Private Pilot Academy

Act as pilot in command (PIC) in non-commercial operations on single-engine airplanes and conquer the skies.

Program Overview

The first step towards becoming an airline pilot is earning your Private Pilot Certificate. The Private Pilot Certificate is where we all start our aviation journey. By earning a private pilot license, you can legally fly an aircraft. Private pilots are trained to navigate small aircraft by themselves.

Flight training includes aircraft maneuvers, navigation, emergency procedures, and cross-country flight planning. While people may seek the license for hobby or sports reasons, a private pilot certificate is the first major milestone on the road to becoming an airline pilot.
