Earning a Private Pilot Certificate is the first step in realizing your dream in aviation. This certificate will allow you to carry passengers and use the airplane for pleasure and travel.
Under our FAA Approval, one could complete the course with a total time of only 35 hours instead of the required 40 hours under Part 61 Schools. However, the national average is around 65 hours. The actual time it takes is based on the individual's background, time restraints, and commitment. Realistically, one should not expect to receive Private Pilot Certificate at the minimum published time, but, generally, the more frequently one can fly, the less time it will take.
