The King Schools Private Pilot Syllabus provides a curriculum of instruction for the FAA required aeronautical knowledge areas using King Schools, Inc. courses and a structured flight training program for airplanes leading to a Private Pilot Certificate (“license”). This curriculum is designed for an individual with zero piloting experience to achieve their private pilot certificate in as little as 35 hours of ground instruction and *35 hours of flight instruction.
*Note: You should be aware that for a variety of valid reasons, the average time needed to complete a private pilot course is 60-90% greater than the 35-flight hour minimum. Longer training times can be attributed to the increasing complexity of airspace near many airports where flight training is offered and interruptions in training while progressing through the curriculum.
This organized sequence of ground and flight lessons build on basic awareness, elementary concepts and skills to achieve the higher level of physical skills, knowledge, and risk management tools. You will gain a keen understanding of the risks associated with flying and learn effective ways to manage those risks giving you a logical path for safe, fun ways to exercise your piloting privileges.
Upon successful completion of this syllabus, as a holder of a Private Pilot certificate, you will be authorized to fly single-engine airplanes carrying passengers during visual flight rules (VFR) weather conditions.
