Private Pilot Flight Training
It's incredibly thrilling and fulfilling to get your private pilot's license. Whether you fly for fun or as a first step in a new profession, we can help you get there. Fly around West Texas while gaining all the necessary abilities to get your private pilot's license.
Before starting any flying training, the student must present identification proving their citizenship in the United States. You can use a birth certificate or a passport issued by the United States to prove your citizenship. If you are a non-US citizen, the TSA will need you to go through a background check before starting flight training. To complete the background application, visit www.fts.tsa.dhs.gov.
Before soloing, the student must have a third-class medical/student pilot certificate and be at least 16 years old.
In our pilot school in Texas, the minimum required flight time to qualify for your check ride is 40 hours.
The 40 hours must at least consist of the following:
20 hours with a certified instructor
10 hours of solo time
The cost will be spread out over the course. You pay as you go, so after you finish a class, you only must pay for that lesson—usually, a lesson costs between $300 and $380.
