How To Get Your Private Pilot License

As a private pilot, you can fly virtually any aircraft, operate in visual flight rules (VFR) conditions, and add additional ratings such as an instrument rating. On The Fly Aviation will save you hours of time in the air. Our ground school is also accessible via a handy phone app. Let us help you learn how to fly! 


You don't need hundreds of flight hours to complete your private pilot training. It could take you only 3-6 months to get your private pilot license. Learn how to become a private pilot below.

On The Fly Aviation conducts private pilot training in a 1979 Beechcraft Sundowner. It's rugged, spacious, and easy to fly. It will take you from your first flight through passing the Private Pilot Check Ride and is available to rent afterward for your own adventures.

Part 61 Flight School Training:

We offer one-on-one, flexible private pilot training. Our video-based, online ground school course makes getting your private pilot's license that much easier. Our instructors will also be there every step of the way. Get your private pilot's license at your own pace and on your own time.

Instrument Rating: 

An Instrument Rating equips you with the exact skills needed to fly in the clouds and under conditions of reduced visibility. This is the "next step" after getting your private pilot's license and will greatly expand the utility and fun traveling by air.
