Private Pilot


The Private Pilot Certificate requires a minimum of 40 hours of flight time to obtain.  However, the national average is closer to 55 hours.  Training for all of our pilot certificates is done on an individual basis.  Training is one-on-one and always with a certified instructor.  We cater our training to your schedule.  We recommend that training be done 2-3 times per week with an average of two hours per session; however, we will work around what you are able to do.  The cost of the private certificate is variable for each student, and we can discuss those variations over the phone or in person if you like.  There are many costs that must be considered when obtaining a private certificate and they are listed below. The average cost is broken down as follows:

  •    Flight Hours - 50 in 172SP    
  •    Total hours w/ Instructor - 55
  •    Charts / Supplies    
  •    * Headset Purchase * 
  •    Private Pilot Kit
  •    ** Written Test Fee **
  •    ** Medical Exam ** 
  •    ** Check Ride Fee **    
Total Cost in the Cessna 172SP $12,169.00
    * = Optional            
    ** = Associated Cost, not charged by PA.        

These costs are based on 50 flight hours before your check ride.  The total cost will vary based on how much actual flight time you acquire.  If you would like to speak with an instructor about how you can determine your own cost, please do not hesitate to call.  Thank you for your interest in the Peak Aviation, we look forward to hearing from you.
