Do you think you might like to fly? Soar above the earth and get a new perspective?
Earning your private pilot license (PPL) will let you do that and more. It can also be the beginning of a great career as a professional pilot. With a private pilot license from a pilot school in Nashville, you will be able to rent a plane and fly locally or even cross country. You can take your family and friends on flights and show them what it looks like a few thousand feet above the ground.
Believe it or not, there is an extremely small percentage of people who have a pilot’s license. It is estimated 0.1% of the U.S. population, one-tenth of one percent, have a license to fly a plane. This is an elite club that you can join with the right training from Harmony Air.
If you have never been in a plane and have no experience, we have the perfect solution; our Discovery Flight.
See what it is like to fly a plane with you at the controls (with some assistance and guidance from a safe, competent, certified instructor, of course!). No experience necessary. Give Harmony Air a call (615-350-8550), make an appointment, and we will get you off the ground.
Once you try it and like it, we are ready to get your training started.
The pandemic has caused a severe shortage of everything, and U.S. Pilots are no exception. The U.S. airlines are in need of safe, competent pilots, and you could be that pilot.
Air travel demand has increased, and airlines are having a difficult time finding enough pilots to fly their planes. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates employment growth of 12.9% of pilots is expected between 2020 and 2030. Getting your private pilot license now will open up opportunities for you to fly, have fun and earn money as you increase your skills and certifications. You could fly for the airlines, law enforcement, private corporations, and the military.
Once you have your private pilot license (PPL), you can fly on your schedule (weather permitting), rent a plane, and practice flying. At almost any time, you can do what less than 0.1% of people in the U.S. (and not that much more in the world) can do. Fly!
Not only can you rent a plane and fly on your schedule, but you can take your friends and/or family along for the ride.
Show them what it is like 3000 feet in the air (or higher). Who knows, maybe they will get their private pilot license (PPL) too.
Some places take too long in a car. Traffic, construction, delays, time…why wait? Why waste your time when you can get there in roughly half the driving time, with very little traffic and no in-sky road construction?
Depending on the plane and your license (there are various types of private pilot licenses), you can even fly to remote locations that normally you would not be able to get to due to the location.
Oh, and don’t forget free pancake breakfasts! A lot of small, local airports have a “Fly-In” that you can now join as a private pilot with your private pilot license (PPL). Hop in your plane or a rental, check the flying conditions, and take a short trip to a free breakfast.
At this budding stage of your development, you cannot fly for money; but you can fly a plane for your business or business needs, like visiting a client that is too far away if you were to drive a car.
Planes are a great way to enhance your business and increase your revenue.
These are just 6 reasons for you to join Harmony Air now, like many before you who have achieved their private pilot license. Harmony Air has the experience, expertise and dedication to make your dreams a reality.
Don’t let time pass you by… Do something fun, educational, and potentially profitable.

A Private Pilot Certificate (Private Pilot License) is the first rating of many you can achieve on your path to leaving the ground and soaring among the clouds. Even with just your first rating, a Private Pilot License, you can bring your family, friends and others along for the ride; giving them the experience of flight.
With a Private Pilot Certificate you cannot fly for hire, but you can fly for hire with a commercial license/certificate.
There are many pilot schools in Nashville that can help you achieve your flying goals.
Whether you want to fly as a hobby, sport, fly to your own vacation spots or eventually work for the airlines, it all starts with a Private Pilot Certificate.
Harmony Air offers a Discovery Flight to give you a taste of flying. No experience or certification needed. You can visit www.harmonyair.com and sign-up online for your first flight into the sky. You will be able to ask questions, touch the controls and see what it is like to be a pilot.
Once you take your Harmony Air Discovery Flight and you find out how fun it is to fly, you are ready to make sure you are healthy enough to fly by yourself (when the time comes). You can fly as much as you want with another certified private pilot but he/she would be in control. If you want to fly by yourself and/or fly others with you, then you have to pass at least a 3rd Class Medical.
This is just a your standard doctor exam. They will ask you about your health, check your heart, lungs, blood pressure, sight and hearing. These specialized AME doctors report what they find to the FAA. It is recommended you talk with your regular health physician before you see the specialized AME medical doctor.
Now that you are medically fit, it is time to learn the rules of the road…or sky!
Ground School is learning about flying while staying on the ground. The best method is to purchase Sporty’s Private Pilot Learn To Fly course. If you purchase it through Harmony Air’s website you can get a much better discount: https://www.harmonyair.com/ground-school-training/
This course is interactive, has a lot of animations and is fun to watch and learn!
Talk with Harmony Air about the best method of learning your ground school fundamentals. It is usually best to watch the first section and then meet with your flight instructor to review.
A typical flight instruction session will begin with a ground briefing on what you are going to do, such as: basic aircraft control, takeoffs and landings, slow flight, aerodynamic stalls, emergency procedures, etc. Then you will review the related ground school fundamentals, flight requirements, procedures and weather. Once that is done, you and your instructor will examine the plane (which you should do before every flight) to make sure everything is in order.
When you two are satisfied the plane is ready for flight, you will enter the plane, perform your pre-flight briefing, talk with the tower/air traffic control (if necessary) and then taxi (roll/drive the plane on the ground) to the runway and take off when cleared.
There is a written test you must complete as you progress with your flight instruction. This written test can be done at anytime once your instructor has agreed you are ready to take the test. It will cover everything you are learning in ground school and in the air.
After you have performed at least 40 hours of flying time, passed your written exam and have been “signed off” that you are ready, you will now have to pass a practical/oral exam.
This practical test is with a specialized instructor (DPE) who will ask you similar questions to the ones on the written test and will fly with you to examine your abilities in the air.
When you have successfully completed the written exam, have at least 40 hours of flight time and passed your practical exam, you will have earned your Private Pilot Certificate! Congratulations!
It was a lot of hard work and a lot of information, but you are now on your way.
This isn’t the end. A good pilot, even if he/she only wants one rating (Private Pilot Certificate) should be always learning more, always striving to understand how to fly better and safer.
