How Do I Become A Pilot?
A person may start to fly at almost any age. To become a licensed private pilot, you must be 16 years old to solo and 17 to get your license. You must pass a physical and written test before taking an oral and practical flight test with an FAA Examiner.
During your flight training experience, you will do cross county flight and night flying. You will also fly at tower controlled airports, receive dual instruction, and fly solo.
