Learn To Fly!
Have you always wanted to learn to fly? Maybe you never knew how to start. Perhaps you lacked the time to pursue your dream? Well, now you can learn to fly for less than you might have thought and more quickly than you might think.
Learning to fly is a great investment in your life. Most pilots describe a life-changing experience, something that can be shared with a friend as well. Whether you are pursuing a dream or a career, Flight Design Pilot Centers can help you take to the air.
Flight Design is committed to adapting new technology to personal aviation, providing more enjoyment to you while you learn and reducing the time it takes to become a pilot.
Learning to fly gives you freedom that others can only imagine. Flying lets you see things and go places that can be reached only from the air, whether seeing the sparkling blue of the ocean or quickly leaving your ground-bound worries behind, you have to try flying to believe how much fun it can be.
In 2004 a new simpler pilot certificate became available in the United States. Called Sport Pilot, the new Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certificate is the first level of pilot licensing. It is a natural entry level to a Private Pilot certificate or other more advanced pilot licenses. Yet Sport Pilot can be a way for busy people to attain their goal of flying for fun or a way for an existing pilot to keep flying in a way more appropriate for our changing lifestyles.
Obtaining the Sport Pilot certificate in a Flight Design airplane costs dramatically less than a few years ago. While a Private Pilot license can cost $8,000 to $10,000, a Sport Pilot certificate may cost only $3,000. Plus it takes only half the time as less instructional hours are required. See the following chart to map how you can progress in aviation, starting with your first flight in a CTLS.
