The FAA requires 40 hours but most people (including myself) take more instruction depending on the type of aircraft one wishes to pilot. The average is between 60 and 65 hours.

How long does it take to get a pilots license?

Well, that decision is really up to you. For your private pilots license, you are required 40 hours of flight time (this can be done within a week, if you have the time and the funds). You must be 16 to solo and 17 to take your practical flight test. You are required to take a written test before your flight test and you are required to get a flight medical before you solo. The flight medical will be your student pilot license. There are schools that will take you all the way to your Air Transport Pilot License in 180 days and $70,000.

How old do you have to be to get a pilots license or a pilot permit?

The age is not a legal requirement for a pilot license; however you need to show enough maturity to be given the commands of an airplane. Your flight instructor will not give you authorization for a solo flight until he thinks you are a safe and responsible pilot. I've heard of a boy who got his pilot's license at 12; this is possible, but exceptional. __________________________________________________________________________________ In the United States, you have to be: 16 to get your Student Pilots Licenses (meaning you can solo) 17 to get your Private License You can fly with an Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) at any age. (I have my Private License with Instrument Rating)
