and Cost of Training
Each student is different and learns at a different pace.
The duration of your training will vary with your goals and
time available. Four to ten months is an average time investment
for earning a private pilot certificate. "Guaranteed packages" typically are marketing ploys that usually bear
no resemblance to reality since they are based on an underestimated and
unrealstic number of flight hours and ground training needed to
meet the certifcation requirements. The national average flight time
required is 60-80 hours depending on location. Also,they usually
do not include all the associated non-flight training costs involved in
the certification preocess. Oakland Flyers includes these assciated costs in its estimated cost, and does not offer
"guaranteed packages". We
have compiled estimates of training costs that will give you a
more realistic idea of the financial commitment necessary for you
to reach your goals. These figures will vary from student to student.
How quickly it takes a person to absorb the neccessary knowledge
and skills determines the costs. Factors such as age, life
distractions, study committment, and frequency of lessons affect the
time it takes. For more information, refer to our Flight Training page.
"Pay as you fly". Oakland Flyers allows each student to determine his
or her own methods of payment. This financial flexibility allows
students to start immediately and tailor their flying to their
finances. School members can realize a 10% saving when depositing US
$500 or more in advance, and maintaining a posditive balance in thier
account. For further member convenience, we accept both Visa and
Oakland Flyers is located at the Oakland International Airport,
on the beautiful San Francisco Bay. The Oakland airport is
an FAA tower controlled airfport with all the services
of a metropolitan air terminal. Being
located in some of the busiest airspace in the U.S., it qualifies
our students to fly comfortably anywhere once certificated.
The San Francisco bay area and Northern California are beautiful
and provide an interesting and varied environment for flight
training. Minutes to the West is the stunning Pacific coastline,
a little over an hour to the East are the spectacular snow
capped Sierra Nevada mountains.
