Private Pilot

Private Pilot Certificate

Once you have decided on learning to fly this is where you will start. A private pilot certificate takes you from zero knowledge in aviation to being a pilot that can fly around the country with family and friends. We offer this course under Part 61 or Part 141.  We recommend starting Part 141 but if you’re coming to us with previous experience, we can continue your training Part 61.

Flight training pricing will vary between each student. The FAA requires a minimum of 35 hours of flight time. However, most students require more time than the minimum hours to properly prepare for the written test, oral, and practical flight tests. The average times are 50 hours dual flight (with your instructor), 10 hours of solo flight, and 20 hours of ground instruction. The pricing below is based on the average.
