According to the Federal Aviation Administration, almost 250,000 people in the United States have private pilot’s certificates, more commonly known as pilot’s licenses — distinct from sport and recreational pilot’s licenses, which limit what, where and when you can fly.
Learning how to fly a plane isn’t all that difficult. Even aviators swaggering in reflective glasses and leather bomber jackets will grudgingly acknowledge that. The process of becoming certified is time-consuming and expensive. Choosing a flight school and its flight instructors that fit your needs and personality will improve the odds of your success as a pilot.
