Hub City Aviation Course Interest

Below you will find information that will make your decision to take flight training easier to get “Cleared for Takeoff.”

What can I expect during flight training?

How long does it take to learn to fly and get a pilot certificate?

The same variables that affect the cost of learning to fly will affect the time it takes to earn your certificate. The FAA has established the minimum number of flight hours needed to obtain a certificate. Under Part 61 of the federal aviation regulations, the minimums are 40 hours for a private pilot certificate. However, we believe that a true average flight training time for a private pilot is between 50 hours and 60 hours; completion times of 60 to 70 hours are not uncommon. These flight hours can be spread over a time span of several months to a year or more. We find that the frequency of training and student preparation outside of class a large factors in the time and cost of the training.

How much does it cost?
There are a lot of variables that affect the cost of learning to fly, including the frequency of flight lessons, weather conditions, the kind of aircraft in which you are training and its availability for scheduling, and individual aptitude. A rough estimate would range between $8,000 and $10,000, depending on the certificate being sought.

When do I start?

Hub City Aviation has a rolling admission policy. That means we can admit students at any time. However, new students are encouraged to schedule a introductory flight that will allow you to learn what flight lessons will be like. Complete all the required paperwork and meet with instructors to gain a personalized plan for your training.

I’m ready. What do I do now?

Call Hub City Aviation at 806-687-1070 or come by the school. We are located at the Lubbock International Airport. To begin training you will need to complete a short admission packet and provide Hub City Aviation with a copy of a US passport or birth certificate, a current drivers license and some basic financial information to secure aircraft rentals.

Can I rent Hub City Aviation aircraft once I have completed training?
YES! Hub City Aviation will allow any of our aircraft to be rented by pilots for cross country trips across town or across the country. Please consult our aircraft rental page for more details.
