Learning to Fly Where the Wright Brothers Flew

The Outer Banks is the birthplace of aviation and has many opportunities for learning to fly on your own. – by Jenny Hawk


With beautiful scenery and challenging wind conditions flight training on the Outer Banks is rewarding. Students will land at the Wright Brothers Monument on their first flight at the First Flight Airport (KFFA) which is only a 5 minute flight from the Dare County Regional Airport.

Average students who can stay consistent and fly 2-3 times per week can expect to have private pilot their license in 45-60 hours. They can expect to solo the aircraft anywhere between 15-25 hours; some students have even soloed with less than 10 hours!

In OBX Airplanes‘ training aircraft, a student can expect to pay $95/hr for the rental of the aircraft and $35/hr for the instructor’s time coming to a total of $130/hr—a bargain in aviation flight training. The average time to get a license is about 3 months but it can be done in a month with the right instructor and motivation from the student.

Students of OBX Airplanes will be fortunate to have an instructor who is encouraging and with a variety of aviation experience. OBX airplanes primary instructor is a banner tow pilot, charter pilot, air tour pilot, instrument instructor and a member of the FAA safety team and who loves to fly!
