This pricing assumes that the applicant holds the required 15 hours multi-engine Pilot-in-Command (PIC) time. Any time-building required to meet this requirement is not included in the price.

All of our pricing is based on historical averages for CTI Professional Flight Training students and is only an estimate. We believe in pricing based on these averages, rather than the FAA minimum hours, to give you an accurate picture of what your training will cost. As you shop around for flight schools, be sure to keep this difference in mind!

As with every school, actual costs may be higher or lower depending on each student’s unique abilities. Flight training is a highly individualized process and the actual number of hours required to reach a standard will vary significantly by candidate. Fuel Surcharges may apply and are subject to change without notice. There is a one-time enrollment fee of $500 for all CTI Professional Flight Training students.

* Group Classroom Instruction may be substituted with one on one instruction, which may cause the fee to vary.
