Birds really have it great. No matter what the circumstance, they can simply drop everything and fly to another location. While flying may be natural for birds, the rest of us can only dream about the freedom that comes along with flying. Have you always viewed the idea of flying as a majestic and freeing experience? Perhaps you have always dreamed of piloting an aircraft but never really gave it a chance due to personal time and budget constraints. With the professional instruction from one of the best flight schools in Texas, you too can enjoy the freedom of flying alongside birds with a sport pilot license.

US Aviation is ranked among the best aviation academies in the nation and has enabled countless people to obtain their sport pilot license for more than a decade. Earning a sport pilot license from US Aviation is one of the quickest ways to make your dream of flying take off and become a reality.

What Is A Sport Pilot?

Becoming a certified sport pilot means you can man a light-sport aircraft simply for the excitement and pleasure it brings. You will be able to fly high above the rest of the population any time during daylight hours as long as the weather does not affect your visual sharpness. Another perk is the fact that you can share your flying experience with one other passenger.

While a sport pilot license comes with a handful of perks, it also comes with more restrictions than upper-level pilot licenses. With this type of pilot license, you may only operate an aircraft identified as a light-sport aircraft while remaining below 10 thousand feet. Additionally, you may only fly during fair weather conditions and never during nighttime hours. A sport pilot license takes less time to attain than other pilot licenses, however, and the flight time logged while earning this license may be used toward earning a private pilot license at a later date, if desired.

Getting Your Sport Pilot License

The prerequisites for earning your sport pilot license are few. To begin sport pilot training at our flight school, you must:

  • Have a valid driver’s license.
  • Be able to speak, read, write and comprehend English.
  • Have at least prepared for the FAA Written Exam, but we prefer you take and pass it prior to enrollment.
