Pilot resources and tools

Third Coast Aviation (‘TCA‘)  loves to keep up with the latest pilot tools and pilot resources available for our student pilots and the general aviation community.  Our TCA Certified Flight Instructors (‘CFI‘) suggest many tools, both automated and manual, for use by their students – each student should follow the directives from their CFI since each CFI may determine a different course of instruction based upon the student.

*** NOTE – TCA provides this list as a general guide. ***

Internet (Automated) Tools

Manual Tools

  • VFR Planning Forms (we recommend printing these at home and carrying three or four with you)

Student Resources

  • AVEMCO aviation insurance
  • Sporty’s Study Buddy – FAA knowledge test preparation for free!  Extra’s are available that make it even better.
  • Aviator acronyms – TCA has put together a list of the most encountered acronyms needed by the new student pilot in order to understand our website as well as their training.


There are a number of organizations that we at Third Coast Aviation highly recommend new students review for membership.  Here is a list of the ones that our Certified Flight Instructors (CFI’s) recommend:
