You can earn your Private Pilotâs License in as little as six months at a fraction of the cost of an off base facility. Earning your license is a two-stage affair. You must pass a written test and then a flying test given by FAA examiners. To prepare for your tests, the club offers a study kit. This allows you to study at your own pace for the written test, or we can help you sign up for a ground school. Whichever way you like to do it, the Flying Club has an option for you.
