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 to fly to your favorite destinations.
