Flight Training

All students enrolled in the dual enrollment flight program agree to receive training towards achieving their Private Pilot License (PPL). This training is billed hourly on a “pay as you go” flight format and account.  Completion of the PPL relies heavily on the individual student’s dedication, motivation and skill as a pilot.  While there is no guarantee that every person enrolled will achieve the PPL rating, all efforts will be made so that this can happen, and a conducive flight environment will be made available for all.


All flight students must have a Private Pilot kit and a headset.  For more information call: (321) 674-6501 or email: madamsheck@fit.edu.
