How much does it cost Private
The cost of each lesson is about U$S 65 (hour) of flight, this cost is
based on the aircraft type and the flight instructor selected.
Your personal conditions determined the
payment method for your instruction. you can pay for each lesson (hour)
for separate or the school can offer a package of hours for cash in
The total cost of flight training
depends primarily in the number of hours of flight that will be
necessary for you, to compute the program of training.
The number of hours required by you to
achieve the improvement depends on several factors, as being the level
of initial comfort with the airplane, if you has previous experience
of flight, and the frequency of flight lessons. For example, to more
period of time among lessons, minor is the information that retains,
and bigger the time of review during each lesson. If you can fly with
more assiduity, their training will be more efficient in cost.
Besides the cost of the flight lessons,
you will consider the cost from the relating lessons to the
theoretical course. This is necessary to approve the obligatory
theoretical exam; required by DINACIA; before obtaining the license of
The cost of the course depends on the
instruction type that you select: a course of regular theoretical
classes, individual lessons with instructor, study in house; or a
combination of these methods pre-agreed with the school.
What elements do I need for the
Study material including Private Pilot Manual, our Training Program, a
copy of Aircraft Pilot's Manual, aeronautical charts, and some
elements for flight calculations, which can be acquired in the school.
How is a flight lesson?
A typical lesson of flight, (excluding the sailings), take
approximately two hours, of those which, around one hour is dedicated
to the flight, and the remaining time will be employee in the previous
and later planning to the flight; chord to the Practical Program of
How is the sequence of the
Practical Program of Instruction?
The Practical Program of Instruction is divided in three defined
phases: previous stage to the alone flight, sailing stage and
preparation stage for Private Pilot's practical exam. Each stage
includes instruction in earth and in flight. These are denominated,
STAGE" A"," B" and " C."
During this stage the student will receive information about the
necessary training to form a pilot. You will be able to familiarize
with human factors in the aviation, the systems of the airplane,
aerodynamic principles, as well as the flight and her environment. The
student will also obtain a basic knowledge of flight areas, airports,
aeronautical charts, air spaces, radio-communication and air traffic
and service controls, including the radar use.
Additionally the student will learn the
procedures of use of the radio and the sources more communes of where
to obtain the information for this flights.
During this stage, the student will receive information and training
about meteorological conditions, local and in route , and dangerous
phenomenon for the aviation.
The student will also learn how to
interpret the observations, reports, forecast and meteorological
Additionally the student will
familiarize with National and International Regulations, effective,
Aeronautical Code, R.A.U., ICAO Documents and it application in the
operations that a Private Pilot can carry out.
During this stage, the student will receive information about the
variables that influence in the performances of the airplane, the
calculation of the weight and gravity center by means of the different
methods and the consequences for the development of the flight. The
student will be introduced in the basic techniques for sailing, in
visual conditions , and with support in radio navigation aids.
It will also include the basic concepts
for the use of the aeronautical sailing charts, plotters, flight
computers and aeronautical information publications for the planning
and execution of the flight. In this stage, it will be demonstrated in
elementary form the operation of the VOR, ADF, GPS, like support
advanced to the visual sailing.
Finally the physiologic factors will be
studied that can affect as much to the company as to the passengers
during the flight, the correct planning and execution of a sailing
flight, keeping in mind the different factors that influence in the
taking of aeronautical decisions.
Each stage will be completed when the
student has approved an written test with a minimum of approval of
80%, the instructor will review next to the student the questions that
caused difficulty until achieving a complete understanding of this
Which are the requirements to obtain
Private Pilot's license?
Be 18 years of age old.
Possess a medical certificate of
aptitude class 2 effective.
Approve Private Pilot's theoretical
exam before DINACIA.
Approve a practical exam in flight of
Private Pilot before DINACIA.
Have completed 40 hours of flight as
minimum, chord to the Practical Program of Instruction.
Which are my privileges like
The holder of Private Pilot's License; chord to the effective
regulation; will be able to act like Pilot to the control or Co-pilot
of an airship whose Type Certificate of Airworthiness requires more
than a pilot eat provided it acts without remuneration and in not
remunerated flights, excepting in those operations that especially the
DINACIA authorizes. You will not be able to make acrobatic flights
neither of formation.
