FAA Webinars on new airman testing rules now online
ATEC has scheduled a session on the new airmen certification testing requirements which became effective on January 13 during the upcoming ATEC Annual Conference in Fort Worth. In the meantime, the FAA webinar on the requirements has been posted online and includes the Airman Certification Tracking System to get an airman tracking number for those seeking an airman certificate. See below for a link to the information on mechanics and inspection authorization.
The Webinar covered the need for all persons taking a Knowledge Test to have an FAA Tracking Number (FTN), the removal of the embossed seal on a Knowledge Test Report, and the use of Airman Certification Standard’s codes on some Knowledge Test Reports.
