Thinking of learning to fly? We would love to teach you!

We have two types of aircraft to train in-- a low wing Piper Warrior and a high wing Cessna 172. Both aircraft have newly overhauled engines and propellers. The Warrior has a brand new interior. The Cessna has a built in GPS with moving map and an autopilot. Both are excellent for primary flight training and cross country flights.

We offer on-line scheduling so you can book your aircraft and instructor at your convenience. Or, if you prefer, you can call us to book your next flight lesson with a live person. We have flexible flight training hours and work hard to accommodate your schedule.

If you're not ready to jump right in with flight instruction, then how about an Introductory Flight Lesson? We will take you flying for about 40 minutes and you will actually get to fly the airplane! You can look around and get comfortable with your new environment and decide if this is for you.

Gift certificates are available for flight instruction.
 

Our certified flight instructor staff is dedicated to ensuring the best training for the least possible cost. No matter which school you choose, you must complete the following steps in order to attain your pilot's license.

1. Pass a written test
2. Obtain a medical certificate
3. Pass an oral exam
4. Complete the required flight curriculum
5. Pass a flight test

To assist our students in passing the written and oral exams and flight test, we use the ASA Private Pilot Flight Training Course. This course is an interactive program designed to ensure that the student pilot gains the knowledge needed to confidently pass all three tests. Our certified flight instructors will review each lesson with the student to ensure that all the material presented is mastered by the student.

The flight curriculum is computerized and tracks the studentís progress throughout the flight training program. Each lesson is designed to maximize the training while minimizing the cost to the student.

We also offer an accelerated training program for the most dedicated students. This program is designed for the student to attain his or her ratings in the least amount of time. Please contact us for further details as this program is tailored to accommodate each student's individual needs and schedule.

To Begin Your Pilot Training let us help you choose the flight instructor best suited to your personality and schedule. Once you have an instructor, you will map out when and how often you will fly. This will help you to estimate the total cost of your training. When you choose your instructor, you will also set goals for when you will take the FAA written exam and your practical test.
 

Time Required to Obtain Your Pilot Certificate


While only 40 hours of flight time are required for the private pilot certificate, the actual process takes longer due to ground training, aircraft preflight, canceled lessons due to bad weather, your commute time, etc.

Below is a typical private pilot chronology:
14.5 to 16 hours -- Presolo (dual)
2.0 to 5 hours -- Solo
5.0 to 7 hours -- Precross-country (dual)
5.5 to 9 hours -- Cross-country and night flying (dual)
7.0 to 8 hours -- Cross-country (solo)
7.0 to 10 hours -- Prep for flight test (dual and solo)
41.0 to 55 hours

Your pilot certificate can be obtained in as little as a month with near full-time effort. A more realistic timeframe is 6 months, but you will need to be patient as weather does not always cooperate with our flight schedule.
