Flight Instruction Rates
We offer three different levels of rates for instruction to create a fair pricing structure. Each level of instruction caters to different training needs and enables you to pay for what you need and only that.
Standard Flight Instruction
The standard rate provides you with instruction you receive for any single-engine airplane that is not high-performance, complex, or technically advanced.
Premium Flight Instruction
The premium rate provides you with specialized instruction for multi-engine, high-performance, complex, or technically advanced airplanes.
Airplane Owner Instruction
The airplane owner rate covers any instruction that you receive in your own airplane.
