An Experience within Your Reach!!

Fly!

It is probably something you have had in mind for a while. If you are an adventurous person, we are sure that

 at some point in your life, you have wondered how exciting it would be to be able to manipulate the controls of an airplane and how it would feel in reality !

Private Pilot

The Private Pilot certificate is the kind of certification that most student pilots first seek and receive when they begin their career as a Professional Pilot in Aviation. Whether you want to fly for pleasure, or for business use, or because you want to start a career as a Commercial Pilot. This is the certification with which it begins.

Requirements

  • Be at least 16 years old to fly solo.
  • Be at least 17 years old to receive your private pilot certificate.
  • Obtain at least a third-class medical certificate.
  • Pass a written knowledge exam.
  • Pass a final practical exam.

Ground School (Pilot Knowledge Test)

Students who enroll in this ground school course, will be completing the most important part of the requirements needed to obtain the FAA Private Pilot Certificate. This aeronautical knowledge exam focuses mainly on what applicants must know.

This 58-hour course, which includes flight simulation practice in ATD’s training devises among other resources like videos and stage practice tests, is to prepare the student to take the FAA Private Pilot written knowledge test.

A satisfactorily completed knowledge test expires 24 calendar-months after the month it was taken. We highly recommend, right after accomplishing the goal of passing the knowledge test, you should persevere towards your license by starting your flight training, which is the aeronautical experience. Within this 24-month period, you must complete your flight time requirements and pass the practical test. Other options to keep you proficient, is utilizing our flight simulators through the SIMPILOT membership program.

ATD Fixed Training Devices

CTC in conjunction with SIMPILOT is proud to announce the arrival and installation of its Fixed Training Devices ATD’s with integrated training services as the Air Traffic Control (ATC) live radio communication feature. These devices will be used during the Private Pilot Ground School Course.

The training is delivered by SIMPILOT utilizing the Elite PI-135 Basic Training ATD’s. Students will fly a total of 10 Hours in this device. Broken down as:

  • First Week (3 Hours) Intro Flight. Preflight Planning. Powerplant and Systems. Straight and level flight, turns, climbs and slow flight. Introduction to Traffic Patterns, Normal/crosswind T’O’s and landings.
  • Second Week (4 Hours) Introduction to radio communication procedures. Traffic Patterns, entry, and departure procedures. Ground reference maneuvers. Airplane V’s speeds management.
  • Third Week (3 Hours) Introduction to x-country flying. Emergency procedures, equipment, simulated engine malfunctions and Go-arounds.

Flight Training (Pilot Practical Exam)

After finishing the gound school course, and passing the written knowledge test, you may begin flight training using actual airplanes. So, you need to receive flight instruction from a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI). The FAA requires 40 hours of actual flight training to earn a Private Pilot License. This includes completing your first solo flight, day and night flying, cross-country and other types of flight training requirements. These skills can be supplemented in a flight simulator.

Once your Flight Instructor feels you are ready, he or she will arrange the final practical test with an FAA Examiner. The practical exam focuses on what applicants must consider (risk) and do (skill). When the practical test is passed, you are now an official Private Pilot.

Monitoring your Flight Proficiency (MFP)

Unfortunately, there is an abundance of evidence showing an inadequate lack of skills proficiency in today’s pilots.
Pilots are not exercising the same duties all the time and are hardly flying the same procedures, as for example IFR recurrency, it is a significant problem in the air transport industry. Simpilot monitors your flight proficiency progress by making available the use of FAA approved flight simulators. Any time that a particular endorsement check or recurrent proficiency deadline is approaching, our MFP program will begin to send you reminders by text and/or email to fulfill that requirement.

Job placement Program

Job Placement is a free service that Simpilot offers to its pilot members to find employment. Simpilot works with several large and small domestic, international airlines, and aviation companies, for whom they screen and place pilots for both temporary and permanent positions. This type of assistance usually includes a combination of career counseling and skills assessment, along with guidance on writing a resume, drafting a cover letter, and filling out a job application. After that step is completed, then we can help the pilots to find appropriate available positions and prepare them for their interviews.

Building Flight Time Assistance Program

Building flight time is important, especially if you are working towards a career as a professional pilot. There are few creative ideas that will help you build flight time hours: becoming a Flight Instructor, volunteering for a charitable cause or train for a new endorsement or rating, and becoming a member of the “Simpilot Flying Club”, which is an organization developed with aircraft owners in mind, who hardly ever fly their airplanes and are willing to rent them at a low cost, being this option the one that saves you more time and money. We created this program in response to the recent increase of the flight time experience requirements needed to obtain your airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate.

Promote and re-enforce safety.

To keep pilots safe while flying, «safety always comes first«.
Aviation welfare is especially important because there are lives involved in every operation of the aircraft. Safety must be the number one priority for every pilot in all aspects of their flight. We at
Simpilot, provide information on new safety risk control and corrective actions as well as the newly amended safety procedures. Through simulation, we promote a positive safety culture and encourage pilots to always maintain awareness of safety.
 

Personalize Guidance and Orientation

Our Pilot Orientation Plan has been designed to be simple and affordable for future students who would take the first steps towards acquiring their Private Pilot License, on their way to becoming Commercial Pilots. Simpilot’s new method of flight training using simulation, gathers all the necessary and important factors that simplify while at the same time accelerate the learning and assimilation process that will be incorporated later in real life situations.

 

Monitoring your Flight Training

By being a member of Simpilot, we are dedicated to keep your flight training safer, smarter, and in good standings with all the aspects of becoming a well verse mindful pilot; even though, the actual flight training is provided in partnership with our flight school associates. We have ensured the efficiency of your flight training experience, by providing a high-quality professional learning environment. We can provide the tools for success, by monitoring the academic progress of our students. The first and most important tool is motivation, the second is dedication, and the third is willingness to achieve your future goals.
