First Flight Private Pilot Course Index

Your actual flight training will consist of more flights than the thirteen flights listed, and the sequence may be adjusted to suit your individual circumstances. They should be supplemented with home study and ground instruction as directed by your personal flight instructor. Depending on your rate of progress, some flights will be flown more than once, and there will also be solo flights interspersed amongst these training sessions, which are intended to be flown with an instructor. FirstFlight online lessons are not specifically designed to serve as your sole preparation for the FAA written exam, although they will certainly assist you with that goal.
