Private Pilot Flight Training The cost of flight training varies. How much a student spends depends on which plane s/he uses for training. Other costs include supplies, books, and required written knowledge tests.
On average, a "ball park estimate" of total costs range between $6,000-$9,000. At our Part 61 school, students pay as they go after each lesson or purchase flight hours in advance in prepaid flight hour packages.
Students at our flight school can personalize their own training schedule around their own life.
For more information on FAA license requirements, see DOWNLOADS section at the bottom of this page.

IMPORTANT NOTES RE: FLIGHT TRAINING. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
Read the notes provided in the ABOUT US section in order to mentally prepare for flight training. Learning to fly can be fun and you will probably want to share your excitement with a friend or family member.
Although it is not recommended to bring an additional passenger along on a training flight as friends/family can be a distraction, if you wish to bring a passenger with you to experience your flight training, an additional $50 extra passenger fee may be added to your purchase.
In fairness to fellow student pilots and Aircraft renters we enforce a 2 hour cancellation policy before a given scheduled flight. Meaning: If you cancel your scheduled flight less than 2 hours before your flight time (1) next time you wish to fly, you will need to prepay for your next flight (2) If you have purchased a prepaid flight time package, $50 will be drawn from your account as a "late notice fee."
