Training usually takes anywhere from 3-10 days, depending on student skills.

Students with prior aeronautical knowledge and parachuting experience can learn in a matter of hours. However, just because a student gets into the air quickly does not crown them as a safe pilot. After the eventual first solo there will be many more hours of flying, helping the student achieve safe flying decisions and skills.

Training is typically conducted each afternoon to dark, 7 days/ week
