Private Pilot License
Becoming a Private Pilot brings the world of flying to your fingertips. After passing your checkride, you can proudly say you are part of the 1% of the U.S. population that can call themselves pilots!
You could be flying your family and friends around in as little as 15 days from your first lesson. It won't be easy, but I promise the hard work and dedication is well worth it.
Adding an Instrument Rating to your Private Pilot License is a big step toward becoming a safer, more knowledgeable, and more professional pilot.
The most efficient and affordable way to earn your IFR rating is a dedicated 10 day program. Its fast paced, but in the end you will walk away with your rating and the confidence to fly in IFR conditions.
Already have some IFR training? Great, let's get you finished.
Commercial Pilot License
To get paid to fly, you'll need a Commercial Pilot License. Part of your training will include learning how to fly complex airplanes, making a few cross-country trips, and learning more about aerodynamics & aircraft systems.
The commercial certificate is the first step in becoming a professional, for pay, aviator. It is also one of the more enjoyable certificates to earn. Just 20 hours of instruction and you are on your way to the dream aviation job.
Need to build hours fast?
Become a CFI
Earning a Flight Instructor Certificate is an excellent way to gain experience and advance your career. It is also can be very rewarding to watch someone grow from not knowing anything about piloting an airplane, to their first solo and then on to passing their check ride.
Most pilots hesitate to work towards a CFI certification. Many feel they do not have the knowledge or experience. However, you probably know more than you realize. Why not share the experience with others and become an instructor.
Getting to the Airlines
To get hired by the airlines, each person needs a total of 750 hours for military pilots or 1,500 hours for a civilian.
Becoming a CFI is one of the best ways to build those hours. You will not only build hours but along the way learn more than you could imagine about aviation. Your skill levels will dramatically increase. Also as a CFI, you are introduced to many different aviators and could possibly get opportunities to fly various aircraft you may not otherwise had the chance to fly.
