What does this mean for qualifications of being a pilot?

April 19, 2009

Ground Instruction:
40 hours: Cessna Pilot
Center Private Pilot
Program
12 hours : Preflight &
Postflight Ground
Instruction
40 Flight Hours including:

20 hours flight instruction with:
3 hours cross-country training
3 hours instrument training
3 hours night-flight practice
3 hours test prep

10 Hours Solo Flight:
5 hours cross-country flight with one cross-country flight of at least 150 nautical miles total distance

Successful completion of FAA Private Pilot Knowledge Exam and FAA Practical Exam

I don't get how many hours are actually needed. At $38 an hour, how much would it cost to get my private pilot's license? The website where this is found is:
http://www.lafayetteaviation.com/PrivateAreasInstruction.htm

In total flying time:
50 hours

Ground school:
40 Hrs

Pre-flight and post flight instruction:
12 hrs

Out of total flying time:
40 hrs Dual

10 hrs solo (5 must be X-country)

For the total cost of FLYING (not ground school ect.) at 38$ per hour: 1900$

*Its going to be slightly more because that's not calculating the ground school, flight test, supplies. So around 2500. Plus these are bare minimum requirements so don't expect it to be the same.
