Learning to fly:

Every one asks “how much and how long”
That is a very open question.
Answer: it depends completely on the person. After the acquisition of the aircraft, the instructor rate is $75 first lesson hour and $60 additional hrs per lesson. Less then any other type of lessons. It takes 60 to 100 hrs. It may take more for some people, but most of my students run around 65 hrs.
One must commit to at least two to three lessons a week. I will work with your schedule,

Learning to fly can be one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have.

It takes a bit of time and patience (about seven months for an ambitious person) and about $10,000 in small increments using Martin Aviation's approach Almost anyone can learn if they set their mind to it. Education level is not an issue. There is no need for fast reflexes (there are pilots in their 80s and 90s). No need to be a mathematician. Lesions can start at any age, solo at 16 and license at 17. One must pass a simple flight physical by an FAA designated Dr. This is called the "Third Class" and also serves as a student pilots license. Note: Eyesight is checked with glasses. No urine test, just basic blood pressure.
Note to people over 55. The 150/2 is a very slow plane in terms of required reaction time. Mature people find it a joy to fly. (the hardest thing is getting in and out).

Book work first!!!!!

Why - The airplane is the worst class room! Think of when you were 17 and wanted to learn to drive a car. You already had lots of experience. You were in cars almost from day two of your life. Everything was already familiar from the controls, to the rules of the road, to getting from one place to another, to not being apprehensive (no fear).
