What does it take to get a private pilot certificate?
Have you ever thought to yourself how incredible it would be to fly? Imagine all the destinations, adventures and memories that flying would bring to your life. Once you've tried flying there's simply no other way to travel - high above traffic, direct to the destinations of your choice and without the hassles of airport security lines or surly cabin staff - just pure enjoyment for you and your passengers. If you've ever thought that flying your own airplane is something that you'd like to do, we can help you chose the aircraft right for you.

Getting your pilot's certificate is one of the most fun and gratifying achievements in life. Your ultimate success in achieving it depends on you - your dedication, commitment, and effort.
How long will it take?
The FARs (Federal Aviation Regulations) require a minimum of 40 hours of flight training, although the nation-wide average is about 60-70 hours. Ground instruction is also required. Depending on your schedule and your commitment, it's possible to finish your training in about 3 months, by taking lessons 2-3 times per week - or spread out the training over a longer time to fit your needs. Weather is a factor when considering the time it will take to complete your training. For the ground school meaning the theoretical aspect of your training, you have multiple avenues for learning - from self-taught, multi-media courses, to one on one with your Instructor.
How much will it cost?
As a starting estimate, budget $42 per hour for your flight instructor's time, $500-$1,000 for materials, and $90-$170 per hour for aircraft rental, depending on the airplane you choose. Adding it all up, you should budget between $7,000-$10,000 for your Private Pilot's training, recognizing that exact figures will vary. We also allow you to pay as you go even though we do offer discounts for 10 hour blocks. Also note that your final check ride with an FAA examiner is a separate entity from your course. You can expect their fee plus an aircraft rental.
