How much does it cost to become a pilot?
That answer will vary widely depending on the country, as well as your flying goals. If your curious about an estimate of costs in Canada (in CAD), Langley Flying School has an excellent breakdown here.
For a quick answer, to get your basic private pilot’s license in Canada, which grants you the privilege of daytime operation of a single engine aircraft and carry passengers, it will cost around $13,000. If you fly almost every day, and study hard, you can get this cost down. If you don’t have the time/funds to fly often and study consistently, this will be much higher.
