Trainers slowly coax students into the cockpit of a Cessna propeller aircraft, starting with a two-hour classroom session. The session provides an overview of pilot training before delving into instruction and controls. Instructors also offer tips and tricks on how to earn a pilot’s license as quickly and inexpensively as possible. After completing the classroom portion, the potential pilots are cleared to the pilot aircraft with their instructor, where they go over controls in a hands-on experience and learn how to navigate between airports. The classroom portion and the in-flight portion take place on separate days.
Matt Zahora earned his first airline pilot's seat at the tender young age of 19, his lifetime of practice flying giving him the skill to navigate an aircraft even before he earned his degree in Aviation Management. With over 5,000 hours of flight experience in dozens of types of aircrafts under his belt, he decided it was time to open his own business, Chicagoland Aviation. Drawing on his wealth of knowledge, he helps groundlings become pilots and pilots to purchase their first aircraft.
