Why Train to Become a Pilot?

  • Fun! Learning to fly can be a fun hobby. Once you’ve accomplished your training goals and earned your FAA Certifications and Ratings*, you can share the thrill of flying with your friends and family.
  • Avoid airport security. When you learn to fly general aviation aircraft, you’ll get used to the ease with which you walk out to your airplane and take to the skies! Say goodbye to waiting in security lines!
  • Career path. Training to be a commercial pilot can be extremely exciting.
  • Business travel. Save time by flying to those business meetings that are too far away to drive, and a hassle to get to when you have to wait in security lines when flying commercial.
  • Leisure travel. Whether you take the family on vacation or go on a weekend trip with some friends, being your own pilot can allow you to travel to new places with ease.
  • It’s a challenge! Very few aspiring aviators accomplish the goal of becoming a commercial pilot. McAir is here to support you in your pilot training journey. 

Start with Ground School

Learning to fly isn’t all adrenaline and thrills. Comprehensive instruction on the ground is critical while training to become a pilot, as this is where you’ll develop your knowledge of aircraft operations and safety that you will later apply on the ground and in the air.

At McAir, there is no formal ground school, as many people think. All ground school is self-study at your own pace using our Cessna Computer Based Instruction (CBI) Kit. Developed by The Cessna Aircraft Company and King Schools, our CBI kit walks you interactively through each flight-learning session. The program allows you to interact through multi-media labs to gain the necessary knowledge for each rating. You’ll learn not only to pass your exam, but also how to be a knowledgeable, competent pilot. Study at home, in the office, or even while traveling. You’ll watch presentations by aviation educators, see dramatic, enlightening in-flight footage, take interactive quizzes, learn interesting trivia, and prepare for upcoming lessons before you ever climb into the airplane.

In essence, you’ll see it and do it before ever leaving the ground. This, in turn, allows for the most efficient training each flight. The system allows you to save precious time and money in the air by knowing the material before flying.
