When considering getting into aviation there are many options available. We work closely with the FAA to ensure that our courses and instruction are tailored to your needs.
Regardless of your end-goal, before you fly solo for the first time you will need an aviation medical certificate (excluding Light Sport licenses).
- For a Light Sport License, you do not need a medical.
- For a Private Pilot License, you will need at least a third-class medical.
- For a Commercial Pilot License, you will need at least a second-class medical.
- For an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) you must have a first class medical.
It is a good idea to get this process underway early in your training.
There is no minimum age to start learning how to fly, however, one needs to be 15 years old to take the Private Pilot Knowledge Exam; 16 years old to solo; and 17 years old to hold a Private Pilot Licence.
Likewise, there is no maximum age to start learning how to fly. We have pilots who have trained with us that were over the age of 70!
