I am supervised by the South Carolina Flight Standards District Office. I provide flight tests in the Western South Carolina and North Georgia area. I am based in Elberton Ga.
I am authorized to administer Sport, Private, Instrument, Commercial, and Flight Instructor Initial, add-on, renewal, and reinstatement flight tests. I am authorized to provide multi engine testing in the DA-42 Twinstar, the Beechcraft Travelair, Piper Aztec, Beechcraft Duchess, Beechcraft BE-55 Baron, Cessna 310, Piper Seneca, Twin Comanche, and the PA-44 Seminole. Check out my Flight Test FAQs at the bottom of the page for more information about my flight tests.
We are now required to use IACRA for all flight tests when possible. IACRA provides another layer of error detection, cutting down on clerical errors and paperwork returns. I have provided a link to IACRA on my Notams page. Please call if you have any problems with the IACRA process. It can be a bit confusing at first. I suggest that you bring a signed 8710-1 and all required documentation, just in case we have a computer issue and are unable to use IACRA. We must have either a signed IACRA or paper application before we can begin a flight test. I also encourage you to email me your FTN number when you complete your application. That way, if I find any problems, you will have time to make the necessary corrections prior to test day.
My fee is $600 for all flight tests except the CFI Initial, The fee for the CFI Initial is $1200. The retest fee ranges from a minimum of $300 to a maximum of $600, depending on the time required. Retests taken more than 60 days after the first failure require that the entire test be retaken and will be charged at the full rate.
The fee for processing administrative applications (Ground Instructor issuance, CFI renewal based on activity, etc.) is $100. CANCELLATIONS WILL BE CHARGED A MINIMUM OF $300 if not cancelled at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment. Issues related to applicant eligibility or aircraft airworthiness on the day of the test will be charged full fee. There will be no charge for cancellations due to weather, illness, or mechanical issues. No charge for cancellations made more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment. I realize that each situation is unique and I will make every effort to be fair. Form of payment is cash only. NO checks please.
You can schedule with me by phone or email. I am usually available seven days a week. I will make every effort to accommodate your specific scheduling needs.
