    Has anyone recently had an approval from Flight School Candidates (AFSP)?

    Wondering what the current wait times are for recurrent training. I previously got approved and submitted fingerprints but just applied again for my IFR training.

    Thanks...

    Thanks. Was that for your initial private training request or an IFR/commercial rating?

    I submitted a training request for an initial certificate (Commercial) about a month ago and it took 8 business days to receive the Final Approval. They already had my fingerprints from a previous training request.

    AFSP is the Alien Flight Student Program. Non-US citizens are required to go through this security process for certain training events (initial airman certificate, Instrument Rating, Multi Engine, etc.). https://www.flightschoolcandidates.gov/

    To the OP, the current processing dates are updated daily in the provider portal of the website. As of yesterday, they are reviewing requests submitted on 8/8 or 8/9 depending on the training category.

    Any idea what the current wait times are for Category 3 (initial training request). I paid the $130 on 09/05 and still waiting for fingerprinting instructions.

    If you have a timeline, please share.
