Become a Private Pilot NOW!
The private pilot certificate is the first certificate you require to fly freely in the skies. It lets you fly just about any aircraft (subject to appropriate ratings) for any non-commercial purpose, and gives almost unlimited authority to fly under visual flight rules (VFR).
Private pilots can carry multiple passengers, unlike sport pilots who can carry only one, and private pilots can fly at night and in more types of airspace with no distance restrictions as compared to sport pilots. We teach you how to fly safely and also help you in honing your decision making skills.
You will learn to recognize that good decision making always starts before you get in to the airplane and decide to fly. The minimum required training time for a private pilot certificate is 40 hours for Part 61. The national average is much higher but most students finish anywhere between 45 and 55 hours depending on several variables, including how frequent lessons and or flights are.
Our program is affordable and you can obtain significant discounts if you pay for your program for the aircraft rental upfront. You can also pay as you go and can chose from a variety of aircraft and control your training cost.
Training with us is FREE and included with the rental of any of our aircraft.
