Learn to Fly Discovery Center’s "Ask an Instructor"
booth is ably manned by volunteers from the National Association of
Flight Instructors (NAFI) and private pilots. Equipped with
computers, knowledge, and a copy of the federal aviation
regulations, they can answer most any question on becoming a sport
or private pilot. Here are a couple of frequently asked question
they’ve been hearing:
are the requirements to transition to a sport pilot certificate from
a private pilot certificate?
a private pilot, you already have met the necessary skills to become
a sport pilot. Take dual training to get checked out in a
light-sport aircraft, have your logbook endorsed, and you are good
for the private pilot certificate looks a lot harder than going for
the sport pilot. What is the difference?
sport pilot certificate has a few more restrictions, such as only
being able to carry one passenger, but both the private and sport
certificates cover the same materials as to how to fly airplanes.
If you have questions
about how to become a sport pilot or private pilot, visit the Learn
to Fly Discovery Center just west of AeroShell Square at the corner
of Knapp Street Road.
