Pilot Training Cost

Pilot Career Package (PPL-CFI)

For pilot training CA and the fastest route to your commercial license, choose Ascent Aviation Academy. Our pilot instruction and training career package is designed for someone who would like to make a career in aviation. The airlines are a great place to be right now. With a global pilot shortage and countless opportunity, there has never been a better time to become a career pilot. Ascent Aviation Academy will never make you purchase a package. Each student is different and takes a different amount of time to obtain all of their licenses. This package is designed based off of years of experience teaching out of Van Nuys airport. It is an average as far as price and hours needed to obtain all of these ratings. Our most popular way to pay is through block rates where the student pays for only 10-20 hours of airplane rental and flight instruction at a time.

Los Angeles’ #1 Path To The Airlines

Ascent Aviation Academy of Los Angeles, California is well known as the West Coast’s top-rated flight school for comprehensive pilot training and career courses. Paying by block rate is the golden standard in most cases and ensures you’re never locked into paying for more instruction than you need. You may purchase our commercial pilot training package as a whole and we can even offer in house financing with 0% interest but we do encourage block rate style payments.
pilot training CA
I’ve officially made it through the program at California's Ascent Aviation for my pilot training. I am now working as a CFI and building time toward the airlines. I’m very happy with my decision to go with Ascent. They never once treated me like a dollar sign and everyone here has created great mentorship along the way. I’ve met others that have gone to the airlines after working here and can’t wait to get to my 1500 hours. The best thing about working here is the atmosphere and the fact that they’re the highest paying for CFI's in SoCal. I know when i get 1500 hours they'll set up my first airline interview. This place feels like a second home
