Starting with my private

Looking for some input. I already have my private. I got it in 1998. I’ve also got just under 200 hours…but I haven’t flown in 8 years. To say I’m rusty is an understatement.
What would you all suggest about training? Would you suggest doing the zero time training or the from private training?


Save your money and start from the Private. When I started with ATP it was almost 10 years since I had flown and I was fine. Start doing some reading and reviewing the PPL material, take a few lessons to knock off the rust and get a BFR and you’ll be ready to go. You’ll be amazed how quickly it comes back.


Thank you adam. I was thinking the same thing but didn’t want to be blindsided by the pace and be out of the loop. I will do just as you suggested and get a BFR and maybe even get the King Schools PPL packet to review.

I am a huge fan of the King’s videos and books. Make sure to check out eBay for the best prices.

Thanks Chris, I never thought about eBay! That’s a great idea!
