A dream….A desire….A goal….A fear….
Learning to fly is an amazing skill that is achieved for many different reasons. Some have always looked to the sky’s since they can remember, others have seen the excitement in a friend’s eye and thought it might be fun, or possibly to overcome a personal fear.
Whatever the reason may be, there will be much fun ahead and many accomplishments along the way. Below are the details to be expected while in flight training, which can be changed to work with your schedule and goals.
It is important to fly on a consistent basis. If there are large gaps between flights, some lessons may need to be repeated and reviewed again. The recommended schedule is two to three flights lessons a week. If your schedule only allows for one flight lesson a week we recommend extra review and a little chair flying between lessons. This will help keep your skills fresh in your mind.
There are three methods of study to prepare for your written and practical exams, and becoming a knowledgeable pilot. First is self study, you purchase the books and do most of the studying at your own pace. Second you can attend a ground school class, which is a classroom setting covering all of the required material. The third method is receiving one on one ground instruction from a Certified Flight Instructor. You can combine two or more of the methods to meet your needs. All of the study materials are available for purchase from Centerline Aviation, LLC.
Payment is made at the end of each flight lesson, there is no amount required to be paid upfront or as a deposit. If you choose, you can put money onto account so you don’t have to bring payment each lesson. We accept the following methods of payment: check, cash, or most major credit cards. Each flight lesson costs approximately $160-$190, depending on your flight time.
Financing is available. We can provide information to a pilot finance company that provides financing for all levels of pilot training.
