Now you can do your Hour Building in NEW, glass-cockpit equipped Cessna Skycatchers or late-model, technically advanced Cessna 172SPs!

Need more hours? Do your hour building in sunny Florida!

Why hour building? One of the frustrations faced by new pilots is being able to attain the prerequisite experience to qualify for advanced pilot ratings or to qualify a frozen ATPL. We are here to make it both easy and affordable for your hour building and have fun doing it!

This sheet is intended for informational purposes only and reflects estimated costs of all aspects of this training course. The hour requirements and associated costs are based on the average training time to complete the course and pass the FAA Practical Test. Your actual time to completion will vary. All prices subject to change without notice. Aircraft hourly rental rates quoted above include fuel and are based on a pre-paid block purchase of 20 hours or more. Any additional flight hours or instruction will generate additional costs.

A word about our pricing and rates: SunState Aviation's commitment to you, our students and customers is to provide the highest quality training and aircraft rental possible, combined with the very best possible customer service at the very best prices and hourly rates possible. We do not add fuel surcharges or any other hidden charges to our rental rates (a 7% local sales tax is added to non-instructional aircraft rentals), nor do we falsely inflate our rental rates in order to offer "special cut-rate deals." Our rates are competitive and our block discounts are already as low as we can possibly go. Please do not ask us to depart from our published rates. The prices and rates published on this web-site are the effective rates at the time that you viewed them and are subject to change. Thank you for your understanding.
