How Do I Get a Pilots License - Get Your Pilot's Certificate near West Virginia

"How can I get a pilots license to fly in West Virginia?" Everyday we speak to aspiring pilots who want to know how can they get a pilots license. The question seems simple, but many people are too embarrassed to call a flight school and ask, "how do I earn a pilot's certificate?"  We say, don't be embarrassed, be bold and ask all the questions you can.  Do not hesitate to seek out information about becoming a pilot.  Our job is to coach, guide, and support aspiring pilots from West Virginia.  Our hope is that you will choose Upper Limit Aviation as your flight school. To be perfectly clear we only have flight schools located in Salt Lake City, UT, Cedar City, UT, and Murietta, CA. We hope that you consider relocating to one of our locations and start your journey toward becoming a certified pilot.  But regardless which school you choose, it would be an honor to help you along the way as you seek to obtain your pilot's license. 

Our recommendation is that you ask the experts in West Virginia (flight schools, flight instructors, online aviation sources, FAA, etc.). The more you know about earning a pilot's license the better off you will be. Start by calling our Student Service Team at 855-435-4338. We will gladly coach you through all your options.  As a matter of fact, for aspiring career-minded pilots we recommend that you find an expert and ask every question you can about becoming a commercial pilot. Earning a commercial pilots license can be expensive (for a commercial license there is a great deal of training), and flying can be dangerous.  Therefore, to find the right flight school with the best flight training is extremely important.

Before anyone can fly they need to become a student pilot.  The first step is to find a flight school near West Virginia.  In addition, you might start by also looking for a qualified flight instructor near West Virginia (not all flight instructors are associated with a flight school).  However, if you have your heart set on becoming a career pilot (commercial pilot) it is best to find a top airplane or helicopter flight school (you may need to relocate in order to enroll into one of the best schools).  The top flight schools are associated with colleges or universities and offer professional pilot degree programs. Upper Limit Aviation is an FAA approved flight school in partnership with Southern Utah University. Our students are career-minded pilots who desire to fly for a living.  If you are motivated to make your living flying airplanes or helicopters, call our Student Service Team and get started today! 

What does it mean to have a pilots license or certificate in West Virginia?

The good news is that after you've received your private pilot's license (certificate) from West Virginia you are able to take advanced flying lessons.  If your goal is to become a commercial pilot, your private pilot's certificate is only the beginning.  With your private pilots license you can then earn advanced certificates that will allow you to become a flight instructor or to become a commercial pilot flying for commercial airlines.  To become a commercial pilot you will need to earn advanced ratings (certificates) to your license. For example, these advanced ratings (certificates) will allow you to fly multi-engine airplanes, navigate in bad weather, and other advanced skills.

The best way to get started toward obtaining a pilots license is to find a good flight school near West Virginia.  One way to find a good pilot school is by visiting local general aviation airports, as they might have schools of their own. Or, continue to search online and searching for flight schools near West Virginia. Or, as we suggest, call Upper Limit Aviation.  We want to coach you through your options, and educate you on your best path forward.  If you are not interested in one of our flight school locations we can recommend a good flight school near West Virginia.  

It is our recommendation to those who are serious about becoming commercial pilots to look for the very best school possible.  If you are serious about flying as a career, be prepared to move.  There are only a few really good flight schools out there, and most likely you will need to relocate.  Good flight schools are like good medical schools.  If you want to be a doctor you might consider UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles).  Why?  Because the school you attend makes a difference once you get out in the real world and compete for jobs.  For more information about the best flight schools call 855-435-4338.
