Dual Instruction in small aircraft not allowed by Executive Order 55
Governor Northam’s Executive Order 55 has a six feet separation mandate that means that conducting flight instruction or certification in small aircraft is not possible since there’s no way to be six feet apart in a small aircraft. Individuals would be allowed to conduct solo training in an aircraft.
Students may still participate in aviation ground school provided the class has less than 10 people and they maintain the mandated six feet of separation.
The order does not prevent the rental of aircraft to individuals.
