Our training programs are based on the Jeppesen curriculum, materials developed by a subsidiary of Boeing, and have been proven to produce ready pilots much faster than most curricula.


Schedule Your Discovery Flight

A Discovery Flight session allows prospective pilots to taste what flight training will be like. It allows you to dip your toe in before taking the full plunge. You’ll spend about an hour with an elite flight instructor, learning about the equipment, systems, and safety, followed by an actual flight where you’ll likely have the opportunity to take control for a short period. From there, you can make an informed decision about further instruction.

Fundaments of Flight Training (20-30 hours of flight experience)

This phase will introduce you to the basics of aviation. You’ll learn the lingo, flight principles, airport/airspace operations, communications, weather, FAA regulations/rules, checklist procedures, and flight maneuvers. We’ll ensure you’re ready to proceed from this stage with a “Stage Check” before you move on.

Advanced/Solo Flight Training (10-15 hours of flight experience)

This stage will advance your skills further with the mastery of landings, cross-country navigation, and more. This stage will also culminate with a “Stage Check.”

Examination and Testing (10-15 hours of flight experience)

During this last phase of private pilot training, you’ll participate in your previous solo flights and button up any requirements. Then, you’ll focus on preparing for the FAA oral and flight exams with your instructor. We will evaluate you with the “final exam, ” the End of Course (EOC) Flight. At this point, we deem you ready to take and pass the check-ride.

Participating in and passing the FAA exams will make you a certified private pilot.
