How do I pay for Training at Sky Wings?

We have a pay as you go model. Each time you fly you would pay for that session. Ground school fees are paid on the first day of classes and cover the listed subjects on the schedule. Books are also available for purchase for the specific course that you are taking.

Training times and individual ground briefing may vary for everyone. For this reason, it is not possible to forecast an exact cost for the course. Flight training and ground school are tax deductible, provided that the individual is contemplating a career in aviation. Price is subject to change without notice.
