“Excellence is achieved by mastery of the fundamentals.”

-- Vince Lombardi

Learning to fly is a building block process. Basic skills are the foundation for advance skills. Aileron Aviation believes in the importance of a strong foundation and never cuts corners when it comes to helping a student master the fundaments.

What are the courses?

Aileron provides training for airplanes:

  • Private Pilot Certificate - the fundamental certificate authorizing a person to fly in the national airspace.

  • Instrument Rating - an additional rating to the Private Pilot Certificate that authorizes a person to fly in weather.

  • Commercial Pilot Certificate - allows a person to be compensated for flying.

  • Recreational Pilot Certificate - a limited authorization for a person to fly in the national airspace based on type of aircraft and number of passengers.

  • Sport Pilot Certificate - a certificate to fly a light-sport aircraft.

What does it cost?

The least cost for a Private Pilot Certificate is $7,500 dollars, which includes aircraft, instructor and examination fees. The price is more typically $10,000 dollars. The cost is affected by the time a student has available for training, the type of ground training they choose and personal equipment choices, like headsets.
