"The highest art form of all is a human being in control of himself and his airplane in flight, urging the spirit of a machine to match his own"
— Richard Bach

What makes our professional program different?
Other flight schools rent out services by the hour and give you a cost range based on unrealistic finishing times, usually 40 hours instead of the national average of 65. If you end up going over the estimate, they will usually blame you, and your original budget will be much higher. With this training model, it is in the school's best interest to keep you flying as long as possible. They do not care how long it takes you to finish and how much it will cost you. Valkyrie aviation's flat-rate tuition cost takes that out of the equation. It is in our best interest to finish your training as quickly and efficiently as possible since we cover everything at one flat rate. This program is only recommended for students who can attend 4 times a week. For anything less than that, we highly recommend joining our flight club.
What Can You Do with an Instrument Rating?
There will come a time in your flying journey that the weather will be just poor enough that a flight can not be completed under visual flight rules. Adding an Instrument Rating to your Private Pilot Certificate can help you be less bound by the weather, meaning less canceled trips.
