Cost per hour for a single engined trainer...ball park ...

Recommended Posts

Dear people, Could someone please give me a rough idea of how much it costs to rent a typical single engined trainer, such as the C 172.I do realize that this will vary greatly from one region to another, so I would also appreciate if you could tell me your geographical location as well.I am especially interested in prices from Europe and the USA.Thank you in advance.

Getting your PPL is much cheaper through orginizations (like CAP,Local Universities, ect.) In Salina, Kansas, for example, A C-172 costs about $80/hr through the airport, $65/hr through K-State, and $50/hr(+instructor) thorugh CAP.You might want to look around in you area to find the best deal

>Pray, what is CAP?CAP equals Civil Air Patrol.One of their jobs is to search for downed aircraft.You do not need to be a pilot to be a member, you can join and fly as an observer.John
