We believe that learning to fly and earning your private pilot license should be a fun and rewarding experience. We also want to make it affordable to you. By combining a quality flight and ground training program with reasonable prices.
How do I get started with the Learn to fly program?
Enjoy a Learn To Fly discovery flight. The lesson includes flight with a certified flight instructor. During the lesson, you will learn how to control the airplane. Then you will have the opportunity to fly the airplane yourself. Although the FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours of flight time, most students require more, usually around 50 to 60 hours. This figure is dependent on learning aptitude and how frequently you fly. By flying on a consistent basis, it is possible to reduce total training time because your retention of skills will be higher.
Ellworth Pilot Training Center has two payment plans:
- Pay as you fly.
- Draw down account: you pay $1000.00 and we add $50.00. You now have $1,050.00 for flight training.

Dispelling aviation myths.
Okay, let’s unravel two common myths that keep many potential pilots grounded.
Myth #1 – Pilots must have perfect vision.
Wrong! Civilian pilots can correct many vision imperfections by wearing glasses or contact lenses.
Myth #2 – Learning to fly takes years.
Not so. The time required to learn to fly is dependent on how frequently you train. Most people earn their wings in less than one year. With hard work, it’s quite possible to become a certificated pilot in a few months.
…ready, set, go! Learn to fly now.
