Flight instruction rates reflect the minimum time required by the FAA to complete the syllabus of instruction. Actual course fees may be higher for individual students who require additional instruction above syllabus requirements to meet the required proficiency.

We do realize that an aviation education is expensive. Aviation students, especially our students specializing in Flight Technology & Operations, are highly encouraged to apply for all financial assistance available. Scholarships, grants and/or financial aid allotments can be used by the student to meet the cost of a flight education.
