Sessions generally last 2 hours. A standard flight lesson involves 10-15 minutes of pre-flight briefing, 45-90 minutes of flying, and 10-15 minutes of debrief. We recommend a minimum of one session per week with 2-3x per week being ideal.
You have the choice of video or textbook based home study. St. Louis Flight Training recommends the Cessna/King Private Pilot Course.
For the cheaper option, we offer a text based curriculum combined with ASA Private Pilot Course.
We employ "integrated" flight training which combines self study material in combination with 1 on 1 review. Study and fly at your own pace!
