    Our flight training syllabus is based on the Federal Aviation Regulations(FAR's). As you progress thru the course you are completing the required training listed in the FAR's. By the time you have reached the end of the course you have completed the required flight training to become a Private Pilot.​ When the requirements listed above are accomplished you receive your Private Pilot Certificate.

As a result of what happened on 9-11-2001, all student pilots are required to show proof of U.S. Citizenship. This can be a US Passport, US Birth Certificate, Certificate of Naturalization, or a US Birth Abroad Certificate. Your instructor will document this information. If you are not a US Citizen, contact us and we can help you with the process to get approval from TSA to begin your training.
