While the FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours of flight time to earn a private pilot certificate, the national average runs around 70+ hours. At Alpha One, we are dedicated to provide the necessary flight instruction through programs designed with safety and efficiency in mind. Our students become certified in an average of just less than 55 hours- consequently reducing the average cost of training for a private pilot certificate.
What’s more, our training center is located just north of Charlotte, NC at the Concord Regional Airport (KJQF). The airport is a tower controlled facility providing students with the necessary experience in communication with live ATC.
Alpha One offers flexibility in scheduling to accommodate the needs of our students. We are able to provide flight instruction at a pace comfortable to each student- whether you want to go full throttle and follow a fast track to completion or if a more modest pace is what is comfortable for you. Call us today and get started on your path to become a pilot.
