Frequently Asked Questions
What's your instructor staff like? Are they experienced? - At Piston2Jet we aim to provide the best flight training experience possible. We can do this by providing the most experienced instructor staff in the region who, collectively, have a vast experience base from careers in military aviation, corporate aviation, and the airlines.
Who maintains and inspects your aircraft? - Our aircraft are maintained in-house by on-staff maintenance personnel and they're assisted by a trusted local maintenance operation. Having on-staff maintenance gives us an elevated level of quality control that you just can't get when you farm out all maintenance to third party vendors.
What types of flight training do you offer? - We provide flight training to those seeking a private pilot's license all the way up to providing advanced and technical flight training to aviation organizations and professionals.
Can we visit your flight school before making a decision on where to train? - Yes! We encourage everyone seeking information on flight training to do as much research as possible which includes visiting all of the flight schools in your local area.
How do I become a military pilot? Do you offer mentorship and training to become more competitive for a pilot training slot? - There are several ways to become a military pilot each with their own challenges and hurdles to overcome. Piston2Jet's cadre of current and former military pilots can provide flight training and advising to help you reach your goals.
Do you offer introductory flight lessons? - Yes! We offer introductory flight lessons for those in the research phase of starting flight training as well as to those who want to try something new. Introductory flight lessons make great gifts!
How much does flight training cost? - The cost will vary upon the type of training you're doing, the airplane being used, and your commitment to the effort. A private pilot's license can cost between $9,000 and $15,000 overall and take anywhere between three months to a year to complete. The more often you train, the harder you study, and the more time you commit to the effort the less you'll spend and the less time it will take overall. One of the largest factors is the hourly rental of the airplane used for your training.
What other services does Piston2Jet provide in the flight training market? - In addition to primary through advanced flight training we also host free aviation career seminars annually, conduct educational topic seminars, provide career guidance and counseling to schools and universities, provide government aviation services, and host unique flight training opportunities.
What materials, books and study aids do you use? - Piston2Jet uses the (FAA) Federal Aviation Administration textbooks that are available free to anyone. We do not believe in requiring our students to purchase expensive textbooks and materials sets that are only relevant to one or two training programs. FAA texts are always updated and available for download HERE. Your instructor will advise you of which texts to download when you begin your training program.
What equipment/materials do you recommend? - Having the right equipment will make your training experience much smoother and more efficient. Below is our recommended equipment list.
