Steps to Register in the

Flight Training Security Program (FTSP).

Contact Savannah Aviation about your interest in flight training, then follow these steps:

  1. Create an account at https://fts.tsa.dhs.gov.

  2. Submit a request for a flight training event under "Savannah Aviation (GA)".  

  3. Choose either Initial, Instrument, or Multi-Engine flight training (category 3).

  4. Under aircraft, put "C-172, PA-28, and "SR-20" for Initial/Instrument and "PA-30" for Multi-Engine.

  5. Once a training event request has been submitted, TSA sends the candidate an email with instructions on how to complete the request process. Each step must be completed before a candidate can advance to the next step.

  6. Once all items are completed, TSA performs a security threat assessment to determine whether the candidate poses a threat to aviation or national security.

  7. Once the request is submitted, the applicant will submit fingerprints and payment to TSA.

  8. After 1-3 weeks, TSA will approve/deny the request. 

  9. Training needs to begin 180 days of final approval and needs to be completed 365 days after initiation of training.
