Flight training with American Flyers is based on a standardized teaching method. This helps students learn faster, in a structured environment, that assists in retention and confidence in their knowledge. Earning your private pilot certificate is accomplished through a combination of ground school, simulator time, and flight time. Our method is to learn on the ground, practice in the simulator and perfect in the air.
Our “Learn to Fly” course consists of around 80 hours of total on-site education – this satisfies the minimums and provides you the training that you need. The majority of that time is going to be in a Cessna 172, Piper 100i or simulator and the rest is going to be on the ground and in the classroom. Students learning to fly with American Flyers have unlimited access to practice in our on-site simulators.
