Flight Instruction

All our instructors are highly skilled experienced pilots and they are contractors. This means that they set their own rate typically based on their experience and other factors.

Most of our contract instructors charge between $45 / hour and $60 / hour.

Accelerated Program

If you are going through our accelerated program, we purposely work the schedule around to make sure you get all the training you need in a short time span.

For the accelerated program, all rentals will be $5 / hour more to put you in scheduling priority.


Fuel Fee = If fuel is over $5.00 / gallon, you will pay the difference

Late Fee = (for reasons other than weather and maintenance and safety)

    • If you overlap another client, you will be billed $100 per hour over
    • If go over your scheduled time, without overlapping another client, you will be billed $25 an hour (on top of the rental fee).

Ground Hours = If the plane sits on the ground for more than an hour for the time it is dispatched, there is a charge of $7.50 per hour the plane sits on the ground. (Minus 1 hour total for preflight) This is not charged between 10 pm and 6 am.

Damage Fee = If any damage was caused due to negligence on your part, you are responsible to pay for it to be repaired.

Airport Fees = If you experience any fees at other airports, you are responsible for those bills even if they are mailed to us.

Late Cancel Fees = If you cancel a rental or lesson within 24 hours of your scheduled time for any reason other than maintenance and weather you may be subject to a $50 fee. If the reason was due to weather, and the weather was forecast to be poor, you may still be subject to the cancellation fee due to bad planning.

No Show Fees = If you do not show up for a scheduled flight you may be subject to a $100 fee (cancellations within 1 hour are considered a no show).

Passengers without Waivers = All passengers flying with you must fill out this waiver. Failing to do so will make you responsible to reimburse Pilot Rise of any legal fees or settlements regarding your passenger. You will also be liable for a $50 fee per passenger.
