SPORT PILOT LICENSE PRIVILEGES

ADVANTAGES OF HAVING A SPORT PILOT CERTIFICATE

The Sport Pilot Certificate is one of the newest pilot licenses from the FAA. This license offers many great advantages over traditional pilot licenses including no required medical and lesser training requirements. With a Sport Pilot Certificate, you will be able to pilot light-sport category aircraft while carrying a passenger. The Sport Pilot Certificate is great for getting into aviation without the burden of medical or added training costs! Earning your sport pilot certificate is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to fly an aircraft for fun. Essence Flight Academy, one of the top flight schools in the Los Angeles area, offers courses that get you on your way to earning a sport pilot license.
