Accelerated Private Pilot and Instrument Rating in just a few weeks!

Private Pilot

Accelerated Training Schedule

You will start with a morning flight, then ground instruction.  Then it’s time for a lunch break and another flight after lunch.  After the flight is time for more ground instruction or perhaps self-study.  We continue this schedule 5-6 days a week.

Example Schedule:

  • Flight- 7am – 9am
  • Ground Instruction – 9am -11am
  • Lunch Break
  • Flight- 1pm – 3pm
  • Ground / Online Instruction – 3pm – 5pm

How long will it take?

Three-week program for Private Pilot.

Two week program for the Instrument Rating.

Flight training is done to proficiency to a set of standards.  Because it is a proficiency-based skill, the time needed to learn will vary from student to student.  The FAA sets minimum standards for each pilot certificate and rating and our program meets and exceeds those requirements.

How much training will I receive?

Everyone learns at a different pace and our goal is to help you become a pilot that is comfortable taking your family in the airplane with you.

Below is a typical amount of training necessary:

Private Pilot

  • 35 Flight Hours in an Airplane with Instructor
  • 10 Hours Solo Flight
  • 40 Hours Ground / Online Instruction

Instrument Rating

  • 20 Flight Hours in an Airplane with Instructor
  • 40 Hours Ground / Online Instruction
  • 30 Hours Flight for time building –
    • (Waived if you already have at least 30 hours of cross country flying as Pilot in Command)

How much does it cost?

We train those starting form zero time as well as students who started elsewhere and need to finish.

Please contact us and we will create a custom quote for you based on your needs.

Financing is available through multiple lenders.  Contact us for details and options.

 

Does accelerated training cost more than part-time training?

Not in the long run!  Learning to fly is learning a new skill.  It takes practice and consistency in training.  If you have large gaps in your training (as some part time students do), you will lose proficiency and can regress in your training.  This can increase the amount of hours required and cost more money.  Those who take a long time to complete training will end up with more hours and more money spent.

How is your approach different than other schools?

In our accelerated courses we dedicate airplane and instructor time just for you.  No getting bumped off the schedule because of random excuses.  We have a very structured day and curriculum that leads to success.  We also dedicate a team of instructors to your flight and ground instruction.

What is needed to begin training?

 

  • $1000 deposit paid in advance to reserve your training spot
  • Online Ground School completed to a certain point
  • Student Pilot Certificate – we help with this.
  • Be 17 years old at the end of the course.
  • Government Issued photo ID
  • FAA Medical Certificate – 3rd Class is all that is needed for Private Pilot

  • Must be able to read, write, and speak fluently in English
  • Non-Owned Aircraft “Renters” Insurance. This protects you in the event of an accident.
