Where Do I Start?

STEP #1

Pick A Flight School

The first step is to pick a flight school. Picking the right school will effect the cost and time it takes to obtain your pilots license. A good flight school will have student focused flight instructors, thorough pilot curriculums, and dedication to goal execution. At US Flight Co it’s simple: Use proven techniques, create a game plan, and execute.

STEP #2

Take A Discovery Flight (Check Out The School)

Take a short flight, see what it’s like. More importantly check out the school, and the flight instructors. Ask what kind of curriculum the school uses. Ask how much the estimated cost will be for a private pilots license. Reflect on the discovery flight. Did the school layout a pathway to sucess? How comfortable did you feel?

STEP #3

Make a Plan & EXECUTE

Make a plan that includes budget, and a completion goal. Choose the flight school you felt most comfertable with (reflect on discovery flight experience). Looking for a school that lays it out for you? Try US Flight Co! Our private pilot program lays out the entire process from day one. See when you’ll become a private pilot before you even start!

All of our flight instructors are trained on navigating all the specific requirements to start flight training including TSA Approvals, Student Pilot Certificates, and Flight Medicals. Give us a call today to meet with an instructor and start the process.

The cheapest way to become a pilot is typically by joining the military and being accepted into a flight program.
