The best way to learn about flight school is to make a personal visit. You will meet with the staff, tour our facilities, explore our aircraft, and get answers to your questions about becoming a pilot. There is no charge for this consultation. You may also schedule an introductory flight during this time.
The introductory flight will be your opportunity to experience flight training first-hand at a very modest cost. You will get to “try it on” and learn how flight lessons are conducted with no obligation to commit to additional flight lessons.
The FAA has established the minimum number of flight hours needed to obtain a certificate. Under Part 141 of the Federal Aviation Regulations, the minimum is 35 hours for a private pilot certificate. However, a true average flight training time for a private pilot is around 60 hours. These flight hours can be spread over a time span of a few months to a year or more.
You must be a minimum age of 17 and in short, have base access: Active Duty, Retired, Dependent, Law Enforcement, DOD Contractor, or Civil Air Patrol.
