The overall cost of obtaining a certificate will vary from person to person mainly because a student pilot can only obtain a certificate upon demonstrating his/her complete proficiency in the operation of an aircraft. The following breakdown is based on the average student pilot who flies one to two times per week and acquires his/her certificate in 50 flight hours and 30 hours of ground school. Please note that this breakdown is based on our current rates and may change from time to time. Additionally, this estimate should provide you with an idea of virtually all of the costs associated with obtaining a private pilot certificate/license. We have established this estimate using a history of students that are average in ability, so students have a realistic idea of the cost to obtain their private pilot rating. Some students learn faster that others and those may not need all the dual training therefore reducing overall costs.
