The T2 Center Keeps Pilot/Escorts Well Informed with Updates
As the sole provider of Pilot/Escort Flagging Training for the Florida Department of Transportation, the University of Florida (UF) is the go-to source for pilot/escort information.
Rules on pilot/escorting in Florida are updated on occasion with no grace period on new rules being ticketable offenses. Pilot/Escorts are highly encouraged to check for rules changes at least once per year at https://www.flrules.org/
Recent changes include:

- The Permittee is responsible for providing the escort with a copy of the permit prior to the move.
