Completed Checkrides

It is so rewarding to pass your Checkride for any Certificate or Rating! It is such a culmination of all your efforts. Thinking of completing an oral or flight with a Designated Pilot Examiner can cause a lot of fear in some people.  No worries, we prepare you well!  Our preparation for Checkride begins as soon as you start training.  We teach you about the FAA requirements, how to apply what you learn to real life, and help you be successful for passing your Checkride!

One of the smartest things a student can do is to 'combine' prep work for various ratings. We prepped Tim for his CFI AND CFI-I all while building his hours to 250 that he needed for his Commercial Certificate.
