Once you have decided to start flight training, choosing the right Flight School is the first challenge.

Having a clear path and knowing where you are in the process of becoming a private pilot are the keys to success.

Take The First Step

The first step in becoming a pilot is to schedule a Discovery Flight (also known as an intro flight). This is your chance to meet with a FAA authorized Flight Instructor, ask any questions you may have about our flight training, and learn about our training syllabus.

Before flying, the flight instructor will explain the process of becoming a private pilot in detail, including how to use our in-house syllabus and study guide. Once you are finished learning about the process, you’ll have a chance to get into an airplane where you’ll learn some of the flight controls, practice basic flight maneuvers, and discover the joy of flying.

Have more questions?

The best place to start is with a discovery flight. If you are interested in aviation call and schedule your discovery flight. Once you’ve experienced flying, we can help you set and achieve your goals. This is also a great time for us to answer any questions you have.

A discovery flight is an opportunity for you (or a friend/family member) to come fly for the first time. We will teach you the basic controls and let you fly with a flight instructor.

Obtaining a private pilot certificate averages about six months. There are many factors that can affect this time frame though and it often depends on the individual.

Please call to discuss flight training for advanced certificates and ratings.

Most pilots will tell you that this can vary based on choices made during your training, individual considerations and other factors. On average, one can expect to spend around ten to fifteen thousand dollars for the private pilot certificate. Financing options are available through several sources. 

CFR, Title 14 has the federal regulations governing aeronautics and space. Title 14 contains the Federal Aviation Regulations, or FARs, which regulate all aviation activities in the United States.

The FARs comprises parts, or sections, each regulating a certain aspect of aviation. These include aircraft design, maintenance procedures, and pilot training.

Part 61 deals with the certification of pilots, and both flight and ground instructors. It establishes eligibility, aeronautical knowledge, and minimum flight time requirements to obtain various pilot certifications and ratings.

Part 141 regulates pilot school certificates, along with pilot certification requirements for schools operating under this part.

The FAA allows pilot schools to operate either under Part 61 or Part 141. Although offering the same quality of training, the two parts differ significantly in their style of flight instruction.

Our training is conducted under Part 61 of the Federal Aviation Regulations. This allows us to customize a training program that fits into your schedule and allows us to meet your individual needs.
