Private Pilot Syllabus

We’re happy to announce that CRAFT’s Private Pilot Syllabus is now integrated into Flight Circle! Our new syllabus consolidates and formalizes improvements to Private Pilot training we’ve made since acquiring CRAFT last year in 2019. The syllabus strikes the proper balance between learning new concepts in the Redbird simulator, and perfecting maneuvers in the aircraft. More importantly, it provides all students a defined path to meet the requirements of the Airman Certification Standards (ACS) and achieve their Private Pilot certification within a realistic time frame. Other benefits of the new syllabus include:

  • Standardization – All CRAFT Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) will be using this syllabus at the Private Pilot level. This makes it easy for students to fly with a different CFI should their primary CFI be unavailable. CFIs will know exactly where each student is in their training, enabling better scheduling flexibility and seamless training. 
  • Predictability – No more guesswork on what you should be studying for your next lesson! The syllabus clearly spells out what a student needs to review before each lesson, enabling the student to make each training event more effective.
  • Ease of access – We’ve fully integrated the syllabus into Flight Circle, giving CFIs and students the ability to access to track their flight training progress from a single application. Each Flight Circle reservation will be associated with the corresponding Flight Lesson, and at the end of the lesson, your CFI will perform the post-briefing in Flight Circle and mark the lesson as Complete.  

We’re excited to finally provide this syllabus to our students; it’s part of our commitment to provide you the best training resources for your flight training. We are already working on new syllabuses for IFR and other advanced ratings, as well as developing other specialty programs designed to enhance your flying experiences! Stay tuned for updates!
