To be eligible for an Inspection Authorization rating, the F.A.A. requires the applicant to:
Have held his A&P rating for a three year period before applying for testing, and have been actively engaged in aircraft maintenance the 2 year period prior to applying for testing.
Our 4 day IA course will not only allow you to leave our school with a high passing score on the FAA exam, but in-depth knowledge of FAA publications and complete confidence with your new IA responsibilities. GLOBAL SCHOOL OF AERONAUTICS Inspection Authorization course begins each Monday of every week, except those weeks containing school holidays. It is a four day course, concluding on Thursday afternoon.
We are an authorized testing center and can administer the IA exam after the completion of the IA course. IA testing will be available on Friday morning after the completion of the course. There is no additional charge for the IA exam after successful completion of our course.
In order to take the IA exam, you must have a signed 8610-1 form (application for Inspection Authorization and two valid forms of identification). You will need to contact your local FSDO to obtain the 8610 form.
