Sport Pilot Training
Learning to be a pilot is now more affordable, accessible and fun!
The NEW FLYERS ASSOCIATION is the only flight school in Columbus to offer Sport Pilot training in brand new modern aircraft at The Ohio State University’s airport.
The FAA created the Sport Pilot license, which is the most significant change in FAA regulations in 50 years; it allows easier and lower-cost access for those wishing to participate in the joy of flight.
You can become a Sport Pilot with as little as 20 hours of flight instruction. You can fly a one or two seat aircraft capable of speeds up to 138 mph. And in most cases, you can pass the medical requirements just by showing your driver's license. That's not all...
Now You Can:
Whether you're completely new to aviation or have flown aircraft before, Sport Pilot is the new way to fly that is easier, more affordable, safe, and loads of FUN!
The Sport Pilot License is a new type of pilot certificate designed to get you safely and easily trained for recreational flying in Light Sport Aircraft. By restricting recreational flying for sport pilots to daytime, good weather, and in un-congested airspace, much of the complexities of learning to fly have been removed. As a result, the time and cost commitment to learn to fly are now half what they previously were. New pilots can be safely trained in a matter of weeks, versus months. Additionally, all hours logged sport flying can be applied toward higher pilot ratings, like the Private Pilot License. As a result, the new SPL is perfectly suited for beginner pilots, even as they aspire to eventually fly larger, more complex, transportation aircraft.
