What’s a Private Pilot?

A Private Pilot Certificate is a lot like a driver’s license. With few exceptions, fly what you want, where you want, and with whoever you want, whether it’s a weekend getaway to the coast or a multi-week journey around the country.

Becoming a pilot is a privilege that’s earned through hard work and skill, but for those inclined the reward is intangible. It’s freedom unparalleled.
