Flight Training Books and Supplies
If you’ve signed up to begin flight lessons at my new flight school called Pilot Flight Training Courses out of Lake in the Hills Airport in Northern Illinois, these are the books and supplies you will need to begin training. There are a couple of smaller items like Charts and Chart supplements that are not included in the list because they have expiration dates, are not expensive and can be purchased later.
Below are most of the books and supplies you will need to begin. Some of the items must be purchased before training begins and some can wait a bit longer. By purchasing the items below, which is required material for training anyway, we will get a commission for referring you, just as any place you purchase from gets a commission. This does not affect your cost! Everything is here to make it easy for you to find.

Materials Below Are Needed About 1/2 Way Through Training
These items are used for the cross country flight planning phase of your training. If you take a ground school course which most people do, then these may be required for the class. Some people prefer to do home study and do it on their own which is fine if you’re disciplined enough.

The Following Items Can Be Purchased Any Time
The items below include a flight bag to carry all your pilot supplies and an aviation headset. There are many headsets out there to choose from. Prices vary between a couple of hundred dollars to over a thousand dollars. A headset really is needed to be able to hear things but if you don’t have one, then we will rent you one while you are training. Eventually you should get one. I have attached 2 headsets below; one is around $300 and the other is around $600. They are both good headsets. If you want to spend the big bucks on a Lightspeed ZULU then they have those too. I have also attached a flight bag. I personally use this kind and love it. It is light weight, carries a lot and is very small.

Enjoy Your Training!
It is great that you have decided to learn to fly! I know you will love it as much as I do. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t hesitate because it is one of the best, most exciting things I have ever done!
