How to Become a Pilot?

To earn a private pilot certificate you have to:

  • Pass a 60-question written test from the FAA (If you are getting training from Fly8MA, then we guarantee that you will pass this test!)
  • Obtain an aviation medical certificate by passing a flight physical from an FAA approved doctor.
  • Pass an FAA “Checkride”. This exam is divided into two parts, wherein the first half you will be answering examiner questions for 90 minutes or so and then you take a test flight with them for 1.5 to 2 hours.

Why Should I Enroll in Fly8MA Online Ground School?

By completing the online ground school here at first, your flight training will be much cheaper and quicker. We make sure you are well prepared for your written FAA exam so you get it through in the first attempt. Once you pass your written exam, you can shift your entire focus on flight training. This also helps in getting through the training much faster and with less frustration because you already have the basic knowledge for what you’ll be learning and practicing in the airplane.

THANK YOU for such a tremendous educational opportunity!”
