NOTE: The minimum flight and training time 
required by the Federal Aviation Administration 
has remained unchanged, while the knowledge, 
maneuvers, and skill level required has been 
updated on a regular basis to reflect today's
flying environment. Flying an aircraft requires 
a measurable level of skill. Each individual 
starts their flight training with different 
levels of knowledge, skills and habits. There-
fore it is difficult to estimate how long it 
will take each person to complete their train-
ing. However our experience has shown 
individuals successfully passing their check 
ride with as little as 40 hours and some with
as much as 100 hours. Your training with 
Spencer Aviation will be based on YOUR safety, 
YOUR needs(to reach required levels of skill) 
and helping you reach YOUR goals as a pilot. 
Flying should be fun and mentally stimulating. 
Your progress will best be made with this 
attitude. We look forward to helping you start 
Your New Adventure!!!
