You must be at least 16 years old to obtain a Student Pilot License, which will permit you to fly solo (without your instructor). You must be at least 17 years of age to receive a PPL. It's never too late to learn to fly - we have pilots that rent airplanes from AAA ACADEMY that are 70 years old and are still flying regularly.
National studies have shown that the average person needs approximately 50 hours of flight time and about 110 hours of ground instruction to pass the Practical and Written Examination of the CAAP and obtain a Private Pilot License. We will accommodate all of your needs to maximize training efficiency and ensure that you will complete your course in two months.
With your PPL, you will be able to rent an airplane at any time. This means that you will be able to take your family or friends to countless destinations for the day or a week.
**There are some limitations. You may not be compensated for flying. The weather conditions in which you may fly are limited. It is recommended to take our Instrument Rating Course (IR) for your safety and advancement. Also, the Commercial Pilot Course (CPL) is available for students who want to fly as commercial pilots.
**For foreign students who have difficulty reading, writing, listening and/or speaking English, AAA ACADEMY provides an optional English Preparatory Course before the ground schooling starts.
