Total PPL estimate

Based on 50 hours total time:   $18,000 approx

Because we are an aero club, you are free to pay as you go, or in lump sums to make applicable. Many people complete their PPLs over time, flying as often as they can afford. Flying is at your convenience.
 
This estimate is based on 50 hours total time. This is the minimum requirement realistically it varies up to 65-70 hours. However, because flying is competency-based, total cost may vary.
