Frequently Asked Questions

There is so much information out there and you are wondering how do you actually start flight training. We understand. If this is your very first flight in a small piston aircraft and you are wondering what to expect, then you should start with a Discovery Flight. If you already know the ropes and need to make a personalized training plan, then we recommend scheduling an appointment with one of our instructors to go over your training needs in person. Either way, your first step is to contact BVFS front desk, every day from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM including weekends. Call us at 1-979-260-6322 and get started today!

The best kind! Jokes aside, Brazos Valley Flight Services is a 14 CFR part 61 Flight School, according to the FAA definition. This means that we have the flexibility to adapt our training to your needs and must follow the path to certification defined in part 61 of the federal regulations. It is also a Cessna Pilot Center, which gives you the confidence of a tried and trusted training curriculum, together with beautiful, safe, and fun aircraft.

BVFS encourages each client to fly two to three times per week on a regular basis. This schedule is considered full-time enrollment, supports consistent progress, and provides the best overall training experience. Flying less than twice per week may extend the course duration.

Flight lessons are scheduled in two or three-hour blocks of time by reserving both aircraft and instructor, at the student’s convenience. During the cross country phase, some lessons will be four to five hours in duration. Once endorsed by the instructor, some of the flights will be “solo.”

Private Pilot students must schedule all initial training flights during daylight hours. Later in the course, there are additional training flights which will be performed at night with the instructor. After certification, you may continue to fly with us by renting our aircraft and fly to your favorite destinations.

BVFS is an official Cessna Pilot Center and follows Cessna’s computer-based instruction course. This program is a fully integrated curriculum where students view ground lessons at home on their computer, or tablet, and then come to the airport for reviews and flight lessons. Most ground instruction is computer directed and can be completed at home rather than in a classroom environment. BVFS instructors are available to answer student questions and provide clarifications anytime. Instructors will also complement the computer based training by probing your knowledge during the lessons and reinforcing any week spot they perceive. Toward the end of the training, instructors will also schedule with you comprehensive review sessions to prepare you for the practical test. The combination of online curriculum and instructor support provides a complete and effective training experience.

BVFS employs seasoned flight instructors that are available seven days a week. Students choose the instructor they want and may change at any time.

Students should expect to spend about two hours studying and utilizing the Computer-based Instruction Course before each flight lesson.

Students flying two to three times per week on average and studying regularly before coming to the flight lessons can expect to finish in 3 to 4 months, weather permitting. Customers flying or studying less regularly may take longer. In any case, BVFS’ instructors will make a training program that is right for your needs. Accelerated classes are also available.

As a Cessna Pilot Center, BVFS performs all Private Pilot training in Cessna 172 Skyhawk and Cessna 162 Skycatcher.  BVFS operates both the classic analog instruments (round gauges) Cessna 172’s and the new state of art G1000 glass cockpit Cessna 172’s.  For Commercial, CFI ratings, and “Complex” endorsement, BVFS has a retractable gear aircraft, the Piper Cherokee Arrow (PA28R-200). BVFS will also do training in personally owned aircraft that are airworthy and well maintained.

Students must be at least sixteen years of age to solo and seventeen years of age to obtain a Private Pilot’s License. BVFS does provide training to younger students who don’t yet meet the FAA age requirements. However, for younger students, we recommend a less intensive part-time training schedule.

All non-US citizens, permanent residents included, must receive TSA approval prior to beginning flight training. However, if a foreign student wants to try flight training before deciding to commit to the process, he/she can do one Discovery Flight without the need of pre-approval. BVFS will help you in making the TSA approval process fast and easy. Call us to get started at 979-260-6322. If you are already familiar with the requirements, go to www.flightschoolcandidates.gov and register.

BVFS does not provide financial assistance. However, we can refer you to reputable financial assistance providers. For instance, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) can help you in financing for flight training. Go HERE to find out more.
