Earn Your Wings At Fischer Aviation
It all starts here! Whether you want to earn your private pilot certificate to fly somewhere on vacation, visit family, travel more freely for business, or if your goal is to one day fly heavy jets for an airline, your private pilot certificate is the first step.
We are just 30 minutes outside of NYC and easily accessible through public transportation.
Fischer Aviation will ensure you get the most comprehensive training from the very beginning. While many schools may teach you the "how" during your flight training, we will also teach you the "why". Learning the "why" is critical in the development of a safe, forward thinking pilot. We stress real world scenarios. Students begin to develop the mental skill set to make solid decisions with instructor supervision and advice.
As a certificated private pilot you may fly and carry passengers day or night under visual flight rules (VFR). While you may not fly for hire, you can split the operating costs with your passengers.
The FAA required amount of flight time to get a private license is 40 hours. However, most people will take a little longer than that to become a pilot. Plane & Pilot magazine writes, "The national average, however, indicates that the typical student pilot tends to require more than 70 hours of training, regardless of the type of school, to earn a private-pilot license." This is not true for everyone and many of our students learn with considerably less time, but, as with any type of training, the more you dedicate to it, the quicker it will go.
