Aircraft Maintenance comes to Chester County Aviation (CCA)! We are pleased to announce that with our move into Hangar #2, CCA Flight School has expanded into the general aviation maintenance area. We offer maintenance service for single and light twin engine aircraft, to include oil changes and annual inspections. We are preparing our list of Flat Rate Annual Inspections for most general aviation aircraft. Our service will include a detailed briefing for you, the aircraft owner, of the discrepancies found during the inspection and an estimate of the cost to correct these discrepancies. We look forward to working with you for your aircraft maintenance needs. Call us at 610-384-9005.

NACO Charts - Do you update your charts on a regular basis? Chester County Aviation normally stocks the AFDNE, Instrument Low Enroute (for most of the Eastern US) & Terminal Procedures NE1 - through NE4 as the Sectional charts for Pennsylvania and the surrounding area and the PHL, NY and Baltimore/Washington Terminal Area charts. For our customers who place a standing order (with credit card) for aeronautical charts, your charts will be ready for pickup prior to the effective date. Contact Steve for more details.

Washington DC Special Flight Rules Area (SFRA) -
As of Feb. 17, 2009, the rule converting the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area ADIZ into the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area SFRA became effective. All pilots who operate within 60 nm of the DCA VOR are required to receive special awareness training, available at (select Featured Courses, course catalog, Washington DC SFRA). Within the 30 nm SFRA, pilots must file a flight plan, establish two-way radio communications with air traffic control, and operate the aircraft transponder on the transponder code assigned by air traffic. While the special awareness training is a one-time requirement, FAA strongly recommends that pilots review the online course from time to time.
Because MQS is about 78 nm from the DCA VOR, we ask all student and renter pilots to complete the course and provide the flight school a copy of your certificate.

The insurance policy for Chester County Aviation rental aircraft has two very important restrictions.

First, the aircraft may not be operated on other than hard surface, paved runways, without a CCA CFI on board.

Second, the aircraft may not be operated outside the Continental United States. Besides the insurance restriction, the aircraft do not have the required FCC radio station license and most likely, you do not have the required FCC operator permit.

Effective December 20, 2004, the US Transportation Security Administration implemented specific rules regarding flight training leading to an Airman Certificate or Additional Rating, for both US and foreign students/pilots.

- - For US Citizens:
Effective December 20, 2004, you must provide proof of US Citizenship prior to any flight training, defined as training which can be used toward a new certificate or rating. You will receive a logbook endorsement verifying your citizenship. Reference: 49 CFR 1552.3(i)(iv)

- - For Non-US Citizens:
If you are a Resident Alien, please speak with the Chief Flight Instructor and then go to: and follow the instructions to register. Reference: 49 CFR 1552.3(i)(iv)
