There is currently a demand for flight lessons around the country. As pilots are getting older there are projected pilot shortages in the future and with helicopter tourism and more law enforcement and news media choppers in the sky the demand for pilots continues.
A basic pilots license costs about $11,000 and takes about 40 hours to earn. A commercial license on the other hand costs about $60,000 and requires 1,000 to 2,000 hours of flight time. There’s no better time to learn to fly than now. Costs will continue to rise and the need for logged hours in flight means the sooner you start the better.
