Choosing the right program for you can be confusing…

If you are new to aviation, the various certifications can seem like a labyrinth of acronyms. PPL, ATP, CFI, MEI, Part 61, Part 141, it can be a bit overwhelming. The path that is right for you will depend on your goals. Do you want to be an adventure (private) pilot flying for personal recreation and travel, or are you seeking a fulfilling career in aviation?

Below are some basic program overviews to help you chart the path that’s right for you. However, the best way to learn more is to reach out to one of our training coordinators and discuss your goals and timeline.


Our Adventure Pilot Training

What we call our adventure pilot program is designed for any non-career-oriented students. It begins with the first step for any pilot, the Private Pilot License (PPL) after which students may go on to earn their Instrument and Multi-Engine ratings.


Fly at Night with Instrument Rating Program

An instrument rating is optional for Adventure Pilots but the second step for career pilots. It allows you to fly in adverse conditions, through clouds, and in certain airspaces otherwise restricted to pilots flying with VFR (Visual Flight Rules)


Build Hours as a Certified Flight Instructor

The most common way for career pilots to build their hours is by becoming a CFI (Certified Flight Instructor). This is typically the first stage of any career in aviation and it is where you begin your professional development as an aviator.
