Many of Charleston Flight's students and renters prefer to purchase prepaid flight hour packages to reduce the cost of the aircraft (&/or instructor) per hour.
Flight training packages are for serious students or renters. To emphasize this commitment to flight training, 5 hour packages must be used within 5 months of purchase and 10 hour packages must be used within 10 months of purchase.
The expiration date on a flight hour package may be extended if student or renter provides us with advanced notice prior to the 5 or 10 month expiration date.

IMPORTANT NOTE RE: PRE-PAID FLIGHT HOUR PACKAGES.
PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING
All Flight Hour Packages, or ''flight accounts" or Ground School Packages are not refundable in cash.
No exceptions. See details below.
Flight Training hours purchased in prepaid flight packages are only refundable in flight hours or gift certificates for Discovery Flight or Discovery Flight Plus Extra Passenger.
Ground school hours purchased in prepaid packages are only refundable in ground school hours or gift certificates for ground school hours.
Prepaid Flight Hour Packages and ground school packages can not be used to purchase pilot supplies, $5 headset rental fee nor the $50 extra passenger fee, if applicable.
If purchaser or recipient of pre-paid flight training hours no longer wishes to personally use their prepaid flight hours, funds can be 1) traded, 2) transferred, 3) sold or 4) donated as a scholarship to another student pilot.
If purchaser or recipient of pre-paid ground school hours no longer wishes to personally use their prepaid ground school hours, funds can be 1) traded, 2) transferred, 3) sold or 4) donated as a scholarship to another student pilot in the form of ground school hours.
If purchaser or recipient of a pre-paid rental flight hour package no longer wishes to personally use their prepaid rental flight hours, funds can be 1) traded, 2) transferred, or 3) sold to another renter.
Note: no single gift certificate shall disburse all of the remaining flight hours or equivalent funds at one given time unless that amount is equivalent to the total of one hour of flight, price of a Discovery Flight or Discovery Flight Plus Extra Passenger.
Note: Prepaid Flight training packages, Prepaid Rental Packages, and Prepaid Ground School packages are each separate packages intended for different purposes. Therefore, the different packages cannot be commingled or combined into a different separate package in the event of a trade, transfer, sale, or scholarship donation* (*training package only) should the purchaser or recipiant wish to not personally use the originally intended prepaid package.
For example, if a student pilot purchased a prepaid flight training package and cannot finish flight training personally, the student pilot could donate the remaining flight hours in the student pilot's flight hour package to another student pilot to use. However, in the same example, the student pilot cannot donate the remaining flight hours in the prepaid flight training package to a renter pilot because the per hour cost of training flights are different than the hourly cost of a rental flight, thus, the total hours in the prepaid package would be different and unfair to others who have purchased prepaid flight hours and rental hours respectively.
