How do I earn an FAA issued Private Pilot license? Or, a better question would be, “How can I earn piloting privileges (pilots license) to fly? The answer is… the FAA must certify you by flying under the tutelage of a FAA certified flight instructor. More specifically, you must attend a flight training school and train under a certified flight instructor, thus earning a pilot certificate. You must pass check rides, pass written and oral tests, and prove you can meet the FAA standards. Are you interested in a private pilot license or is it your dream to become a commercial pilot?
The question is, “why do you want to become a certified private pilot?” Are you looking to fly for fun (recreationally), or are you looking into a career as a commercial pilot? We can help you with either option.
Call us (844-iFLYEDU) and we can help you find the best option. If you dream about becoming a commercial pilot, and want to go beyond your Private Pilot license (commercial pilot license), we can help you with that too.
If you are interested in becoming a commercial pilot (career aviation) we recommend that you do your homework before you commit to a local flight school. Actually, we recommend that you take a look at Upper Limit Aviation or any other quality professional flight school before you commit to training.

As stated above, before anyone can legally fly an airplane or a helicopter they need to become a student pilot under the training of a certified flight instructor (hopefully through a quality flight school). Flying is obviously one very important part of the process of getting your pilot’s certificate, but it is only one part of the process. Before anyone can start flying solo they have to meet the basic requirements. For example, a student pilot must be at least 16 years old. They also must read, speak, and understand English and hold at least a current third-class medical certificate.
Many people believe that they need to earn a pilot’s “license”. However, the truth is, you earn a certificate. The FAA calls it a certificate yet most people will refer to a private pilot certificate as a private pilot license. Our recommendation is that you don’t get caught up in the terminology. For our purposes on this page we are going to refer to the certificate as a license. If you want to learn to fly and you want a pilot’s license, call ULA and get started today! Our job is to coach you through all your options, and help you find the right path forward.
What does it mean to get your pilot’s license (or certificate)? Getting your private pilot’s license will allow you to fly, but there are certain conditions and restrictions. With a single engine private pilots license you will be able to fly a single-engine airplane under visual flight rules (VFR) — which means with a visibility of at least three miles — as well as when flying at night. You may also be permitted to take passengers along, but you can’t charge them for the ride, although you may split costs with them. In essence, there is a lot to learn. Our Student Services Team can answer all your questions and guide you toward your next step. We are here to serve all your aviation needs.
