should budget somewhere around $7,000 - $10,000 for your

vary with the time required.
At Texas Flight, you typically pay an hourly rate
for your CFI (Certificated
Flight Instructor) and your airplane as you go.
However, we do offer discounts if you put $1,000
(more for the multi-engine Baron – not available unless
doing multi-engine training) on account at a time.
Please note that
these amounts do not include the cost of getting your
medical certificate, which will require examination by an
Aviation Medical Examiner (we can help you find an AME).
It also does not include the final testing you will
undergo to get your PPL – neither the written portion, which
is typically taken at a CATS (Computer Aided Testing
Service) Facility, nor the final checkride with an FAA DPE
(Designated Pilot Examiner).
