The short version...
A typical flying lesson will average between $240 - $280 per lesson.
The long version...
A typical flying lesson is based on a 2-hr block of time, so the
cost for the instructor's time will be 2x $50, or $100 a lesson.
Billing out flight instruction like this allows for crucial flight
briefings, both before and after each flying lesson.
A pre-flight briefing is important, because we want to establish
goals for each flight lesson and to make sure our clients know
what we are going to try to accomplish every time they come out
We use the post-flight briefing to talk about what you did right,
what you did wrong, and what you need to prepare for your next
flying lesson. This will help you maximize your learning each
time you come out to the airport. There is no point in spending
money on a flying lesson, if your instructor does not have time
to discuss it with you!
During your 2-hour lesson, you only pay for the airplane while
you are actually using the airplane. There is a timer in the airplane
(called a "hobbs
So, if you fly the airplane for exactly 1 hour during your 2-hour
lesson, you would pay $137 for the airplane and $100 for instruction,
which would come to $237 for that lesson. And if, for example,
you use the airplane for 1.3 hours, that would be $178.10 for
the airplane and $100 for instruction - or $278.10 for the lesson.
It should be noted, that some of our clients prefer longer lessons,
which means the cost of each lesson will be more.
Also, in the beginning of your training, there is so much material
to cover it's often a good idea to have some extra instruction
before/after each flight lesson to help bring things together.
