Flight Training Required & Cost (*For a single-engine airplane rating)
Total Minimum Cost: $10,745
Note: The Veteran’s Administration (VA) will not pay for Private Pilot training.
*To obtain the total amount of 40 hours, typically more than the minimum amount of dual instruction is required. This figure includes 30 hours of dual instruction in addition to the 10 hours of solo.
**This is the absolute minimum cost, based on the FAA’s minimum requirements for a Private Pilot Certificate, single-engine airplane land rating. The national average of flight hours needed to obtain the private pilot, single-engine airplane certificate is 65 hours of flight time. This figure also assumes the applicant will complete a home-study course, as there is no ground instruction factored into this figure. Ground Instruction = $82/hr.
