The Objective
The goal of the Pilot QuickStart™ flight training program is to provide individuals with the opportunity to experience piloting an airplane with minimal investment of time and money. For many participants, the Pilot QuickStart program will provide all of the fun and excitement of flying they will ever need. Others will find themselves hooked on flying and use the QuickStart program as an accelerated starting point for a more extended flying adventure. Most of the time, and all of the study, from the Pilot QuickStart program can count towards additional pilot certifications. The program can be completed in 5 days.
