3 Things to Consider Before Choosing a Flight School

Choosing the right flight school is a complicated decision. There are various factors that you need to consider, as it is the first step in your flying career. To make the right decision, here are a few things you need to consider beforehand.

  • Full Cost of The Course: You don’t want any bad surprises after enrolling in flying school, do you? To prevent this from happening, you need to get the full cost estimation of the training and not just the hourly fees. Cirrus training is expensive. Knowing the total cost will help you plan your funds and ensure that you can complete your training in time.
     
  • Practical Training Curriculum: Most part-time instructors are paid per hour of flight instruction. Because of this, it may be a temptation for instructors to minimize the briefing as much as possible, and in return, you will not be getting the most out of your financial and time investment. So, make sure to opt for a school that emphasizes adequate briefings. Request the training curriculum and ensure that they provide you with a physical copy or a link to access it online. This will help you gain a better understanding of your program.
     
  • Proper Ground School: An important yet often overlooked part of flight training is the ground school. It can also be the most challenging part. A flight school that facilitates a ground school enables you to practice with mock exams, which are much more useful than just reading the theory. Yes, reading and learning the theory is important. But you can’t do much with it if you don’t have the opportunity to practice it, especially when it comes to flying a plane.
