Instructors at the San Jose, California,
ASF Flight Instructor Refresher Clinic with
their official TSA graduation certificates
Nearly 200 flight instructors received official TSA graduation certificates at AOPA Air Safety Foundation Flight Instructor Refresher Clinics this past weekend. They were the first graduates of the only in-person course approved to provide TSA-mandated security awareness training. The deadline for active CFIs to complete that required training is today, although TSA officials told AOPA late last week they would prefer to focus on compliance than on enforcement. Active CFIs who miss today's deadline are urged to complete the training as soon as possible.
The Air Safety Foundation's FAA-approved Flight Instructor Refresher Clinics include the TSA-mandated training and will continue to offer the TSA certification at no additional charge as long as the need exists. An up-to-date summary of TSA requirements is available to all pilots on AOPA Online.
