Private Pilot

Becoming a Pilot

Many prospective pilots believe that the process for getting certified is time-consuming and expensive. The truth is that learning to fly a plane is neither – as long as you choose the right flight academy.

You can start your private pilot lessons at the age of 17. Commercial certification requires that you be 18 or older and have graduated high school. You must be able to do basic math calculations and be fluent in English (speaking, reading and writing). You must be eligible for an FAA medical certification.

The amount of classroom hours you need depends on the type of license you seek, as does the number of flight hours you must log to obtain the certifications. With our experienced team of flight instructors and safety experts, you will breeze through your requirements in no time.
