Frequently Asked Questions
The price of our exceptional private pilot training ranges around $18,000. However, students who are adept at learning and aviation can satisfactorily complete our private pilot course in as little as $10,000.
How long does it take?
The average time it takes to get your pilot certificate is 2-6 months. This is usually the case for the average working member of society that spends several hours a week home studying and goes to flying lessons 2-3 times per week.
Do I need to own an airplane?
No, but it helps. We will provide the training aircraft unless you own your own. In the long run, it is more efficient to own over rent, but you have to fly over about 150 hours per year to make it worth the trouble.
What are the age requirements?
You have to be 17 to get your pilot certificate, but you can solo at 16. The youngest we recommend to start lessons is 15, though it can be done earlier. There is no upper age limit to learning to fly, but medical concerns exist. More info here: https://www.flyingmag.com/training/learn-fly/flight-school-age-limits-flying/
