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 students complete the training program and obtain 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, while also saving you time and money in the long run.

You can get your Private Pilot training here at ProAv. 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 and a Commercial Pilot Certificate.

Private Pilot Certificate Basic Requirements:

  • Be at least 17 years old (you can Solo at age 16)
  • Pass a flight physical (consult an AME)
  • Complete a minimum of 40 hours flight training
  • Pass a Written FAA Examination
  • Pass an FAA Oral and Flight Examination
