The Flight Training Process (article 1)

Learning to fly is based on the building block process. It all begins with straight and level flight. Then turns, climbs, descents and speed changes are added to the mix. After that, it is just a matter of putting the pieces together in different patterns to get the airplane to do what we want.

The first lesson allows you to experience all of the sensations of flight as you use the flight controls and see how the airplane responds to your control inputs. The training continues with high and low airwork and then it progresses to takeoffs and landings. A highlight of flight training is the First Solo.

After solo, the training accelerates with advanced takeoffs and landings, navigation and an introduction to night operations plus some very basic instrument flying. The training concludes with several checkride preparation classes and flights that culminate in a Private Pilot Checkride and the Private Pilot Certificate.

Remember, as a Private Pilot, you are a member of a unique society that began over 100 years ago in December 1903 at Kittyhawk. Your pilot's certificate is your membership card in this society and it opens the door to new experiences and opportunities in personal and business travel.
