Frequently Asked Questions
Is Vermont Flight Academy operating now?
Yes, VFA is currently flying almost every day.
How much does it cost to learn fly?
The cost of flight training is highly variable and dependent on a number of factors. As VFA is an FAR 141 Flight School, the minimum flight training time for a Private Pilot license is reduced to 35 hours. We currently offer dual flight training in Cessna 172s for $180-190/hour (that is the total cost including instructor and fuel fees).
What is the difference between FAR 141 and 61 training?
VFA currently provides flight training under both sets of FAA regulations. The advantages of FAR 141 training include:
Combined with our staff of highly experienced pilots, our 141 training is an excellent way to start your aviation career. We are also happy to instruct on an FAR 61 basis as dictated by the needs of our students. Regardless of the training curriculum, we will train to the same high standards with your benefit in mind.
