Lone Star Flight and Testing Center is not a maintenance school we are a pathway in preparing you to take your FAA, A&P written exams and oral and practical test with the FAA.

If you've attended a Part 147 ATMS school, received military training or met the 30 months experience required by the FAA, then you are eligible to get signed off by the FAA.

At Lone Star Flight and Testing Center we can help you prepare for the oral and practical test exam, as well as the written: General, Airframe and Powerplant because we have an experience A&P, IA instructor and we are a PSI/FAA Testing Center.

The success to our business is to remove you from life’s distractions, so you can focus on the needed material to pass the written test, oral and practical test with the examiner. The FAA exam is designed to determine if the applicant possesses the knowledge, understanding, ability to manage risks, and basic skills consistent with the privileges of the certificate or rating being exercised on the tested material.  An applicant must know, consider, and successful complete each of the subject areas that they will be tested. 

                 (To see what subject areas of knowledge you'll need to know for the test Click here).

We have resources available to help you understand the material during your stay. All we ask, that you put your desire and motivation into studying the material so you can pass the test. If this is the first time taking a FAA aeronautical test you'll will need to get an FAA tracking number (FTN) from the iacra.faa.gov website. We will need a valid photo ID with your current address to take the written tests.

To start our course you will need an 8610-2 form signed by the FAA informing us that you have the credentials, knowledge and experience to pass the A&P exam in all areas. This also includes a certificate of completion from an FAA approved Aviation Maintenance Technical School (AMTS) or a Military Certificate of Eligibility.

Our A&P course will start by focusing on passing the three written test within three weeks. Next you will be  demonstrating your knowledge and understanding in answering oral questions given by the staff.  You then will be assigned various practical projects. This normally takes approximately a week and half to two weeks to complete.

The cost to our course is: $1,099.00

We require 50% down to hold your scheduled dates, if you require any supplemental instructions the cost will be extra. Course includes three written tests, the oral and practical test preparation.

The FAA Examiner fee is separate from our course and it is determined by the examiner, which could cost $1,200.00 or more.

Our course may cost a little less than our competitors price, but don't let saving a few bucks scare you. 

Our course normally takes 4-5 weeks depending on the applicant’s knowledge and experience level.

   This is not a quick two week course.

Once the course is started No refunds will be issued.

Allowances will be given to reschedule for a later date due to family emergencies, job emergencies, and illness while attending the course, but you will have 3 months to complete the course, instead of two years. The idea is to get this completed now instead delaying it for another 12-24 months. The FAA states that once you take your first written test you have 2 years to get you’re A&P test completed.

After passing your Airframe or Powerplant exam you will be issued a Temporary Airframe & Powerplant Mechanical Certificate from your A&P examiner.  This temporary certificate is good for 120 days until your plastic license arrives in the mail.
