Busy schedules and unpreferable weather conditions are just a couple of reasons why you may struggle to find a good time to take your private flight training. Because the FAA requires a minimum of 35 hours for Part 141 schools which Twin cities Flight Training is, and 40 hours of flight training for Part 61 schools in order to obtain a private license, students must find the time to complete all 35 or 40 or more hours depending on how much time they can allocate to finishing their Private Certificate. After completing the required hours of training, students must then pass the practical exam.


Individual requirements and learning curves can affect how quickly a student completes their training, which is why you may want to consider taking Twin Cities Flight Training’s 21-day accelerated course. There are several benefits to taking the accelerated flight training course.


Save Time | Throughout the course of a few months or even a year, a lot of unforeseen obstacles can slow down the process of obtaining your Private Pilot License. Rather than stretching your training out over several months, commit three weeks of intensive training to quickly and efficiently complete your necessary hours. In just a matter of a few short weeks, the accelerated flight training allows you to prepare for your exam and get your license.


Save Money | Because the traditional training for your Private Pilot’s License is conducted around your abilities and schedule, you may end up spending more money on extra hours of training you require. The national average for students completing their Private Pilot Certificate is 77 hours. An accelerated training course can prevent you from retaking classes and spending excess time attempting to complete your training. Students at Twin Cities Flight Training who have completed their Private under the accelerated program average 42 hours of flight time when they take their check ride. This is a savings of 35 hours over the national average and a savings of 10 hours over our traditional students who fly 3-4 times a week and finish their Private Certificates in three months. This can save you a significant amount of money that can be used for follow on training like the Instrument Airplane rating.



Quality Time With Instructor | Taking the accelerated private flight training course can allow you to connect and get to know your instructor more quickly compared to the traditional training. Spending several hours a week for three weeks straight can quickly encourage a sense of comfort and familiarity with your instructor. This may make you feel more comfortable to ask your instructor questions and allow your instructor to gather a better sense of your learning style and individual abilities.


Retain Information Better | Private flight training courses not only prepare you for your exam, but they also prepare you to be a responsible and successful pilot. Similar to other educational courses in your life, you will have an easier time retaining important information if you learn all your material in a shorter time span. Spreading out your training may cause you to forget important key information in between sessions. During the 21 days, you are taking the accelerated course, you will be immersed in all the knowledge needed to be a successful pilot.
