A college education is one of the most important investments a person can make. TSTC Waco is committed to providing access to everyone who can benefit from such an education. The cost of attending TSTC Waco varies depending on a variety of factors, including a student's residency status, whether or not the student lives on campus, the program of study and any other services that the student may need. A variety of Financial Aid packages may be available to help pay or offset tuition costs.

Additional flight fees are listed below.

Flight Instructor & Pilot Training Flight Fees: For students enrolled in the full-time degree program for the FAA Private thru Certified Flight Instructor certificates and ratings (Part 141), the length of time it takes to complete is dependent on several factors. The student’s own ability; how motivated the student is and how much effort the student invests in homework and study assignments that may be given after classes or flights. It is very rare that an individual can complete a course within the FAA minimum flight time requirements. Your safety will not be compromised to guarantee a minimum number of hours towards your certification. Motivation is the most important factor a student can possess. This will allow you to gain the required knowledge base and apply consistency to the needed flight skills which will allow you to be a safe and employable asset to the aviation industry.

We expect you to complete one rating per semester. Anticipated rates are based on industry averages for each of the associated courses. Each course includes two hours for the FAA Checkride.
