PRIVATE PILOT COURSE
The investment is the course is $495.
You will need to purchase Prepar3D® and the Cessna 172 aircraft model separately.
You will also need some simulation peripherals.
If you want to do the course in Virtual Reality (VR), you will need a set of VR goggles.

The current problem in flight training is that the ground school is not very dynamic as it is mainly designed to pass the written knowledge test.
An airplane is also a difficult learning environment as it is a noisy, uncomfortable, stressful and expensive place to learn.
That is why we created a system of interactive structured learning activities to fill the gap between the ground school and the flight activities.
This course allows the student to fully prepare before a flight activity. When the student is prepared, more learning happens in the airplane. More learning in the aircraft means less flight time and that reduces the cost and duration of getting your wings.
The lessons require you to fly the aircraft within FAA pilot training standards, creating a level of professionalism that is unheard of in a simulated flight-training environment.
We do not expect you to succeed every mission on the first try. Just the opposite, as you are allowed to fail and try again until you have mastered the skill.
This program is suitable for any age. We have students that are in High School and some that are well over 50…
The very best way to become a pilot is to start young, so we recommend starting at high school (ages 14-17) as this gives you time to prepare for the Private Pilot’s License where you must be at least 16 years old.
Students at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs are using our program.
Click on the Test Flight menu item at the top of the page to demo four actual lessons.
We have airports all over the world; for example, we have mission lessons for soft field takeoff/landings at Ameland Airport, Netherlands and short field takeoff/landing at Tateyama Aiport, Chiba, Japan.
Our home base is in Ernest A. Love Field in Prescott, Arizona, United States.
The team who built the flight lessons consists of Raynald Bédard, Brian Wiesner, Stanley Westerman, Wang To (Benson) Hui, Cameron Forsberg, Justin Baird and Hannah Burright.
Their experience ranges from aviation professor to flight instructors and flight students.
We have a 15-day refund policy if you are not satisfied with our product, contact us and we will refund your purchase.
The briefings and videos are available on the courses website which can be accessible on any computer by logging in.
However, the license for Prepar3D® (P3D) is only compatible for one computer therefore you must do the simulations on the computer that has P3D installed.
We designed this course to be used with Prepar3D® Version 4.
While you can fly the missions with a joystick, we strongly recommend you invest in a yoke and a set of rudder pedals.
It all depends on the use and your budget.
