Whether your looking to get your Commercial rating or move up to a faster more complex airplane, your first step is to get your Complex Endorsement. For the Complex and Commercial courses, I use a piper Arrow PA28R-200.his is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
The Sport Pilot Certificate was created by the FAA to allow a streamlined path for those wanting to learn to fly quickly. This is typically the lowest cost route to learning to fly but carries with it a few key limitations: no flying at night, two person airplane, aircraft under 1320 lbs and restricted from flying in poor weather.
An advantage to the Sport Pilot license is that a medical exam is not required. For the Sport Pilot course, I use the Sport Cub so you can get your Sport Pilot Certificate and your Tailwheel Endorsement at the same time!
If you are hoping to fly for a career, have the least amount of restrictions, or attain advanced ratings, the private pilot certificate is your first step.
After taking a discovery flight (which can be applied as a training event) you will work with your Certified Flight Instructor to utilize our syllabus and scheduling program to plan your training.
The FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours. The national average for a student attaining their private certificate is around 70 flight hours. A common question is, "What is the total cost to become a pilot?" Including the costs of testing, aircraft rental, check ride, ground instruction and supplies, a student pilot can expect to spend between $8,000 and $10,000. This can vary based on your choices of aircraft and frequency of flight.
There are 3 major milestones in getting your private pilot certificate: solo, cross-country solo, and checkride. With each of these milestones you will take part in a "stage check" to ensure you are safe to move on to the next stage of training.
After attaining your private pilot certificate you can rent, fly your own plane, or continue training to attain other ratings. Whatever you decide, I will be here to help
