Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

With this deal do You actually get to fly on your own, with the Help of the instructor? What about take off and landing?

salomon b.  asked on  May 6, 2013

A:

Yes, in fact you will do most, if not all, of the actual flying (including take off & landing) under the supervision of the instructor (who will only intervene when necessary for safety). It is a very "hands on" lesson.

More Questions and Answers

Q:

After taking this lesson will I be a certified pilot?

Tim T.  asked on  May 9, 2013

A:

No, this is the first lesson that leads to an eventual certificate. You must log at least 40 hours of flight time with 30 hours of flight instruction.

Q:

I was about to sign up for my wife, who wants to get her license, but noticed something of concern: Your promo states the deal includes "instructor time" that is valued at "$300" but your website lists instructor time at $50/hour. Thus, for two hours, the "instructor time" should only be valued at $100. Accuracy and truth-in-advertising is extremely important, especially when considering retaining a company to teach flight. Please explain the discrepancy. Thank you, Steven

Steven G.  asked on  May 6, 2013

A:

I agree accuracy and truth-in-advertising is important. The instructor time is valued by the daily deal companies at $300 because they recognize that up to 3 people can participate in the 2 hour lesson (3 x 100 = 300). Although only one person can manipulate the controls in the aircraft, the other 2 can participate in the pre & post flight instruction as well as monitor the inflight instruction.

Q:

Is there an age limit for this deal? My son is 17 and I'd like to get this for him. Thanks.

David R.  asked on  May 6, 2013

A:

No there are no age restrictions. Younger student pilots, who continue with the training, must be at least 16 years old to solo and 17 to take the final check ride evaluation to earn the pilot certificate.

Q:

HI, I am trying to understand the "one student and two passengers". Does that mean I get to bring along two passengers or there will be two passengers while I am learning? If the ladder is true, can I buy a gift for my husband and we can be two students going together with the third passenger? Thanks, April

April H.  asked on  May 5, 2013

A:

Hi, you get to bring along up to 2 passengers with you (sitting in the rear seats) as you take the lesson in the front seat with an instructor. Only one person can take the actual hands on lesson because it is not possible to switch seats during the lesson. Please remember, there is a weight limitation of 500 lbs total for the 3 of you (ex: 200 lbs + 160 lbs + 140 lbs)
