So at the end of the training, I paid 100.00 for his time and then 100.00 for the plane (I bough 10 blocks). So it was 200.00 for that session. 200.00 X 40 hours is $8,000.00. But I suppose since that was the first time meeting him, we won’t sit down like that every session.
I my case, I think there were only few times when I went over $150 and into $200s for a single lesson and it was my dual cross-country and similar flights - your typical lesson , which is basically staying in the pattern and doing touch-and-goes, should be around $150 or so.
