JET WARBIRD TYPE-TRAINING FOR PILOTS

Under a September 2017 Letter of Deviation Authority (LODA) from the FAA, Starfighters is now able to offer F-104 flight training to qualified licensed pilots. This limited-access training is designed to enhance confidence and flight safety through comprehensive ground training sessions and back-seat flight operations in the controlled airspace above NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Here are the basic requirements:

Must have at least a private pilot's license (PPL)

Must have a valid flight medical

Must meet height and weight limitations

Must be at least 18 years of age

Must qualify for access badging to NASA Kennedy Space Center

Must sign a release-of-liability agreement

 

This course covers the fundamentals of flying the legendary F-104, an aircraft that made aviation history with speed and altitude records, its service as a trainer for NASA's Mercury and Apollo astronauts, and as a multi-role international military warbird. Starfighters will provide one-on-one instruction to ensure a thorough understanding of the aircraft systems, flying characteristics, and important safety issues. Here's a checklist describing what is needed and what is provided.
