Obtaining a Sport Pilot License in Houston is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to enjoy your favorite way to fly whether a Glider, Airplane, Hot Air Balloon, Powered Parachute and more. The average time it takes to get your license will depend on the type of aircraft and can last anywhere from 10 to 20 hours. A Houston Sport Pilot License enables new aviation enthusiasts to learn to fly (and gain access to aircraft) in half the time and for half the cost of previous alternative licenses.
