Plotting your course on becoming a pilot

Designed to mimic a true aeronautical chart, ASA’s Plotting Your Course fold-out brochure is loaded with information about how to get a pilot’s license. While this free “chart” should not be used for navigation, it should be used to inspire and inform future pilots that their dreams are within reach, ASA officials note.

ASAThe free resource contains general information about the first steps to pilot certification, eligibility requirements, how to find and choose the right flight school, how long it takes to get a license, how much it costs, and how to get started.

Additionally, readers will be introduced to basic ground school topics, including airplane terminology, chart reading, aircraft systems, fundamentals of flight, airspace and weather, aerodynamics, runway markings and traffic patterns.

A table containing contact info and social media links, as well as web addresses to ASA training products and aviation industry groups and organizations, is provided for quick reference.
