Training Requirements (By MINIMUM FAA Standards for 141):
In a Beechcraft Baron B-55
Study Kit: $310.95 (Jeppesen Kit contains CFI, CFII, and MEI Courses)
Dual: 25 Hours @ $385 / Hr (See Aircraft Page N4462S)
Instructor-Flight: 20 Hours @ $75 / Hr
Instructor-Ground: 20 Hours @ $75 / Hr
Although the syllabus is designed to meet Part 141 requirements, it can be used to meet Part 61 knowledge and proficiency requirements. Part 61 does not specify a minimum number of hours of flight or ground instruction for the flight instructor training. When the syllabus is used for training under Part 61, the applicant’s knowledge and proficiency level determines the number of hours required for flight and ground training.
You can read more about the detailed requirements and the privileges various licenses give you on the FAA’s Becoming a Pilot Web Page.
Please note that the cost above is for the course alone. Students will experience other charges prior to obtaining a certificate or rating such as: renter’s insurance, headset purchase or rentals, written exam, medical, checkride fees, etc.
We will provide you with the best flight training experience available. If at any time you do not feel that we are offering you the best training that you can receive, we will happily refund you all funds on account not yet used.
We will readily provide you with references from current and past students who have completed their rating in many less hours than the national average. Be sure you ask how many hours it takes students to complete ratings when shopping for flight training, and be sure that the school is able to provide you solid student references.
