Part 141 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) are related to the structure and approval of flight schools. Training under Part 141 regulations is permitted only by instructors associated with an FAA-approved flight school. In order to become approved, a flight school must meet certain requirements and submit each curriculum it wishes to have approved to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for review. Part 141 approved schools are subject to regular  audits by the FAA and must meet minimum pass rates on the practical exams. These requirements result in a safer and higher quality flight education for students. (#AYKS724K)

In addition to being an Approved Part 141 Flight School, American Winds is also FAA Authorized to Certify pilots for the Restricted ATP (R-ATP).  Read more about that here.

ACCET was founded in 1974 for the purpose of improving continuing education and training and has been officially recognized by the U.S. Department of Education since 1978 as a “reliable authority” as to the quality of education and training provided by the institutions we accredit. Accreditation serves the interests of companies, agencies, and the public through the establishment of standards, policies, and procedures in conjunction with an objective third-party professional evaluation designed to identify and inspire sound education and training practices. When such a process is matched by an institution’s commitment to high standards and accountability, a partnership for quality becomes reality. (1473)
