Interested in a trial lesson?, or a more experienced pilot- we quite rightly want to know what it costs. Well - we all know private flying can be quite expensive.
While learning all kinds of new skills can seem to get more interesting and fun (eg foreign languages, musical instruments, scuba diving etc.) - Learning to fly at most airfields is largely unchanged.
For busy people, finding the time to dedicate up to 60+ hours of Flight Training plus ground school is a tall order. Yes, and that really is the average flying time (and most of it repetitive) to actually get a full pilots licence. Apple computers have demonstrated - 'a great product sees customers prepared to overlook the price'. We say flight training should try to emulate this idea, and emphasize the ‘experience of being a pilot’ over other factors.
Most people learn to fly for recreation - so its easy give up if it’s not enjoyable. That doesn’t mean every lesson has to be a 'walk in the park', but we think it’s time to consider savouring the 'Training Experience', and not see this as a tedious, but necessary evil. There are all sorts of interesting and rewarding things to do on the way to achieve your flying goals.
