The FAA Require 40 hours of flight to receive a Private Pilots Certificate. This is a minimum, our average students become licensed pilots between 50 and 65 hours. These hours are broken up between flying with an instructor and by yourself (“solo”). Some students earn their Private Pilots Certificate in as little as a month. This all depends on their schedule and commitment to focusing on becoming a pilot. Race City Flight Operations has instructors who can accommodate any schedule and any timeline to get you to your goal!
