Take Advantage of the Lowest Rate In The Area
On average it takes between 3 and 6 months to get your private pilot license.
The FAA minimum is 40 hours, however most student pilots take about 56 hours to get their license.
We tell people to budget about $10,000 for all the training, aircraft rental, supplies, testing fees, and other miscellaneous items.
With an instructor flight lessons are about $160/hour plus tax.
Airlines typically cover training for type ratings and in some cases will cover the cost for pilots to get their Airline Transport Rating.
Meet up with one of our FAA Certified Instructors and they will lay out a path for you to achieve your dream of becoming a pilot using our proven curriculum.
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. Other than that have a friend or family member let you borrow their plane at little or no cost. Neither of those work? Next is by flying at an affordable flight school such as US Flight Co.
