Late and Cancelled Lessons Policies Procedures and Rates

Late Arrival by Students to Lessons

To the greatest extent possible, we request our students to be on time and prepared for their scheduled lessons.  We will make every effort to have the aircraft serviced and be ready to teach students at the scheduled time.  A student that is late can severely impact other students  training schedule.

Your training time starts at the time you have scheduled.  We request you arrive at that time.  Chronically late students will be charged for their training time missed.  At the instructor’s discretion, the flying portion of the lesson may be shortened or canceled.

Our rates for Flight Training, Ground Instruction and Aircraft Rental

Learning to fly is a blend of Ground Instruction and Flight Training.  The ground portion of your training is every bit as important as your flight training. This time includes pre-flight briefing and objectives, planing and preparations and discussion of the lesson’s Plan Of Action.

Ground and Flight Instruction is billed at:    $40.00 per hour

Aircraft Rental is billed at:  $130.00 per hour (WET – including fuel)

The amount billed is payable at the end of each lesson unless other arrangements have been made with our Chief Instructor: Mike Matthews. We accept all major credit cards, checks with proper I.D. or cash.

Cancelling a scheduled lesson

Please give us 24 hour notification if you will not be able to attend a scheduled lesson. Charges may be billed on lessons cancelled with less than 24 hour notice.  Please call your instructor when cancelling a scheduled lesson.  Chronic cancellation of scheduled lessons may lead to termination of your flight training.

We ask all of our students to be considerate of their fellow students and pilots when cancelling, arriving late to a scheduled lesson or, being late to return an aircraft.

Thank you.
