Additional fees may apply to some students in some situations.

Embry-Riddle's flight program is designed to allow students to earn their ratings in three years (unlike many other schools). Embry-Riddle also lobbied Congress to allow its students to receive a restricted ATP with 500 less hours than the FAA mandated 1,500 hours, allowing our students to be years ahead of others in their career field. Students pay after each flight activity and costs vary by student ability, flight ratings being pursued, and other factors. Individual students can expect to pay $40,000-$60,000 throughout their time in the flight program to acquire required ratings. Flight training takes place in state of the art aircraft — Cessna 172s, Piper Arrow, and Diamond DA42s — with Garmin G1000 glass cockpits and ADS-B real time radar.

How much will it cost to fly?

Embry-Riddle recommends that students and parents budget from $15,000-$25,000 per year for flight fees for the three years they will be progressing through the Flight Program. Please take into consideration that prices will vary per student since no two students learn at the same rate.

 *Future costs and financial aid estimates are subject to change

Aviation Maintenance Science courses (courses with AMS prefix) are charged at a different rate than academic courses and students in the AMS program will incur additional costs for tools.
