application process, as the examiner may make recommendations for the appropriate paperwork and for how to facilitate the approval process.
