What’s does it cost to get a Private Pilot License?

This varies by person.
It takes a minimum of 40 hours of flying and at least 20 hours of instruction.  60-70 hours in not uncommon to finish.  

Using round numbers, the instruction and flight time come to $5900. I usually round this number to $7500 to account for going over the minimums and to include testing costs.

40*$115/hr = $4,600
20*$65 = $1,300

We HIGHLY recommend having most of this amount saved or planned for to avoid stopping and starting your training. 


Do I need renters insurance?

You don’t need renter’s insurance to cover the aircraft. The club pays that expense on behalf of the members. 


How do I pay my bill?

You will register a credit card on PayPal. The club will clear your balance of dues and flying once a month. Instructors are not employed by the club and are paid directly by the student.

When can I meet someone?

The club operates as a not-for-profit business. You should call or email to arrange a meeting.
