Perhaps you are already a pilot looking for a new challenge, or someone completely new to flying and your wondering how to make the first step?
Firstly you need to decide what you want to fly, the FAA's rules for getting a pilot's license (certificate) differ depending on the type of aircraft you fly. You can choose among airplanes, gyroplanes, helicopters, gliders, balloons, or airships. If you are interested in flying ultralight vehicles, you don't need a pilot's license. You should also think about what type of flying you want to do. There are several different types of pilot's licenses, from student pilot all the way up to airline transport pilot.
