Private Pilot Training includes the basics of aircraft control and performance: navigation, maneuvers, weather interpretation, and basic instrument flying skills

Candidates will take a basic physical exam and apply for a Student Pilot Certificate. Prior to the checkride, students are required to take a written knowledge test – based on aviation regulations, aircraft systems, navigation and other items relevant to the Private Pilot Certificate. Students can fly day or night in VMC conditions (Visual Meteorological Conditions–not in the clouds). All training is conducted under Part 61 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.
