Below are some frequently asked questions I get from prospective students from time to time.  If you have a question different from this, feel free to contact me and I will do my best to give you an honest and upfront answer.

How long does it take to get your pilots license?

This is a very vague question, that depends on many different factors. It is completely dependent on the students individual learning capacity, and is also influenced by the students motivation, funds, weather, and how good your instructor is.

The national average is about 60 hours of flight instruction, although it can take more or less.

It also depends on the type of program you decide to try. Some flight schools offer advanced fast track programs that can get you your pilots license in as little as one month.

How much does it cost to get your pilots license?

This is also dependent on many factors, but generally speaking it will cost anywhere from $8,000 – $10,000 to get your private pilots license.

How long will it take to solo?

I have had students solo in 14 hours, and I have had students solo with 55 hours. It really is dependent on the individual, but i will say students that seem to play flight simulator tend to solo earlier.

Whats Flight Training like in South Florida?

To be honest, this is the best place in the country to do your flight training. With great weather year round, and an abundance of schools to choose from, flying in Florida has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. And when your not flying, there is plenty to do in south florida.

Where’s the best place to fly in Florida?

I would say the nicest place to fly is south florida, and more specifically up and down the east coast. There are tons of airport diners up and down the coast, and there are also alot of attractions to visit. You can be having lunch in Miami, and then visit the cape canaveral space station and be home in time for dinner.

I will also say it is great to be able to fly to the bahamas, the florida keys, and plenty of other locations throughout the carribean.

What is the best flight school in Florida?

This is a very loaded question, and can be very difficult to answer. It really depends on the style of instruction your looking to get, and the area you would like to learn. It can be very intensive training in the southeast florida area, due to high traffic and towered airport environments.

The truth is, any flight school can get you your ticket in a decent amount of time. Your best bet is to contact local flight schools in your area for more information.
