Medical Qualifications

The FAA requires every pilot have a medical certificate based on an examination by a licensed FAA Aviation Medical Examiner.  Your first medical is also your student pilot certificate.  There is a list of FAA medical examiners on the FAA web site.  We can also help you find a local examiner.  A Third Class Medical is all that is required for flight training and instructing.  If you are planning on making aviation a career, we urge you to get a First Class Medical exam.  This will let you know if there are any health problems that will disqualify you from becoming a professional pilot.  We want to help you achieve your dreams, not train you for a career that you are ineligible for.

Flight instruction at Skys Aircraft Corporation is provided as governed by Part 61 of the Code of Federal Regulations.  Part 61 regulations permit us to provide instruction in an organized manner while being able to adjust the training to fit the student's needs.  What does this mean to you?  We don't have to fit you in to a strict syllabus that doesn't have room for change.  Instead, we can adjust the lessons to fit the student whenever necessary. 


Individual Ratings or Time Building can start at any time.  Please give 2 weeks notice if you are coming from out of town and need housing.

... Additional Information
Books, Supplies, Written and Practical Tests

Prices listed for training include the cost of renting the aircraft, instruction, fuel and tax.  There are other costs to budget for when learning to fly.


Books and Charts - At a bare minimum you will need the appropriate text books, maps,  FAA publications and a log book.  There are many books that you can use to supplement your studies.  Skys does not include books in the price because we don't want to force you to purchase something that you will not use.  Only you know your study habits and the materials that you like to have.  You must plan accordingly.  Keep in mind that aviation charts and publications are updated periodically.  This is just a fact of life.  Every 56 days you will be buying some up to date FAA materials.
Training Time and Cost

Approximate cost for flight courses are based on Minimum FAA Requirements.  Minimums are minimums (not typical, average or usual) but you can keep your training time down if you study and fly frequently (three times a week).  You have the most impact on how much flight training costs based on your study habits, time to devote to frequent lessons and preparation before flights.  Skys instructors will do everything we can to keep the costs to a minimum.

You will notice that there is not an over abundance of time allotted to Ground Instruction in our pilot programs... especially in the Professional Pilot Programs.  When you come here you must be prepared to study and read the material necessary.  Skys Instructors will devote as much time for ground instruction as is needed but, if you want to keep the price down, you should come to your lessons well prepared.  If you are prepared and study on your own then you will save a significant amount of money and time.

At Skys, we only charge for the time we give instruction so that you are 100% in control of the money you spend.  The Ground Instruction listed in the program pricing is not mandatory.  It's just what we have found to normally be necessary for the average to above average student.

Withdrawal or Cancellation

Students may cancel their enrollment any time prior to school arrival without penalty or obligation and receive a full refund within 30 days.  If a student withdraws from one of our Professional Pilot Programs after training has begun but prior to completion of the course, the billing will be adjusted to regular hourly rates.  Monies will be refunded within 30 days after official withdrawal, minus adjustments.
Dress Code

Skys Aircraft is a casual atmosphere but professionalism is still encouraged.  Shirts with profanity, suggestive language or torn shirts are prohibited.  Students must also wear closed toe shoes for flight training (i.e. no sandals).
Supplies - Another thing that varies in flight training is the amount of supplies that students need/want to have.  For private pilot training, the minimum for supplies is a plotter, E6B, a view limiting device and a headset.  Some students use just those things while others like to have everything under the sun (including handheld GPS and backup transceivers). 

Skys has headsets that you can borrow for the beginning of your training.  If you are a Time Builder or are enrolled in one of our Professional Pilot Programs you will be required to supply your own headset.

Written and Practical Tests - FAA ratings and certifications require many different written and practical tests.  The price for these tests is not included in the cost of each program.  This cost can be kept to a minimum if you do your part in the training (Study).  Written tests typically cost $90 and practical tests are approximately $300 (depending on the Designated Pilot Examiner).
