I was reading thru the forums and someone posted that Enroute + Basics is 87 classroom days.

The FAA Academy online has the following for my Enroute URET class:

28744 05/14/2010 08/04/2010 10 OKC

This would be 5 days short of 87 days if it actually ended on 8/4. So what is the truth? 87 days or the online schedule?
:confused:

Probably what you found on the FAA website is correct. Keep in mind that class days are "approximate" and they do vary based on a couple of things (such as holidays). It all depends on when classes start, end, how many holidays are in there, days in each month, etc.

Thanks. If anyone else has had a different experience, please let me know. I am in the National Guard and it makes a difference for how many drills I have to make up before I leave for OKC.

the enroute + URET class does not include basics. you add the time for enroute + URET, which is 536 hours, plus basics which is 200 hours. you get 736 hours, divided by 8 and you get 92 days.

the 87 days that someone quoted you was probably enroute (no URET) plus basics.

hope this helps.

Mbalunda, you have indirectly answered my question. If you started basics on 11/5 and end Enroute + URET on 03/22 then your class matches what the FAA has published. I simply bounced it off of the FAA Academy course offerings. Thanks!
