Student Pilot

Hello everyone,my name is Jason. I have a question. I was at 141,then for some reason I terminated that course. And now ,after 6 mouths,I back to the same flight school and wanna continue training at 141. But the school said I can only continue at 61 and they gave me the course at 61. So is this condition legally?

    A part 141 school is very structured, it has a specific curriculum that must be followed. Part 61 is less structured and gives the instructor more flexibility in adjusting the training required to fit the situation. My guess is that you would spend more time and money by restarting in a 141 program, particularly if it is at the private pilot level. So the school is probably doing you a favor. I am sure that you can discuss the alternatives with them and make your own decision, but my guess is you will find using part 61 training the best choice.
