THE PRIVATE PILOT CERTIFICATE

Earning your pilot certificate is a truly incredible achievement! And training for it can be fun, cost effective, and more fulfilling than you'd ever imagine. It'll afford you the ability to travel anywhere you choose with the freedom to pick up and go on your schedule. In addition to the personal fulfillment you're sure to experience while flying, you will be joining an elite group of individuals with a rather exceptional skill. There are less than 600,000 active certificated pilots in the United States. That's less than one quarter of 1% of the country's population. Not only will you be able to claim mastery of a feat many envy, but the benefits and opportunities are second to none.

Private pilot training with flyADVANCED is carefully designed to be respective of both time and budget.

To get your private pilot certificate, you’ll need to ultimately pass 3 tests: an FAA written exam, an oral exam, and a practical flight test. Through a combination of simulator, flight, and ground lessons, your instructor will ensure that you’re prepared to pass these tests and, more importantly, that you have a level of skill and knowledge that will ensure your safety and competence as a newly licensed pilot. Your training at flyADVANCED is custom tailored by you and your instructor to fit your own schedule. A typical flight lesson lasts for 2-3 hours, and it includes a pre-flight briefing with an instructor, a simulator or flight lesson, and a post-flight debriefing. You can complete your training in as little as 3 months, and your training will incorporate 3 phases.

 

PHASE 1 - PRE-SOLO FUNDAMENTALS

During this phase of your training, you will become familiarized with the aircraft and maneuvers, and you will learn about the regulations associated with general aviation.

PHASE 2 - SOLO FLYING AND CROSS-COUNTRY FLIGHT TRAINING

When your instructor determines you are ready to fly solo, you will fly a number of flights to and from the airport by yourself. This will build your confidence and allow you to continue practicing the maneuvers you learned prior to this phase. Concurrently, you'll train with your instructor to master the knowledge and skillset required to navigate safely from one airport to another over long distances.

PHASE 3 - CHECKRIDE PREP

During the final phase of your training, you will fine tune what you have previously learned to ensure you meet the FAA Private Pilot standards. When your instructor deems you ready for the exam, you will be recommended for your checkride.

Your training will be performed at your own pace, depending on your availability and your motivation to earn your license. The more frequently you come in for lessons, the more you'll retain between flights, and the more you retain, the more quickly you'll progress.  This is critical to saving you both time and money.
