Are You a Pilot?

Professionalism and discipline

Pilots need to be professional all the time. They follow the rules, stick to procedures, and put passengers' safety and comfort first.

Strong situational awareness

Pilots must know what's going on around them to make safe choices. They need to be good at understanding the weather, other planes, and their own aircraft.

Cool under pressure

Pilots need to stay relaxed and collected when things get stressful. They have to stay focused and make smart decisions, even in difficult or emergency situations.

Excellent at communication

Pilots need to communicate effectively. They have to share important information clearly and listen carefully to instructions and updates.

Is Flight Training Safe?

When you think about learning to fly, it's normal to worry about safety. But at Sun City Aviation Academy, safety is our top priority. We take safety seriously in every part of your training. The aviation industry is all about safety, and we follow that commitment in our flight training.

The NTSB reported that the fatal accident rate for general aviation has been declining for over a decade, and in 2020, it reached its lowest level ever recorded.

Safety is the priority at Sun City. Our team is made up of well trained experts and our planes are always in top shape thanks to regular maintenance and inspections.

How Much is Flight Training Going to Cost?

The cost of flight training varies greatly depending on a number of factors such as type of training, the student's aptitude and experience level, and the type of aircraft used.

Although the actual cost of flight training can vary widely, plan to budget around $10,000 to $15,000 for private pilot fixed wing. To get more details on hourly rates, program pricing, and potential financing options; give us a call today and speak to a Sun City Aviation Academy team member.
