Gulf Coast Aeronautical welcomes clients from all over the world and can assist you with TSA and FAA Foreign License Verification. We are ready to help all of our clients, from individuals to large airlines.

Do your pilots need FAA Ratings? We can assist with foreign license conversion to US ratings! We have an FAA Foreign Pilot Examiner on staff.

NOTE:  All of our classes are less than a month, so rather than do the normal INS I-20 form, come in the US on a B-1 or 2 visa since you will have your TSA approval and Foreign License Verification Letter (for Type Ratings).

Transportation Security Administration - AFSP

TSA has issued Title 49 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations Part 1552 that prohibits a flight school from providing flight training in an aircraft or aircraft simulator to non-U.S. Citizens without TSA approval. Under this Rule, pilots must create and maintain a TSA account at www.flightschoolcandidates.gov.

Based on these details, TSA will determine that the candidate is not a threat to aviation or national security and issue permission to train.

TSA applications should be made at least 30 days before your scheduled training event.

FAA Foreign License Verification

If you are applying for a certificate based on a foreign license under the provisions of:

  • 14 CFR Part 61 61.75
  • Special purpose pilot authorizations under 61.77
  • Using a pilot certificate issued under 61.75 to apply for a commercial pilot certificate under §61.123 (h)
  • Applying for a certificate issued based on a foreign license under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 63, 63.23 and §63.42
The Airmen Certification Branch must have the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) verify the validity and currency of the foreign license and medical certificate or endorsement before you apply for an FAA certificate or authorization.

The processing of the Verification of Authenticity of Foreign License, Rating, and Medical Certification form takes approximately 45 to 90 days to complete.
