Pilot Onboarding

If you are a pilot and wish to fly Civil Air Patrol aircraft, you will need to complete our process to get checked out.

☐ Upload your pilot qualifications - .pdf

The VFR Pilot page links will direct you to eServices-Operations Qualifications-Pilot-FAA Qualifications and other pages for the PIC hours and the one-time Statement of Understanding.

Be prepared to upload your pilot certificate(s), current medical, proof of applicable PIC Time via the last completed log book page or electronic logbook summary, and proof of current Flight Review (FYI, a successful completion of the initial and annual F5 flight evaluation will complete 95% of the FAA Wings Flight Review requirement). Complete the following sections in the redirected page FAA Requirements and fill out the applicable sections:

  • FAA Medical

  • FAA Flight Review

  • FAA Instrument Rating (If Applicable)

  • Statement of Understanding

  • Orientation Pilot – Minimum Hours

At this time, you will not need to complete anything under Checkride/Questionnaires – Airplane
