Become a Pilot

Grayhawk Flight Training offers flight training programs for the following certificates and ratings:

Private Pilot

Earning your FAA private pilot's certification is the greatest and most memorable achievement any pilot can do.  The FAA private pilot certification gives you the freedom to fly, with passengers, anywhere in the world.  Whether you are looking to fly for fun or eventually fly as a career, this is the first step to achieving those goals.

Requirements

- Be at least 17 years of age

- Be able to read, speak, and understand the English language

- Obtain at least a current third-class medical certificate

- Receive a minimum of 40 hours of flight time including training and solo flight

- Pass a knowledge test as well as the practical test

Instrument Pilot

Are you ready to take your flying to the next level?  As an instrument pilot you can legally fly in the clouds, rain and fog.  Normally these inclement weather conditions would keep a VFR-rated pilot on the ground.  At Grayhawk Flight Training, we will teach you to trust your instruments to fly the airplane, instead of outside visual cues. 

 

Requirements

- Be at least a private pilot

- Receive a minimum of 50 hours of flight time as pilot in command, of which at least 40 hours of actual or simulated instrument training

- Learn to do VOR, RNAV & ILS approaches as well as holds

Commercial Pilot

As a commercial pilot, you will be able to fly for hire.  With this privilege, you are also expected to fly with a higher degree of skill and proficiency.  At Grayhawk Flight Training, we will teach you the added maneuvers required to obtain your FAA commercial pilot's certificate.
