Q:

Hi, I got my boyfriend a similar 2-hr intro lesson last year, and am interested in the 4-hr san juan option listed here. Would this be a good option for him to continue getting flight hours in toward a license, or is it just a cool thing to do that won't really push him much toward the license requirements? Thank you, Natalie

Hi Natalie, The in-flight lesson time on San Juan Introductory Flight Lesson for Two definitely counts towards the total Private Pilot training requirements and is an absolutely great activity for a couple. That said, I’d recommend the Introductory Package, if your boyfriend is seriously interested in becoming a pilot and it works with your budget. The Package includes 4 in-flight lessons; all pre & post flight ground briefings; a 50 hour ground school and Wings Aloft membership. The Package will really give him a great start on his Private Pilot training and offers the greatest savings. Please feel free to give us a call at 206-762-WING (9464) if you have more questions or would like to talk with our training counselor. Steve

Q:

The deal says that the introduction-to-flying package imparts the knowledge necessary for a private license. Does this mean that someone will be eligible for a private license after completing the intro to flying course? Or does this mean that the intro course will prepare you for additional private license training?

A:

Hi Courtney, The 50 hours of ground school training absolutely covers a majority of the academic requirements for your Private Pilot license. In-flight lessons provide the practical or hands-on training and a review of the academics. FAA regulations that you have a minimum of 40 hours of in-flight training prior to obtaining your Private license. The 4 in-flight lessons provide a great start on the practical training. Please visit the FAQ link on our Learn to Fly page. The FAQ will go into much more detail. http://www.wingsaloft.com/traininglearn.html The Package is a great way to start your Private Pilot training with excellent savings and give you a good feeling for everything that is involved.
