Accelerated Private Pilot Program


In as few as 11 days you could become a Private Pilot!

Getting your license in a compressed and structured timeframe can be a tremendous benefit. Because you're building motor skills and muscle memory, practicing daily allows you to become a natural at piloting as quickly as possible.  In these programs we train daily and accomplish the training in under two weeks.  The "normal," non-accelerated training track that people follow is two (2) or three (3) 2 to 3-hour lessons per week. This training schedule leads to the national average of approximately 75 hours required to get a private pilot license. When people dive into our accelerated flight training programs, they are able to get their license in far fewer hours, resulting in a significant financial savings.

    How do I start flight training?

    • Give us a call! We can go over the program in further detail and even give you a tour of our maintenance shop and school house. Once we receive your deposit, we can schedule your start date and begin with some documentation. Some of the documentation you will need include: completing the airman knowledge test, obtaining a medical certificate and student pilot certificate. If you need help navigating some of the necessary requirements to start flight training we can assist you.
    • Knowledge Test
      The airman knowledge test examines you on the concepts and information you will need to know for your training.  It is a computerized exam that will need to be passed before you start your Accelerated Program.
      Once we receive your deposit, we will provide you with an online-based ASA Ground School course that you will use to study for your written test.  This course provides you with an ebook, over 10 hours of video presentations, and practice quizzes to prepare you for your written knowledge exam.  We have found this to be much more beneficial and practical than the standard ground schools other flight schools use.
    • Medical Certificate
      You must have a current Medical Certificate prior to starting the Accelerated Program.
      This physical must be conducted by an FAA-designated Airman Medical Examiner.  You will be asked to fill out an online FAA application and medical history form.  The doctor will check your vision, hearing, balance, and nose and throat. The doctor will determine that you do not have any mental or neurological problems such as alcoholism, epilepsy, psychosis, or a serious medical condition such as chronic heart disease or diabetes mellitus.
    • Student Pilot Certificate
      You must have your physical Student Pilot Certificate in hand prior to starting the Accelerated Program. Once you complete your application it will take up to three (3) weeks to receive it in the mail. However, most students have received their card in about 7-10 days. We can assist you with the application for your student license.
