If you are a U.S. citizen, you can begin training to become a professional pilot today! It all starts with the introductory flight. Your introductory flight takes you and a trained instructor on an approximately 30-minute-long flight to familiarize you with the airplane, the airport and the general awe of taking the controls of a safe, reliable Cessna aircraft for the first time, thousands of feet above the earth.
After your first flight, you will register with the school. You will then need to provide proof of U.S citizenship by bringing your U.S. Passport or Birth Certificate and Government issued photo I.D. You will also need to get an FAA Medical Certificate and Student Pilot Certificate from an Aviation Medical Examiner. Although it is not required to begin your training, it is recommended that you get the Medical and Student Pilot Certificate as soon as possible, in order to ensure that there are no unforeseen medical problems. You are now ready to begin your flight training.
