Flight Training

You can become a pilot. EB Flight Training has helped several students successful pass the FAA practical exams required for each pilot certificate.

Here are the steps you take to become a private pilot:

Contact EB Flight Training to begin the application process.

Complete the contact form on our website to begin the application process. An instructor will contact you to assist with paperwork and answer any questions you may have.

Apply for a FAA medical certificate

Once the school accepts your application, your instructor will guide you through the process of getting a medical certificate. This process usually involves contacting an AME for a flight physical.

Apply for a FAA student pilot certificate

Your instructor will assist you in complete the IACRA paperwork to receive a student pilot certificate. This certificate is not required to start training, but will be required prior to solo.

Begin flight training lessons

Once you have completed the steps above, you will begin the flight training process. You will follow an approved curriculum and your instructor will assist you with your studies.

Pass the private pilot written exam

Typically the private pilot written exam is taken after your first solo flight. The written exam is a prerequisite for taking the practical exam with a designated pilot examiner.

Pass the private pilot practical exam

Once you meet all of the training requirements and have successfully passed the written exam, you will meet with a designated pilot examiner. The DPE will evaluate your technical knowledge and ability to operate an airplane safely.

Begin instrument training

Once you receive your private pilot certificate, the next logical step is to begin instrument pilot training.
