Knowledge Testing Center

Harborside Aviation is a "Knowledge Testing Center"
for all FAA Exams from sport pilot to ATP and aircraft mechanic exams. Before taking a FAA knowledge test the applicant must have an “FTN number”. To get that they have to log onto https://iacra.faa.gov/IACRA and use Chrome or Firefox to do so. If they have trouble they can contact Jean Lewis for help at 941-639-0057. Once you receive your “FTN” number then they have to register for the test at this address:  https://faa.psiexams.com/faa/login. Again Firefox or chrome is required. Once logged in they will have to prepay for the exam and schedule it. A drivers license or government ID is required as a photo ID and a passport is also required if you are not a US citizen.

Harborside Aviation is located at the Charlotte County Airport in Southwest Florida, about 3 miles SE of Punta Gorda.
