Please note that while Greg encourages you to take the first steps to earning a Private Pilot certificate, he does not currently offer Private Pilot training. He focuses on advanced (Instrument & higher) ratings in Cirrus aircraft only.
Learning to fly. You probably have wanted to do this since you were a kid. Now’s the time. Whether this will be a new career or you’re finally going to start a new hobby, flying will hook you forever.
- Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly a plane?
- Do you love the thrill of watching the world drop away?
- Have you dreamed of taking off on a new adventure?
- Do you want to feel the joy of getting away from it all?
- Make your dream come true – start flying!
Imagine setting your own schedule, avoiding airport security delays, and not worrying about lost luggage. As a private pilot, you call the shots. You decide where to go and when to take off. All that flexibility means more time to focus on your business, your favorite pastimes – and your family.
It won’t be long at all before you take off on your first solo flight. In fact, you can earn your pilot certificate in as little as 6 months part-time, or faster if you fly more frequently.
Learning to fly is a lot like learning to drive. Your flight instructor will be right beside you to teach you everything you need to know. But from your very first flight, you’ll be in the pilot’s seat.
To have your questions answered and to set up an introductory flight, get in touch with your local flight school and they’ll set you up! Locally here in the Bay Area: Tradewinds at Reid-Hillview (San Jose) and West Valley Flying Club (Palo Alto) are known good schools.
