Course costs

Here is the course costs and breakdown. Keep in mind that this is an estimate based on what 90% of my students will pay. Please keep in mind that this is not a guaranteed price for you to pass the checkride although 95% of my students will receive their certificate within ten days. More training will result in a higher overall costs but will more than likely be much much less expensive if you were to attend a slow paced flight school. The following baseline quotes are based on both the private pilots license and instrument ratings. Your PPL or IFR may cost considerably less if you have previous flight time toward those respective licenses or ratings. If you are using your own aircraft, you will only need to cover the instructor costs...
