Private Pilot



The FAA requires a minimum of 40 flight hours in order to obtain a private pilot license. 


You can start at any age but must be at least 16 years of age before you can take your first solo flight and 17 before you take your final flight exam. You must pass a physical, written exam, oral exam and final flight exam (practical).


It all starts here!

For training, TSA requires proper identification on file before instruction can begin.   Please review the following to ensure you bring with you the necessary documentation to prove your identity and citizenship.

Please provide in person, a valid U.S. passport OR, drivers license AND an orginial birth certificate. Copies or documentation received via email are not acceptable.
