Private Pilots comprise the largest group of pilots and are among the most active fliers. In 2003, there were 241,045 Private Pilots. To become a Private Pilot, one must be at least 17 years old and have a minimum of 35 hours of flight time, including 20 hours of instruction and 10 hours of solo, and have a FAA medial.

A Private Pilot—with appropriate training, ratings, and endorsements (e.g., float-plane, taildragger, multiengine, helicopter, jet, retractable gear, pressurized, high-performance, complex, etc.)—may carry passengers in any aircraft, day or night, good or bad weather (see Instrument Rating below). Private Pilots may not fly for compensation or hire (no paying passengers or revenue services) but may share equally with their passengers the direct operating expenses of a flight—specifically fuel, oil, airport parking and landing fees, and aircraft rental charges.
