Here is a link to a great article written by Susan Parson in the May/June 2008 edition of FAA Aviation News. Susan did a great job explaining the difference between a Pilot’s License and a FAA Pilot Certificate. She also goes on to explain the FAA Pilot Ratings and Endorsements.
As Flight Instructors, it is very important for us to use the correct terminology and teach our students to do the same. Hopefully you all will share this article with your students as well.
