FLIGHT TRAINING THAT PUTS A PILOT CERTIFICATE IN YOUR POCKET
EARN YOUR WINGS WITH OUR HELP
Becoming a pilot can seem like a long road. There is tons of information and so many options make it seem impossible to get started, We can help guide you down the path YOU want to pursue. The first step is taking your first flight.
The first flight allows you to discover what it's like to take the controls of an airplane from the pilot's seat. It gives you your first taste of FUN in the sky. YOU can then determine your budget and your mission.
You can fly on virtually any budget. Once you decide what is affordable for you, think about why you want to fly. Most treat flying similar to a boat or a motorcycle. They go out on a nice day and fly because it's FUN! There are so many adventures you can find once you become a pilot. From a weekend trip, to a local flight to a restaurant; the sky is the limit!
Once you determine what you want to do as a pilot, you can start to form a plan for the path you want to take. Many start with the Sport Pilot Certificate. This allows you to fly a two seat aircraft during the day. For many, this covers most of the flying they will do. This certificate is also a great entry point from a cost standpoint. If you want to fly larger aircraft or fly at night, you can get your Private Pilot Certificate. Due to the extra experience needed, this certificate takes a bit longer and requires a few extra hours to meet the FAA minumums. Many of our customers started with their Sport Pilot Certificate and then two years later added on their Private Pilot Certificate.
If you are looking to further advance your skills, an Instrument Rating is the next step. This allows you to fly under instrument meterological conditions. That means you can fly in conditions that a Sport and a Private Pilot would not be able to. This is how the airline pilots fly. They use the instruments in the airplane for the majority of the flying, instead of looking out the window. Simulators and real world instrument flying are how you will train for this type of rating.
With so many options, it's important to determine what YOU want to accomplish. Flying is an incredibly rewarding activity. It is something you can always develop new skills in. We would be more than happy to talk with you about your path in aviation.
Here is a video of a few of our student's first solo flight! This is the point in your training where your intructor gets out of the airplane and you fly for the first time by yourself! It is one of the most memorabile experieces you will ever have!
