Private Pilot Certificate
The Freedom To Fly!
The private pilot certificate is the first certification, and the one that gives each pilot invaluable foundational training on the intricacies of flight. It gives you the freedom to fly provided that you remain in visual flight conditions and are certified for the aircraft that you are operating. It is the ultimate privilege, and one of the greatest accomplishments a person could achieve.
The private pilot certificate requires at least 40 hours of total flight experience, with a minimum of 20 hours of flight instruction. While 40 hours of flight experience is the minimum requirement, many students achieve certification with anywhere between 60 and 80 hours a flight experience. This, however, is not a hard number. Each student learns at their own pace, and the frequency of lessons has a direct impact on how quickly a student becomes proficient in the required maneuvers and knowledge for certification.
How Much Does It Cost?
As with any pilot certification, it is difficult to estimate the cost of a private pilot certificate. However, and on average, a private pilot certificate and the required training will cost around $15-to-$20,000. On average, students obtained certification after three to six months of training. This, as with everything, can vary depending on the commitment of the student and the training schedule.SIGN UP TODAY
