Why Flight Training?

A lot of people wonder if they should pursue flight training. They wonder if it’s for them or worth the investment of time and money. If you’ve ever spent time with a pilot, you know that they truly love flying, and can’t imagine a world where they are always on the ground. Some people want a more practical answer though, so here we go with four reasons you should try flight training.

1) Flying is FuN

Let’s start with the most obvious reason. Flying is fun! Piloting a plane is a reward in and of itself, an experience unequaled in the world. We love to see our students using their hard-earned ratings! One of our Private Pilot students recently rented the Diamond DA40-NG to cruise down to the Florida Keys for a solo break from self-isolation.

2) Control Your Travel

Something unique to people who can fly a plane is the ability to control their travel. While others wait in long lines at airports, harnessing seemingly endless amounts of patience with the airlines and their processes, pilots are airborne and on their way. Many of us remember the freedom we felt when we learned to drive. The ability to fly is a feeling of freedom far greater. Trust us. 

3) Job Opportunities

Pilots are a highly specialized career field, and as a result of this specialization, there are often incredible job opportunities for well-trained pilots. You might think that becoming an airline pilot is the only career path for a pilot. The military,  corporations, private jet owners, cargo companies, tour groups, media outlets, and government organizations like the National Park Service and NOAA all need qualified pilots.

4) What an Achievement

Flying a plane is not just a simple task of controlling the aircraft during take-off and landing, there’s much more to the process. It’s hard work and an investment of time and personal discipline. Learning to fly is truly one of the most incredible things you can do. The feeling of accomplishment is truly second to none, and the skills you will learn will last a lifetime!
