Flight Training Is An Investment, Where You Train Dictates Your Career As A Pilot

Flight Training Is An Investment, Where You Train Dictates Your Career As A Pilot

Flight Clubs

Flight clubs are actually the training institution in the world producing most private pilots. This is because most students training for a private pilot certificate (PPL) do it for leisure flying. Also flight clubs can be found in most cities with an airport throughout the world. Not all of them offer training, but they all lease out airplanes for members to fly (vi).

In the United States, Europe and Australia you can even find some flight clubs offering training up to instrument rating and commercial pilot certificate (CPL). The huge benefit of flight clubs is they are usually non-profit, meaning the courses and rent fees are less expensive. As the people there are more interested in bringing you onboard as a member rather then making money on you the atmosphere becomes different. If leisure flying is what you are seeking then going to your nearest flight club is a smart choice.

If you are new to flying and not sure if this is the way to go, taking an intro flight or a few test lessons with the local flight club may be smart. They count towards your training needed for the PPL and prevent you from investing a lot of money on something you may turn out not to be that interested in.

Do you have time then doing the private pilot license (PPL) in a flight club before moving on to a flight school is something to consider. Many students do the PPL at home while in school or working before they move to a larger flight school for advanced training.

High Quality Of Flight Training Only at FAA approved Flight School

Enrollment in an FAA-approved school usually ensures a high quality of training. FAA-approved schools meet prescribed standards with respect to equipment, facilities, personnel, and curricula.

One of the differences between FAA-approved schools and non-approved schools is that fewer flight hours are required to qualify for a pilot certificate in an FAA-approved school. The requirement for a private pilot certificate is 40 hours in a non-approved school, and 35 hours in an approved school. However, since most people require 60 to 75 hours of training, this difference may be insignificant for a private pilot certificate.

Whether your goal is to fly for a major airline company or improve your flying skills, the flight school you choose will give you the solid foundation you need to achieve your goals in becoming a professional pilot.

Part 61 and Part 141 Flight Schools

Flight schools come in two flavors, Part 61 and Part 141, which refer to the parts of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) under which they operate. The most common and least important distinction between them is the minimum flight time required for the private certificate — 40 hours under Part 61, and 35 hours under Part 141.

Considering that the national average for earning a private certificate is 60-75 hours (how long you’ll take will depend on your ability and flying frequency), this difference isn’t important for initial training. It does make a difference to commercial pilot applicants: Part 61 requires 250 hours, and Part 141 requires 190.

What differentiates the two is structure and accountability. Part 141 schools are periodically audited by the FAA and must have detailed, FAA-approved course outlines and meet student performance rates. Part 61 schools don’t have the same paperwork and accountability requirements.

Learning under Part 61 rules can often give students the flexibility to rearrange lesson content and sequence to meet their needs, which can be of benefit to part-time students. Many Part 141 schools also train students under Part 61 rules.

Which type of school is best for you depends on your needs, available time, and other factors, such as veteran’s benefit eligibility (only Part 141 schools can qualify for VA-reimbursed training) and location. When it comes to the FAA checkride, which is the same for all, it doesn’t matter where you learned to fly, only how well — including your understanding of aviation academic material.

Although flight schools fall into two basic categories, Part 61 or Part 141, there is a third category that bears serious consideration by prospective pilots, particularly those planning a professional piloting career: nationally accredited training institutions. Accredited schools must meet rigid standards of accountability for virtually every area of operation and must apply to an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
