Full time students are expected to be active in their studies. Full time students will fly at least 2-3 hours a day, 5-6 days a week.
To fly an hour students are expected to prepare for at least 2 hours to maximize the benefit of the lesson. Students are expected to study for at least 4 hours for every hour in the classroom. Learning to fly is an intensive, emotional endeavor. It is not simply a physical manipulation of the controls. To stay on schedule, we book 6-7 days a week expecting to lose at least 1 day of the week to weather. Ground School is conducted in the evenings so that the daylight hours are for flying.
Part time students make their own schedules. Part time students may not stay in the student accommodations. A day in the life of a full time student
