Private Pilot Certificate Concentration


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: All Programs

This concentration combines ground and flight courses for students who have little or no flight time and wish to obtain a Private Pilot Certificate. A Private Pilot Certificate allows persons to fly passengers and to share operating expenses with passengers but prohibits the pilot from conducting flights for compensation or hire.

The course provides ground training and flight training as required by Federal Aviation Regulations.

The ground training subjects will include the pilot training system, airplane systems, aerodynamics of flight, flight environment, weather, aircraft performance, navigation, human factors, and cross-country flying. Students will be fully prepared to take the FAA Private Pilot written knowledge test at the conclusion of the ground course.

The flight training subjects will include basic flight maneuvers, takeoffs, and landings, the first solo flight, local day and night flight operations as well as day and night cross-country flights. Students will be fully prepared to take the FAA Private Pilot practical test at the conclusion of the flight training course.
