If you're a prospective professional pilot you need to ask yourself these questions...
What value am I getting by flying at an expensive program? What is my $60,000 to $70,000 in flight fees getting me? The truth is not as much as you should get. If you could go through one of these programs, graduate and get a job that paid twice as much as people paying half those amounts fine you might have an argument. The reality is you will be doing the same jobs and getting paid the same as people who have spent a lot less.
Why not get great training and save $20,000 to $30,000? At Third Coast Aviation we believe in better instructors teaching people to be great pilots in equipment that is safe, fun and economical. This equation helps prospective professional pilots get the best return on their investment in flight training. We say pursue your four year degree, enjoy college and study hard, but for your flight training come to Third Coast Aviation.
