I'm an alien with green card and I own an Cessna 150. I want start my PPL training with a CFI I know. He just submitted his request to be training provider on http://www.flightschoolcandidates.gov.
How long does it take for him to get approved as a training provider and can he get approved as an independent CFI?
After he get approved, should I go submit my request in Category 3 Initial Pilot Certification?
How long does it take for me to get approved after I submit my request?
