VFR and IFR Certifications

A VFR certification basically consists of certifying the aircraft transponder (mode A/C or mode S).  A VFR certification is required every two years. The VFR certification should take around an hour and we can complete it while you wait when scheduled in advance.


IFR Certifications

The IFR certification consist of testing the aircraft static system, transponder, and certifying the altimeter and encoder. The IFR certification is required every two years. Since the altimeter and encoder must be removed from the aircraft to be recertified, the IFR certification normally requires about three to four hours to complete. For your convenience, it’s best if you schedule your IFR certifications as far in advance as possible.


RVSM Certification

The RVSM certification consist of testing the aircraft static system, transponder, and certifying the altimeter and encoder. The RVSM certification is required every one to two years depending on the unique manual for each aircraft. The RVSM certification normally requires about five to six hours to complete. For your convenience, it’s best if you schedule your RVSM certifications as far in advance as possible.
