and Cost of Training
Each student is different and learns at a different pace.
The duration of your training will vary with your goals and
time available. 3 to 6 months is an average time investment
for earning a private pilot certificate. This time may be
as short as 1 or 2 months for a committed full-time student.
"Guaranteed packages" don't leave room for individuals and
are therefore not offered at Oakland Flyers. We have compiled
estimates of training costs that will give you a realistic
idea of the financial commitment necessary for you to reach
your goals. These figures will vary from student to student.

his or her own methods of payment. This financial flexibility
allows students to start immediately and tailor their flying
to their finances. Club members can realize a 10% saving when
depositing US $500 or more in advance. For further member
convenience, we accept both Visa and Mastercard.
Oakland Flyers is located at the Oakland International Airport,
on the beautiful San Francisco Bay. The Oakland airport is
an FAA tower controlled airfield that boasts all the services
of a metropolitan air terminal. In addition to 24 hour fuel
and services, an FAA Flight Standards District Office, a Flight
Service Station (aviation weather provider) and Terminal Radar
Approach Control facility are all located on the field. Being
located in some of the busiest airspace in the U.S., it qualifies
our students to fly comfortably anywhere once certificated.
The San Francisco bay area and Northern California are beautiful
and provide an interesting and varied environment for flight
training. Minutes to the West is the stunning Pacific coastline,
a little over an hour to the East are the spectacular snow
capped Sierra Nevada mountains.
