Your instructor will take you on a short flight to introduce you to the airplane, the airport, and the thrill of taking the controls of a safe, reliable Cessna aircraft for the first time.
With the Cessna Flight Training System, you will use our interactive programs designed to compliment your actual flight experience.
A complete medical exam is required to get you Student Pilot Certificate. There are a few health conditions that can prevent your pilot certificate.
Ground school studies and multiple practice flights with your instructor will help you to learn the principles of flight and will prepare you for your solo flight and oral examinations.
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.
Fly as much as possible to gain experience and build upon everything you learned prior to your first solo flight, both with an instructor and on your own.
A written exam will precede your oral and flight exam with an FAA-designated examiner.
Once you get your pilot’s certificate, get as much experience as possible, get involved, and stay connected. Most importantly, keep flying!
