FAA Aviation Training Courses

We offer pilot training under both FAR Part 61 and FAR Part 141.

What does that mean?

This means we have two different ways to approach your training. Both FAR Part 61 and Part 141 training demand the same minimum standards for you to get your pilot certificate, but FAR Part 141 is more methodical and refined.

Flight instructors approved by the FAA can train you under FAR Part 61 anywhere—whether they’re attached to a flight school or not—and they can follow their own method.

FAR Part 141 training is given through approved flight schools, like Hillsboro Aero Academy, who have had our course curriculums reviewed and approved by the FAA. This means we’ve perfected our courses over time, found the best path for your training and we stick to it.


The amount you need to spend to get an airplane pilot’s license will always vary based on various factors like the license type and school, but it generally is $5000 to $10000.

The duration of courses varies based on curriculum and specializations, but it typically ranges from three to six months and the speed of learning. Patience is vital to better understanding.

While your course is for six months to a year, it can take up to two to four years to be a professional in the field and gain a diverse learning experience.

Even though a degree is mandatory in most cases, more prominent airlines prefer candidates with a college degree in aviation or any related field for better opportunities.
