The SunFlight Custom Flight Training program is designed for qualified private pilots to continue with their flight training by working toward an instrument rating, multi-engine land rating or upset training. If these have been attained and the student wants to continue with the next rating, we can customize that training as well. Students learn in the same program as our University flight students.
Students must possess an FAA Private Pilot Certificate and FAA Medical prior to the start of this course in order to enroll in one of the customized training programs.
Tuition¹ includes supervised housing, on-campus meals, course fees, ground lab, flight materials and books.
*Final completion of certificated rating is not guaranteed. It is based on each students' abilities, and unforeseen circumstances, such as weather. In the event of a cancelled flight, we will do our absolute best to modify remaining flights and adjust the schedule to accommodate previously scheduled flight time.
Who: High School Juniors or Seniors
Where: Daytona Beach, FL
Tuition: Based on which rating you are seeking
Prereq: FAA Private Pilot Certificate
¹The tuition includes a deposit toward the flight fees. Total flight costs vary and are dependent upon the student’s abilities. Flight/instruction fees will be due at the completion of each lesson.

Summer Overnight Camps
Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.
Embry-Riddle's overnight summer programs at the Daytona Beach Campus and Prescott Campus introduce the technology of today to the aviators, engineers, and astronauts of tomorrow.
