You can learn to fly. Like you, thousands of people have benefited from ATP’s assistance in becoming pilots. The procedures for obtaining a private pilot certificate and becoming a pilot are listed below.
Research Pilot Schools: To become a private or commercial pilot, you must first investigate your flight training alternatives. Choose the curriculum that best suits your flying objectives by learning about and comparing the options offered by flight schools.
Take an Admissions Flight: Before enrolling in a pilot training program, you must successfully complete an admissions flight. You may learn more about the training, equipment, and level of teaching a flight school will provide you with by taking this flight lesson. Additionally, it’s a terrific ᴍᴇᴛʜod to experience flying from the cockpit’s perspective.
Apply for FAA Medical Certificate: To fly, a pilot must meet certain minimal medical standards. If you want to fly professionally, you must adhere to stricter medical requirements than recreational pilots and should submit an application to an aeromedical examiner for a first class medical certificate (AME).
Apply for FAA Student Pilot Certificate
On the Integrated Airman Certification and Rating Application (IACRA) website of the FAA, submit an application for a student pilot license (your flight instructor can help with this). While a student pilot licence is not required to begin taking flying lessons, you will need one in order to fly solo while undergoing training.
Start Flight Training Lessons: Begin taking flying lessons and working toward gaining the necessary aeronautical knowledge and pilot training experience to become a private pilot.
Pass Private Pilot Knowledge Test: You must take and pass the computer-based FAA private pilot knowledge test while completing your private pilot flying training. You need to have your flight instructor’s approval before you may take the test.
Pass Private Pilot Practical Exam: A practical test with a Designated Pilot Examiner is the last requirement to obtain your FAA private pilot licence (DPE). You must pass both the oral and the flight portions of this exam to become a private pilot.
