The dream of flight captures many but only a few have the will to push forward and begin their training to become licensed pilots. Student pilots today have to make decisions about the initial pilot certificate they will pursue… Private Pilot, Recreational Pilot, or Sport Pilot.
So, with all of these options, how can a new student pilot make a decision about the initial pilot certificate they should pursue? The following series of questions should provide a starting point.
1. Do you have any current or past medical issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiac disease, etc that may keep you from passing an FAA medical exam?
2. Can you pass the FAA medical exam? Do you have limited budget and/or time to complete your initial pilot training?
3. Do you have good health, several hours per week for flight training, and cost is not a major obstacle?
