PRIVATE PILOT LICENSE PRIVILEGES

ADVANTAGES OF HAVING A PRIVATE PILOT CERTIFICATE

The Private Pilot Certificate is where we all start our aviation journey. By earning a private pilot license, you can legally fly an aircraft. While people may seek the license for hobby or sport reasons, a private pilot certificate is the first major milestone on the road to becoming an airline pilot. Becoming a pilot is one of the most rewarding and thrilling skills. 

We equip you with all the necessary tools and training to be a safe and proficient private pilot. Our Van Nuys Airport location will give you the perfect platform to learn how to navigate in today’s flying environment. Once you have your Private Pilot License you get access to our fleet of more than 12 aircraft to fly with your friends and family, whether you want to fly by yourself over Los Angeles and back or take your friend to Las Vegas for the weekend, you will have the skills and access the aircraft to do so.
