trike on groundAfter you take an introductory flight, you’ll move to the front seat of the trike under the guidance of our instructor. Here you’ll have more control and a better view of the aircraft instrument panel.

We recommend scheduling early morning or late afternoon lessons, when flying conditions are the calmest.

Trike Pilot School trains pilots to FAA Sport Pilot standards. This requires 15 hours dual and 5 hours of supervised solo flight. You will be trained to FAA Practical Flight Test standards using Aviation Supplies & Academics (ASA) training materials.

We also supervise you through your self-paced ground school studies as per FAA written and practical test requirements.
