SO YOU WANT TO BE A PILOT? HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

If you always dreamed about flying this is where you start.
Our focus is on turning you into a great pilot in the safest and most efficient way possible.

Flight Program Application

If you are interested in enrolling in one of our flight programs, please download and fill out this application. You may bring it in to our office or email it to us at admissions@flyredarrow.com

FLIGHT TRAINING

  1. To start everyone has to get their Private Pilots License. FAA minimum requirements for this process is 35 hours of flight training but you should expect anywhere between 55 to 70 hours (national average is 65 hours). 

  2. To learn to fly you need to be in the aircraft and also learn theory.  The majority of the theory “ground school” will consist of our online course which you can do from the comfort of your home.  There will be in person training which can be scheduled with your instructor at your convenience.

TIME MANAGEMENT

  1. Time wise, someone that takes 3 lessons per week (each lesson will take about 2 -4 hours of your day more information will follow) will take about 6 months to get their Private Pilots License.  We do offer express courses that will finish in 8 weeks or courses that will take as long as a year and a half to get your Private Pilots License.

  2. We understand that everybody has a very different schedule so we are able to adapt to what is most convenient for your training.  We are open 7 days a week and are available for training all day.  In other words you get to pick the training period that is most convenient to you, we start operations at 7 am.

  3. Now that you have the basic information the two important questions you need to ask yourself is do I have the time to get my private pilots license and do I have the necessary funds to finish.  Assuming a 6 months graduation period, each lesson you have to allocate 2.5 hours plus your commute time in addition for every hour of training that you do, you should do twice as much studying at home. (So  if you are doing the 6 month program you have to allocate  22 hours of your week to flight training and or studying for your flight training)

BUDGET & FINANCIALS

  1. Though costs can be variable based on fuel prices and the total amount of hours it takes to get to get your licenses, a good budget would be about $15,000 (as low as $10,000 as high as $18,000)

  2. On a 6 month training program you should be able to allocate $700 to $800 per week to cover your training.

  3. There are some financing options available we work with Pilot Finance (www.pilotfinance.com) a third party finance.

ARE YOU A NON-US CITIZEN?

  1. If you are not a US citizen don’t worry you can still get your flight training, there is just one extra step.  

  2. If you hold a visa that will allow you to legally live in the USA (resident alien, H1, etc.) and not on a tourist visa all you need to do is go through a TSA verification process.  The process will take about 2 weeks. Link to TSA process.

  3. Do you only have a tourist visa, that is not a problem.  We can help you in the process of getting a student visa so that you can begin your flight training.  You can find instructions on the process here.
