Flight Training

Discovery Flight:
Want to be a pilot?  Our discovery flight is the best way to see what flying is all about.  You will get to experience what it is like to be a pilot.  You will meet with one of our instructors to go through what a pilot does when they fly, including a pre-flight inspection, a 30-minute flight where you take the flight controls, and a post flight debrief.

Our discovery flights are available for $99.

Call today to schedule your flight and your first step into being a pilot.


Private Pilot:
Less than 0.2% of the United States population are active certified pilots.  Flying is exciting, challenging, and most of all, rewarding.  Many dream of learning how to fly, and now it’s for you to make that dream a reality.  It’s time to join the club of aviators!

Our training curriculum is designed to take you from having little to no knowledge of aviation to becoming a certified private pilot.  Our courses can be tailored to fit any schedule.

Requirements:

–              Must be 17 years of age

–              Read, write, speak, write, and understand the English language

–              Hold a 3rd class medical certificate and Student Pilot Certificate

–              Pass the Private Pilot knowledge test

Aeronautical Experience:

–              40 hours of total flight time

–              10 hours of solo flight time

–              5 hours of solo cross country flight

–              3 hours of flying at night

–              3 hours of simulated instrument

To make sure that you have the proper aeronautical knowledge and are prepared for the written exam and practical test, we strongly recommend an online home study course, which allows you to study at your pace, anywhere, anytime.  This course is an outstanding supplement to the ground and flight instruction you will receive from your flight instructor.

Once you complete the required knowledge test, and aeronautical experience requirements, you will be ready to take your practical test with a designated pilot examiner.

Instrument Rating:
Want to fly in the clouds?  An instrument rating will give you the privilege to do just that.  Earning your instrument rating is one of the best ways to allow you to get more use out of your private pilot certificate.  It will give you the ability to fly on those days where the clouds are low, or the haze has rolled in.

The instrument rating will ultimately make you a much safer pilot, giving you the skills to fly in the weather that grounds many pilots.  Besides, nothing beats the view of breaking out of the clouds on short final on an ILS approach.

Requirements:

–              Private pilot certificate

–              100 hours of total time and 50 hours of cross country PIC

–              40 hours of instrument flight (simulated or actual)

–              Pass an FAA Knowledge test

–              Pass an FAA Practical test

To make sure that you have the proper aeronautical knowledge and are prepared for the written exam and practical test, we strongly recommend an online home study course, which allows you to study at your pace, anywhere, anytime.  This course is an outstanding supplement to the ground and flight instruction you will receive from your flight instructor.
