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.
