Anyone can learn to fly! All it takes is common sense, determination and and some basic coordination.

Your first lesson will be in the airplane! Your flight instructor will show you the basics of flight and aircraft systems and even let you take the controls in flight. Most people complete the training and get their certificate in about 9-12 months. We advise students to fly a couple times a week if possible. This keeps the details you learned during your last lesson fresh in your mind. It also saves you time and money in the long run.

You can get your private pilot training here at ProAv at the New Philadelphia Airport. This allows you to fly when the weather is good to moderate. You can go to just about any airport and take passengers with you. You can't, however, be paid to fly with a private certificate. If you want to fly as a career, you would need additional training afterwards.

Here are the  FAA's basic requirements to receive your private pilot certificate.

  • Be at least 17 years old (you can solo at age 16)
  • Pass a flight physical
  • Complete a minimum 40 hours flight training
  • Pass a written FAA examination
  • Pass an FAA oral and flight examination
