How long does it take to learn to fly?

You will start doing most of the flying from your very first training flight. How you progress after that depends on how often you are able to fly – some people get to solo in a few months, others take a year or more. As a general rule you will need 50 – 100 flights to go solo, and you will need to go gliding at least once a month to make efficient progress. In a typical half-day training session you will usually complete 3-4 flights with an instructor.
