 General Information

Become A Pilot

Region Flyers is a Part 141 flight school.  This means the FAA has accredited us and allows you to get your ratings faster and more cost effectively.

Pilot Certification is possible with the minimum flight time requirements specified in the FAA Regulations.  These parameters can be met for exceptional students, however this is not the average.  

Please be wary of another flight school that promises you some minimal amount of training time based upon minimum FAA requirements.  This is not realistic for the average person, and it is designed as a ploy to attract your business.  

The following costs herein reflect the hours specified by our FAA Part 141 Syllabus. The costs can be expected for an above average student with strictly disciplined study habits who learns new skills quickly, and who has a high aptitude and natural talent for flying.  For a custom training quote, please contact us.

Region Flyers offers flight training programs at our Lansing, IL location for the following certificates and ratings:
