Taking Flight, Taking to The Skies
Becoming a private pilot opens the door to flying a wide variety of aircraft to thousands of airports around the world.
With a private pilot license, you can take to the skies with family, friends or business associates in a single engine airplane, day or night, under visual flight rules (VFR). Under VFR, the weather must be good enough to allow you to visually navigate the aircraft and to visually maintain separation from obstacles and other aircraft.
You may carry passengers on personal business, but not for hire or compensation, although you may share expenses like fuel, oil and rental charges.
If you want to fly for hire, an Instrument Rating is the next step after the private pilot certificate. Instrument pilots learn to control the aircraft solely by referring to the aircraft’s instruments. With an instrument rating you’ll be able to fly in a greater variety of weather conditions, such as through clouds, fog, rain and areas of low visibility.
Being a pilot is one of the most rewarding hobbies in the world and it can be one of the most fun jobs there is.
