After 10 to 20 hours of concentrated training, you become the master of your aircraft, at which time you will be authorized to solo. Further training will consist of cross country flying and becoming more proficient with flight maneuvers. Your final training will prepare you for your checkride with the FAA, which includes an oral exam and a flight test.

Learn to Fly Process

As with everything in life that is truly worthwhile, training to become a pilot requires a certain investment of time and money. Rest assured. We’ll walk you through the program. Step by step.

1 Take your first flight, the Discovery Flight, from Eagle Flyers. You and a trained instructor will take an approximately 30-minute-long flight to familiarize you with the airplane, the airport and the general awe of taking the controls of a safe, reliable Cessna aircraft for the first time.

2 Start your flight training with the Cessna Flight Training System. Cessna's interactive programs work hand in hand with your actual flight experience – allowing you to prepare for your next flight before you even take off.

3 Get your aviation medical certificate. This routine medical exam is a head-to-toe check of your general health. There are few health limitations to earning your pilot certificate. For specific questions regarding health and flying, call us and we can recommend an aviation medical doctor. List of Approved Doctors.

4 Make your first solo flight. Once you’ve reached a certain point in the Cessna Flight Training System, and your instructor feels you are ready, you will take your first solo flight.

5 Fine-tune your skills. During this time, you will gain experience as you expand upon everything you learned prior to your first solo flight, both with an instructor and on your own. Typically, you will end up flying between 40 and 70 hours, about half of which is solo.

6 Take your knowledge exam. Thanks to the Cessna Flight Training System, you’ve been learning as you go. Now you’ll put all this useful information into action.

7 Take your checkride. When your instructor decides you’re ready, you’ll meet with an FAA-designated examiner for an oral and flight exam. Your extensive flight and ground training will fully prepare you to ace your check ride and earn your pilot’s certificate.
