Be a Pilot:

Whether it’s a family vacation, business travel, or simply soaring among the clouds, flying offers something for everyone. Becoming a pilot is both a challenging and rewarding endeavor that takes less time and money than you may think. Learning is done at your pace and when it’s convenient for you. Flight instructors are highly trained professionals, certified by the FAA to work with you one-on-one to help you achieve your dream to fly.

What to expect:

According to the Federal Aviation Administartion (FAA), a private pilot needs to be at least 17 years of age, have 40 hours of flight time, and 20 hours of instruction from a certified flight instructor (CFI). During a student's flight training, they will need to complete 10 hours of solo flight, 3 hours of night flying, and 3 hours of instrument time.
