Flexible Pilot Training to Get Your License

The First Step Towards Aviation

Do you have the right stuff? Take control and fly freely above the traffic. The Private Pilot Certificate (PPL) is the first stop into the world of aviation. It is similar to earning  your Driver’s license. As a private pilot you can fly an airplane and carry passengers (friends, family, co-workers, etc) but not for compensation or hire. However, you can share the operating expenses with your passengers. This extensive training program will give students a solid foundation in aerodynamics, meteorology, and hands-on flight experience.

How long will it take to get my Private Pilot License?

Full-time students who dedicate their time to obtaining a pilot’s license can do so within a 3-4 month period. If you have a regular job and can only dedicate a few hours a week, then it may take about 4 to 6 months to accomplish it. Some students take even longer if they are unable to dedicate the time to training.

Can I get my Private Pilot License in 30 days?
The Initial certification is not something you should rush through. Full time students typically take 6-8 weeks to complete the Private Pilot course. If you come ready to take the written test and have previous experience flying a Cessna you may be able to trim a few weeks off of your training. The PPL is generally where students spend the most time. Everything is new and will take time to absorb and master.
Can I take a short flight first to see if I like it?
Absolutely, Wayman Aviation offers Introductory Flight which are about 60 minutes long. On this flight you will go out in the pilot’s seat with a certified flight instructor as your co-pilot. Take-off from Opa-Locka Airport in North Miami and fly towards the coast line. The instructor will help with straight and level flight, and a 180 maneuver that will bring you back into the pattern to land at the airport. The purpose of this flight is see if you are comfortable in a small aircraft and if it is something you wish to pursue. All introductory flight have zero obligations, and are a great experience even if flying isn’t for you.
When do courses start?
Flight training is conducted on a one-on-one basis. Students and instructors are paired together according to compatible schedules; weekdays, weekends, mornings, or evenings. Private Pilot ground courses are on-going and generally begin the Second Thursday of every-other month. The ground course is where you learn all the basics such as Aerodynamics, FAA Regulations, Meteorology and Navigation. Ground course is 45 hours. Additional training is available at an hourly rate. Ground school classes are usually 5 to 12 students in size guaranteeing that everyone receives plenty of special attention.
Do I have to pay for the course up front?
No, you can pay lesson by lesson as you progress. However, many students prefer to pay in advance. There is a 10% discount on flight time when purchased in blocks of 10 hours or more.
What will it cost?
The complete course is approximately $12-14,000. This budget includes all flight time, instructor and ground. However the written, practical test, and medical exam should be paid directly to the examiner. The costs above do not include additional flight hours or instruction that may be needed beyond the budget.
What other expenses will I encounter?
Students will also need current charts, a headset, checklists, and flight computers. Kits are offered or you can pick them up from the aviation store as you need them. Students can check the Pilot Shop  for up-to-date prices.
Can I really get my License in the 42 hours mentioned above?
Yes, but it is not easy. In order to receive your license within 42 hours, there must be perfect weather and excellent cooperation between student and instructor. The national average for students to earn their license in about 70 hours. Students that fly every day can finish the course very close to the 42 hour mark. If you fly irregularly or only once a week about 20% of your flight will be reviewing what was forgotten from the last flight. A strong syllabus led course is also essential to finishing your coursework on-time and on-budget.
