Airplane Training Costs


One of the questions everyone asks is, “How much is flight school for airplane pilots?”

It depends on a few different things, like living expenses and whether you’re training for a Private Pilot Certificate or completing the entire Professional Pilot Program.

If you need to move across the world to complete the training, you’ll have to add this to the cost of your airplane pilot training. Most students are enrolled in our professional training program, beginning their careers as professional airplane pilots, but you can choose to get only your Private Pilot Certificate, if you are going to be flying solely for recreation.

A Private Pilot Certificate is less expensive because it’s only the first step in the training process and the complete Professional Pilot Program prepares you to fly for commercial airlines and private operators around the world.

At Hillsboro Aero Academy, we let you pay as you go for your training and don’t require a deposit from you before you start. You pay your balance at the completion of each lesson, instead of paying for them ahead of time.

If you’re an international student, you will have to prove you are capable of paying for training before we are allowed to issue your visa paperwork, but the funds do not have to be transferred before you start your pilot training.

We do offer financing options with competitive rates and flexible repayment options to help aspiring pilots.
