Accelerated Private Pilot Course

Another option is the accelerated pilot course. In this program we typically pair you up with another student who matches your availability (So mornings or afternoons) and you do your training together.

The way this works is that you both sit in on the same ground brief and split the cost. Then you each fly with the other in the back seat (for most flights.) This way you see all the exercises twice and have someone to go over things with other than your instructor which is nice. This course is a minimum of 4 – 5 day a week booking plan and works out to getting most people done their Private license within 3-4 months and keeping the costs lower too. 

Do note that you can also do an accelerated program on your own by committing to book 4-6 days per week, this will also help to keep costs down but allow you a bit more flexibility with scheduling.

  10. If applicable – have you ever worked with someone 20 years younger/ older? Any difficulties?
  11. What, if any other outside commitments do you have, or will you be primarily focused on flying? (this leads to having extra time towards flight training and can increase productivity if both make flying the priority)


The Private Licence will allow the pilot to fly any single engine, non high performance land aeroplane. There are various ratings available to upgrade this license such as the night rating, float rating, instrument rating and multi engine rating.
This is the license that must be completed first before moving onto the Commercial but it can be the start to an exciting aviation career or just a fun and useful hobby!


Training is at the student’s pace and convenience. We recommend training a minimum of twice per week to stay some what consistent. Remember that flights may get cancelled due to weather. If in the accelerate course should be completed in 16-20 weeks.
