Hub City Aviation’s Private Pilot Course is broken into three phases. The first phase focuses on preparing the student to take the controls as the sole occupant in the aircraft. During phase two the student will learn to pilot the aircraft to destination other than the home airport. In this cross-country flight-training phase, the student pilot learns how to pilot an aircraft across the Country to a favorite destinations. The last phase prepares the student pilot for the FAA Practical Test known as the “Practical.” Once these steps are completed, the student will be issued a private pilot license, which will allow him/her to fly alone or with passengers.
