Beginner Pilots Flying as a Hobby or Career
Whether you’re simply curious about flying or looking for a fun hobby, a simulator is a great way to explore aviation!
Here is our guide for new pilots to start the journey of Flight Training:
I was a student pilot and had 50 hours of instructional experience. A friend suggested it as a good way to resume my flight instruction after a 6 year lapse.The equipment is state of the art and realistically simulates actual flight. He was very helpful in reacquainting me with the principles of flight, instruments, etc.I probably would not have resumed my flight lessons since it was not convenient to go to an airport at that point for lessons.Within a year after I took my first lesson, I passed my written exam, soloed and earned my private pilot certificate.

We encourage you to interview different flight schools.
There may be multiple flight schools in your local area but, do you know what questions to ask? We created a Flight School Interview Checklist!
