As the weekend approaches, I have decided that I’ll begin doing a little series documenting my flight training experience.
Of course before we can begin with training, I need to start preparing. I’ll need a few materials, such as:
- A Flight School (well duh)
- Foreflight (In the works)
So the headset I bought was a ‘KORE AVIATION P1 Series PNR Pilot Aviation Headset’ which I found on Amazon for a little under $100.
Here’s a quick photo credit to Amazon:
Next, I need a flight school. Now I live in los Angeles, so their were easily over 100 options. I settled with a flight school located at KVNY airport, it’s called “Encore Flight Academy” They have the largest fleet out of any flight school in Van Nuys including:
- Cirrus SR22’s
- Cessna 162 Sky Catcher’s
- Diamond DA-22
- Piper PA28-161
Of these planes, I’ll mostly be flying in the Piper aircraft, but will also log between 5-10 hours in the other aircraft.
Next, I needed Foreflight, at this time I’m trying to see which plan will work, so if anyone knows a good solid plan under $125 please let me know. Either way, I’m excited for my flight training this weekend! Please let me know if you have had any experiences with flight school or some sort of discovery flight.
Here are some photos from a Discovery Flight I had with the school about a month or two ago:
