TSA Requirements

In order for cadets to receive flight training at the Michigan Wing Flight Academy, they must show prove their proof of citizenship to their Certified Flight Instructor (CFI). In order to prove citizenship to your CFI, you must present original documents.

There are two options for this:

  • US Passport (current and non-expired)
  • Original US birth certificate with raised seal and government-issued picture identification (such as drivers license)

This information is logged into the cadet’s logbook by their CFI. 

Instruction may not begin until this procedure is accomplished.
