And how much would that cost considering I have a PPL.

I have 245 hours. I am still working on my instrument rating. check out local flight schools or a Aviation college such as the one listed below http://www.midland.edu/aviation/ aviophage February 1, 2011 at 7:23 am It’s going to cost you–or somebody–an additional $20,000 to $25,000 at the least. If you can get really good rates you might trim a few thousand off it. Of course that will be spread out over 5-10 years. Alternatively, you can finish ROTC and go through the military as a flight officer. Then your friends and neighbors get to pay for it. Good luck! Comments are closed.
