The Sling pilot academy is an accelerated pilot training program that takes you from 0 hours to commercial pilot in only 9 months. This program is not like what you have at a regular flight school where you pay as you go. Think of this as going to a 4 year college. Except your training will only take 9 months to finish. As an enrolled student, you will attend ground school and fly from Monday to Friday. And you’re not in time competition with tons of other pilots to rent an airplane because there are enough airplanes on the ramp to fly including the set of Tecnam P2006 Twin engine aircraft.
Sling Pilot Academy currently have a fleet of Sling 2 modern aircraft. In my years of flying and flight training, I don’t know of any other schools or program that offer the same flexibility.
The full program cost about $63,000. And below is everything that will be covered:
Private Pilot (PPL)
Instrument Rating (IR)
Commercial Single (CPLSE)
Commercial Multi Engine (CPLME)
Certified Flight Instructor Single Engine (CFISE)
Certified Flight Instructor Multi Engine (MEI)
Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII)
FAA Knowledge Tests: PAR, IRA, CAX, FIA, FII, FOI
You will get 280 hours total with the program and commercial requires a minimum of 250 hours.
The hours are:
*50 hours on an FAA approved simulator.
To get ATP you will need 1500 hours so this will come later after you have 1500 hours and move on to a part 121 airline (regional). You will get your ATP when you move on to a regional – the regional covers the cost of this.
