Welcome to your journey of obtaining a pilot certificate!
Whether is just for hobby or fly for career in Aviation, Private Pilot license is the first license you need. After you obtain FAA Private Pilot you can fly single-engine aircrafts any where in the United States, and even into foreign countries such as Canada and Mexico. You can carry passengers, flight both day and night, but you will be limited to flying in fair-weather conditions initially. You can fly in furtherance of a business, but you cannot charge to carry passengers or cargo (this requires additional training and certification).
Within that are training requirements that you will need to fulfill that include:
To become eligible for your private pilot’s license under part 61, the FAA requires that each pilot must have at least minimum of 40 Hours of flight time. National average is 60 to 65 Hours. Our average at Airman flight training is 50 to 55 Hours
All Non-U.S. Citizen seeking Flight Training Under Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are required to apply for Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Clearance under Department of Homeland Security.
Duration Of Training:
If you are flying at-least 5 times a week you have higher chances to complete training in around 2 months. If you have a busy work schedule you can also fly fewer times probably once or twice a week, you could also do once a month. Depending on your frequency of flying lesson duration may vary. We have instructor who are flexible to work with your schedule.
CHOOSE A FLIGHT SCHOOL / FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR
Before you can take off, you’ve got to take in: becoming a pilot requires mastering a lot of information and skills. And it is not something that can be self-taught. You need to attend flight school or learn from an independent instructor. Think of this as your first of many “checklists,” one that will ensure you learn to fly successfully and safely. Take the time to evaluate your options, as the flight school, and even more so, the flight instructor, will have a large impact on your flight training experience. Your instructor will be your primary conduit for acquiring the knowledge and skill you will need to safely operate an airplane. You need to make sure that they are a someone you can learn from. You should consider many characteristics of potential instructors including teaching style, experience and availability.
Imagine being frustrated about cancellation of schedule due to to aircraft maintenance. Aircraft needs regular maintenance. You also want to evaluate and check the aircraft being used by the flight school. How good are they maintained? Are they newer models or older model? How are they equipped?
We always recommend a Discovery Flight where you can judge how is the aircraft how is the instructor and judge yourself whether you really want to go forward or stop right there.
OBTAIN A MEDICAL CERTIFICATE
You will need to obtain a medical certificate prior to exercising the solo flight privileges of your student pilot certificate. If you only plan on exercising Private Pilot certificate privileges, you only need a Third Class Medical Certificate. For more information click the FAA Medical to obtain more details.
OBTAIN STUDENT PILOT CERTIFICATE
Your flight instructor will help you complete the application for a Student Pilot Certificate during your first initial lessons. It usually takes about a week to receive the temporary certificate from the FAA.
HIT THE BOOKS (OR COMPUTER)
This is where you learn flight and aircraft operation procedures, as well as aeronautical knowledge. It can be done simultaneously during your flight school training. You’ll study subjects such as flight planning, aerodynamics, aircraft systems, weather avoidance, FAA regulations, principles of navigation, aeromedical factors, stall/spin awareness, and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) incident/accident reporting requirements.
You can complete ground school as part of your flight school training or if you are a self-starter, on your own through self-paced, home-study using online programs. We usually recommend Books and Online classes by Rod Machado the language is so simplified that it will be fun learning and obtaining knowledge.
You will need to pass a sixty-question, multiple-choice knowledge exam before you can take the practical test. In our program you will study for this knowledge test in small chunks as you progress through your training using Rod Machado Private Pilot Online course and books.
BEGIN YOUR FLYING TRAINING
Flight school and ground school often occur concurrently, which enables you to apply your ground school knowledge in the aircraft. This is the flying part of flight school, where you’ll perform takeoffs, landings and performance maneuvers. You will handle radio communications and put your knowledge of airport operations, ground reference and emergency procedures into practice.
We provide an integrated training program any syllabus prepared by retired United airlines captain (Ralph Butcher) preparing you for both the knowledge test and practical test, while also helping you accumulate the required experience, knowledge and skill to earn the Private Pilot certificate.
Training for the Private Pilot certificate is conducted under Part 61 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.
You will be paired with a flight instructor who will serve as your guide throughout your training. Your instructors will help you acquire knowledge, skill and decision making competencies, both in the classroom and in the airplane.
FIRST STAGE GO SOLO
Eventually, you will be “set free” and allowed to fly solo without your instructor, practicing takeoffs and landings as well as all your other skills on your own. Eventually, you will be “set free” and allowed to fly solo without your instructor, practicing takeoffs and landings as well as all your other skills on your own. Although every student learns at their own pace, it generally takes about 15-20 hours or so in the aircraft before most students are ready to safely solo.
SECOND STAGE CROSS COUNTRY TRAINING
When your instructor deems you’re ready, you will take cross country trips, including a solo cross country flight, that will test your ability to apply your aviation skills over longer distances with takeoffs and landings at unfamiliar airports. You will put your knowledge of flight planning, weather, navigation and communications to the test.
THRID STAGE DO YOUR CHECKRIDE
The checkride is an oral and practical test of your aviation skills that brings together elements from every aspect of your training. Before you can schedule your check ride, you must have a series of endorsements, including:
A designated pilot examiner will ask you questions to evaluate your aviation knowledge and measure your flying skills against FAA requirements and performance parameters known as the Airman Certification Standards (ACS).
The practical test is a half-day discussion and flight demonstration in which a pilot examiner will determine if you meet the standards required for issuance of a pilot certificate. Our third stage of training is focused on helping you to be over-prepared for this test so that you know what to expect and pass the test the first time.
Total instructional and flight time hours needed to complete training can vary depending on a number of factors including frequency of lessons, your level of preparation for each lesson, and the rate at which you learn. We recommend planning to need at least 60 to 80 instructional hours and 55 flight hours, but it’s common for pilots to need additional instruction time, especially if they experience breaks in training, missed lessons, and/or can’t consistently prepare for each lesson.
