Anyone know when was the last time they started giving out licenses? I read they had some more Jan 30th, but it looks like they ran out of money again. I just picked up an iPad, and have the request currently in with the NGA store.


I figured the next quarter ends in June so hopefully some more money by then, as I'd love to start flying with foreflight. 


For those of you who got the MFB when they had the licenses, was it an instantaneous process of requesting the license and shortly getting approved or did it take like 24 hours for an actual human to process you?

The request was instantaneous but no human interaction. Got the liscence two weeks later.

I got mine about 4 months ago. I called the guy directly and he approved my request- the POC information is on the website. I don't know if there are any licenses remaining, you'll have to inquire.

After approval, I checked on the GEOint application a few hours later and it was available to install on my iPad. By far the best IFR application I've used, with the added benefit of having all the DoD FLIP on it as well(with updates as required).

I applied for it a few months ago right before instruments in the 60s and received the approval within a day or two.
