Private Pilot Certification Course

Our Private Pilot Certification Course trains a person to meet or exceed the certification standards and requirements set forth by the FAA for obtaining the Private Pilot Certificate.  This certification level allows a person to fly for pleasure with less restrictions than a Sport or Recreational Pilot Certificate would allow.  Minimum training requirements are as follows:


Receive a minimum of 40 Hours Flight Training (most students finish within 50 hours)

Pass the Private Pilot Airplane FAA Knowledge test

Obtain at least a 3rd class medical certificate

Pass the Private Pilot Practical test


 We pride ourselves on a very structured program that, if followed, allows a person to finish near the minimum time requirements.  Approximate costs range between $8,000 and $9,000.  Overall costs vary depending on individual need.
