Minimum Flight Requirements

The following links will send you to a page that will show the FAA requirements for each certificate. They are FAA minimums and not necessarily the actual flight time.
For example: The national average for those presenting themselves as ready for the Private check ride is between 50-60 hours of flight time.

An important note: The length of time required to obtain a certificate depends on a student’s dedication, study, skill level, and the frequency of lessons.
