Ocean Aviation is a FAA Part 141 Flight Academy
Ocean Aviation Flight Academy is an FAA Approved Part 141 Flight School. The FAA Part 141 certification is the highest certification the FAA bestows on a Flight School. Think of it as an accreditation similar to what a university might receive. Less than ten percent of all flight schools are FAA Certified Part 141 schools. The FAA conducts extensive inspections prior to awarding the FAA Part 141 certification. Additionally, the FAA assigns three inspectors to each FAA Part 141 school. Routine inspections of student records, aircraft and avionics are ongoing as long as the school remains an FAA Approved school. Please see our section on FAA approved Part 141 vs 61 for more information on why an FAA Part 141 Flight school might be important to you.
