The private pilot certificate is where it begins.
The Private Pilot Certificate is usually the first milestone in an aviation student’s career. Students get to experience the thrill of their first solo flight and are instructed in the basic principles of flight, fundamental flight maneuvers, preflight procedures, navigation and cross country operations, takeoffs/landings, emergency procedures and night operations.
Weight and balance calculations and the entire spectrum of aircraft performance are covered in detail during the course of the private pilot certificate program and students learn essential aviation skills. Private pilot certificate program graduates are knowledgeable, confident and ready to take their career to the next level!
