Our course begins every Monday, except for weeks where Monday is a holiday.  The 4 day course concludes on Thursday, with the exam taken on Friday. If you have a flexible schedule, so do we. We can start any day actually.  Plan on 4 days to complete the program.  Some have done it in less time, some required  more time. Either way you will leave confident in your knowledge of FAA publications and your abilities to carryout your IA responsibilities.  Our goal is to pass this test the first time. If you do not pass the written test, you may take our course again at no charge for up to two years, with the exception of the FAA/PSI testing fee of $165.00.  You may see more information about our test facility on our FAA testing page.

We are an authorized FAA testing center which can administer the IA test following the course.  There is no additional charge for the first IA written exam.

Cost of our IA program is $649.00 (includes test) 

This may be paid by cash or credit card.  We do not accept checks for this service.  To set up your course, please call Lone Star Flight Training at 832-721-3158.  We look forward to working with you.
