What to Bring

Required items to bring to RMC before your first flight:

  1. Proof of U.S. citizenship (typically an original birth certificate or current passport). We won't keep it, but it is a government requirement for us to see it.
  2. Your own headset. We recommend you spend under $300 – try sportys.com or other aviation websites. We don't recommend a particular brand, just don't spend lots of money.
  3. FAA medical certificate – see the FAA website to find a doctor. You must get either a Class I or Class II physical. Don't get a Class III.
  4. An iPad mini. It must be mini size and it must be Apple brand. You'll buy a subscription service for about $100 that will give you all charts, maps, regulations, and RMC procedures. We truly are paperless in the cockpit. You do not need to get 3G capability. Only do that if you want it for personal reasons. Basic Wi-Fi is all you need.

The dress code when you are at Flight Operations for any training is long pants, a collared shirt, and close-toed shoes. Jeans are ok, but we want you to look professional.
