Courses are taught in colleges, professional institutions and universities to earn credits towards a degree or license. Diplomas and certificates are available in a wide range of subjects or skillsets.

What is a course in private pilot license? Required groundwork focuses on flight principles, aerodynamics, weather data and meteorological services, radio communications, aircraft systems, flight planning, night flying procedures, Federal Aviation Regulations, flight maneuvers and more. Students will log flight hours to get a jump-start on experience and the required flight hours needed for license completion. Courses take anywhere from eight weeks to two years to complete.

Learning how to fly can be a huge confidence boost to students in their personal and professional lives. In addition, flying is rewarding in its own right. Handling emergency situations and possessing basic medical knowledge extends beyond flight preparation to prepare scholars for similar situations on the ground.

Course costs vary depending on the school of choice and the duration of the license coursework. Thorough research helps interested individuals make the best decision for their time and money.

Most students earn a private pilot license for the thrill of flying a private plane on their own, for family and friends, for work or for their next vacation spot. Some have used it to become flight instructors or tour guides, giving them a new career path. Pilots have joined aviation clubs to expand their social circles to include their interests. Some have branched off into new hobbies, including aerobatics, airplane-building and aircraft restoration. You can also use the license to be a good Samaritan by providing rides for the terminally ill.

Courses for certificates and licenses are available for full-time and part-time enrollment. Start your career or hobby with a search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
