Welcome to the excitement and challenge of flight training. Flying is a wonderful privilege. It allows you to develop a level of skill, confidence and self-reliance that is not found in other pursuits. Whether you are a beginner or continuing your flight training; whether your personal dream is to fly for pleasure or to become a professional pilot, Learn To Fly San Diego will bring out the best in your potential and you will realize the dream of flying. Less than one third of one percent of the population have ever commanded the controls of an airplane and flown through the magnificent and beautiful sky. Flying is one of the most fun, exhilarating, and magical activities you will ever experience in your lifetime. You can begin today by calling and making an appointment for your very first flight, where you will sit in the captain's seat and learn some of the fundamentals of flying,... including your first takeoff!

San Diego, California
Situated on the Pacific Ocean in Southern California, San Diego is one of the most beautiful cities in the United States. During the day, you can visit the downtown area with its shopping malls and boardwalk. At night, you can discover a rich variety of restaurants, theaters, and clubs. The many beach areas are alive with surfing, sailing, and rollerblading. From the air, Southern California provides some of the most majestic natural beauty in the United States. There are long white beaches, rugged snow-capped mountains and colorful deserts - and from the air, these sights become absolutely breathtaking. The area is dominated all year by the Pacific high pressure zone, making the weather the best in mainland USA. While news reports may tell of flooding, thunderstorms, hurricanes, and snowstorms in other areas, in San Diego the weather remains predictably warm and dry.

Montgomery Field Airport, San Diego is an ideal training airport in an ideal location with three hard-surfaced runways, VASI lights, REIL lights, and an ILS approach. An FAA control tower ensures traffic sequencing and separation which increases safety and allows new pilots to gain valuable radio communications experience. For more advanced students, several different instrument approaches are available within a twenty mile radius; during the later stages of advanced training, the busy Los Angeles airspace can also be utilized. The pilot training facilities at Learn To Fly San Diego include modern well-equipped study and briefing areas, flight simulator, the flight planning area, and a lounge. The pilot supply shop, FAA Control Tower, and Cafes are all near by.

Flight Training will be broken down into easy to understand blocks of instruction. Once a block has been successfully completed you move on to the next in logical sequence. After training flights, you will have post flight de-briefings on the areas you need work on and the areas you excelled in. You will also be given notice of what the next lesson will cover and the materials you need to review or complete in order to be properly prepared. This integrated training method is proven and the skills you learn will transfer to other more sophisticated aircraft and ratings. The training programs extend from the initial Private Pilot Certificate, Instrument Rating, through Commercial Single and Multi-Engine aircraft ratings. Each course is highly structured, and you will receive a course outline which integrates both ground and flight instruction. For each period of training, we will use a syllabus with specific objectives, your progress will be evident throughout your training and you will advance at your own pace. Instruction is on a one-to-one basis to ensure that you receive the full benefit of expertise, whatever your level of experience.

FAA General Requirements:
Be 17 years of age for the Private Pilot License (16 to fly solo).
Be 18 years of age for the Commercial Pilot License.
Pass the appropriate FAA medical examination.
You must be able to read, speak and understand the English language.

Aircraft used for flight training are maintained to FAA standards and beyond. Inspections completed are 50 hour, 100 hour, and annual. Dual controls are fitted in every aircraft to ensure compliance with FAA regulations and increased safety. All aircraft have dual VHF communications radios, VORs, ILS receiver, DME, and ADF. At first, you will fly a Cessna 172 or Piper Archer II airplane. Instrument training is completed in fully IFR-equipped aircraft, while multi-engine aircraft, like the twin-engine six-seat Piper Seneca, are used in the later stages of advanced training. You can enter a program at any level. We will tailor a course to meet your exact needs and build on any previous experience
