What is the Private Pilot Certificate? Being a Private Pilot means you can fly for fun and certain business activities. You can take trips or just go fly around for fun. Take friends and family up and have a blast. You can rent an airplane similar to the way you rent a car. The only real limitations are you have to fly in relatively good weather and you can’t get paid as a Pilot. To be paid as a Pilot you will need a Commercial Pilot Certificate. Requirements Everyone learns at a different pace and our goal is to help you become a pilot that is comfortable taking your family in the airplane with you.
