Back Cover


Information for Pilots

The new book from CFI/CTT Timothy O'Connor aims to not only bring more candidates into aviation but more importantly to give these students the knowledge and tools they need to beat the odds and successfully become a certified pilot. Entering a student pilot program can seem daunting, and without a good guide many people never get past an introductory ride. You Can Afford To Be A Pilot gives students the knowledge and power to break down the most common barriers to completing a pilot certificate including expense, poor instructors, lack of procedural support and more. 

Unlike any other book or publication, You Can Afford to be a Pilot takes the reader on a complete tour of the pilot training and certification process from the perspectives of the instructor, examiner and student from the point of initial interest through becoming a fully certified pilot.
This new book also aims to open the door to flight for those who thought they could not afford to fly. The fact is flying can be done by people of middle-class means and this book is a convincing guide to make the dream of flight attainable.
