Is this a shit post?For getting private pilots license, does the academy basically cover everything necessary for ground school? That way you can go straight to finding an instructor and start flying. Also, if anyone here thinks if going for a commercial license would also be worth it
do you want to fly commercially?
It does cover some of the basics of how to read VFR Sectional charts, basic aircraft systems, runway/taxiway operations, airport lighting and markings, aviation weather and forecasts, and some pilots environment information. However, there is still a lot to learn to be a pilot. You would need to learn systems more in-depth for your individual aircraft (electrical, Navigation, Fuel etc.) aerodynamic theory, CTAF operations, requirements for entering controlled and uncontrolled airspace, medical requirements, and aircraft documents Just to name a few. If you want to fly professionally get the commercial license. If you don’t, a private license and an instrument rating is all I recommend, but that’s up to you ultimately.
Gotcha, thanks for the information. The reason I asked for commercial, is because I read you needed that license to fly up skydivers. Thought it’d be fun to do on the side
