How Long does it take to Learn to fly?
We normally say expect more than 10 hours and hope for less than 20 hours to get to the point of solo. Also use your age as a gauge. Our average customer's age is 65 years old. All things being equal, if you are younger, you may have a learning advantage, if you are over 65 you may have to work a little bit harder. Student training times over the last 2+ decades to date have been 5.9 hours to 46.2 hours with an average around 18-23 hours of training. This training can usually be accomplished in 10-14 days. Once solo, we recommend flying your new toy around for no less than 90 days before prepping for the test if you are seeking a license (part 103 does NOT require a license). About 80% of your time, money and efforts actually go into your solo training, so once you are solo, you are usually well "over the hump"
During the day
Fun for the whole family! Just 20 minutes from the swimming and kayaking "Lagoon"

Things to consider:
Will you keep your trike at an airport in a hangar, or store it in a trailer. And which models and wings are best.
Do you want to do long cross country flying, or low and slow flying, or maybe a different task.
If you start with a smaller trike and want to trade up later, are there any programs for that.
If you are already licensed, but don't fly trikes, can you just add a rating without an exam.
What is the length of your available runway? Our models require 500' up to 1200' unobstructed.
What is your field elevation you will be taking off from?
How much wind can a new trike pilot handle. And how much wind can the actual trike handle with an experienced pilot.
What if you failed or lost your medical in the past. What are your options to fly trikes.
What 2 things are responsible for the vast majority of accidents in a trike, and how does that differ from airplanes.
Note the execution of the landings of all 3 students.
Bill Stockfield trained with Larry Mednick at the age of 75. He is now a Weight shift control Sport pilot with over 1,000 logged landings!
