Private Pilot Training

Be one of the few and start your private pilot training. You might be looking into kicking off a career in aviation, a new hobby to enjoy, or a new way of travel. The private pilot certificate has got you covered in all areas. The goal at Twin Cities Flight is to offer the private pilot course the way that you imagine it. We work hard to cater to your personal needs and maintain a flexible approach so  you can complete the program based on your availability and timeline. With this approach, we can propel you through the program in as little as two months or realize a relaxed approach to allow you as much time as needed to complete the course. 


The cost to receive flight training is the biggest hurdle for many, but you cannot put a price tag on an investment into your future and enjoyment of life. The average cost for the Private Pilot Certificate can range anywhere from $14K-$24K depending on location and rental rates. We fit right in the middle of that price range to offer fair and competitive pricing. You can expect to pay around $19,000 for your Private Pilot License at Twin Cities Flight.
