ACCELERATED TRAINING FAQ
DOES ACCELERATED TRAINING COST MORE THAN PART-TIME TRAINING?
Not in the long run! Learning to fly is learning a new skill. It takes practice and consistency in training. If you have large gaps in your training (as some part time students do), you will lose proficiency and can regress in your training. This can increase the amount of hours required and cost more money.
Those who take a long time to complete training will end up with more hours and more money spent.
Nearly every flight school quotes their rates and the dollar amount is usually based on the FAA minimum times or close to it.
Although possible, it makes a couple of large assumptions. One is assuming that you are ready to become a pilot right at 40 hours. Many factors affect success and some people just need more time. Two is that you can do all the ground school and check ride preparation on your own without any help from an instructor. Realistically this would be extremely difficult.
In our accelerated program, we work closely with you and spend more time to get you prepared in a shorter time frame than a part time student.
This increased face-to-face time increases cost, but in exchange, you will achieve success in a much shorter time frame with our proven model!
