There are numerous advantages that come with obtaining a private pilot license. It takes patience and determination, but at the end it is well worth the effort.
Learning to fly is not as expensive as one might think. The cost to earn a private pilot rating is estimated at around $8,000. This includes the instructor fee, ground school instruction, medical exam, knowledge test, and rental of the plane for about $90/hour (depending on the price of fuel).
The amount of time it takes to achieve your private pilot license depends on a lot of outside variables like time and money, so the more you fly, the faster and cheaper it can become!
