Expenses may differ considerably from student to student due to proficiency levels.

These costs reflect current flight instruction fees and aircraft rental rates and are subject to change without notice. Scholarship assistance is available to qualified students.

Federal Aviation Administration Designated Flight Examiners will administer all check rides. The examiner will collect a fee for ground and air evaluations and all certificate paperwork.

Students are required to obtain personal liability coverage to protect them from liability costs that may occur as a result of operating an aircraft. No student will be allowed to fly until proof of liability coverage is placed in the student’s university record.

Computer Procedural Training

Students may utilize the computer procedural training (CPT) device as required by the instructor. A lab fee will apply in accordance with the following scale:

AVM 120Primary Flight Theory and Training, Solo$100
AVM 121Primary Flight Theory and Training, PPL$100
VM 220Instrument Flight Theory and Training, PPL$100
AVM 221Instrument Flight Theory and Training, Advanced$100

Payment of the appropriate lab fee will entitle the flight student to use the CPTs during private pilot training at no additional charge. Payment of the appropriate lab fee will entitle the flight student to use the CPTs as required or recommended by the instructor at no additional charge. However, when using an instructor not employed by Lynn, a $30/hour fee will apply.

All expenses are paid directly to Lynn.


Students electing to obtain their flight certificates must place a $2,000 deposit on their account specifically for flight training. Students may use this deposit to cover flight-training costs. Any portion of the flight training deposit that is not used is fully refundable.


A new Flight Option student who already has a pilot’s certificate and rating(s) can apply for and receive credit for equivalent courses in the curriculum. However, prior to the award of any credit, the chief flight instructor will administer the standard Part 141 diagnostic evaluation to determine whether any review is necessary.
