Pilot Training Pricing

Student Registration Fee

$75

This covers everything you need to get started with your training.  We have done some of the leg work for you as far as study materials.  In order to pass the FAA written test you will need to self-study at home.  Our staff has come up with a student pack that we feel encompasses everything you will need to gain the aviation knowledge needed to pass your written exam.  We took all that material and packaged it up in a nice flight bag with an RSA Flight Training logo t-shirt.  Also included in the registration fee is your student folder which contains all of the paperwork that is needed to comply with FAA flight training guidelines and your course syllabus.  Our instructors will use this to track your progress toward your private pilot certificate.  We also have kits and student folders available for your Instrument Rating.

Introductory Flight

$150

This brief introduction to the airplane and general aviation will take about an hour.  You and one of our instructors will spend about 30 minutes doing a pre-flight inspection of the airplane.  During this time you will be introduced to the various components of the airplane and how they work.  After the pre-flight is complete, you will climb in and take the plane up for about a 45 minute flight.  Your instructor will actually have you fly the plane! You will have some guidance, of course.  In order to go on an introductory flight, you MUST bring proof of citizenship.  This can be a passport or a birth certificate, with the control number, and a government-issue photo ID.
