Private Pilot Training, Flight Hours…?

The flight school I'd probably go to is but Part 141 and 61. Obviously, I would thus be able to only train for 35 total hours…but I'm well-aware that the vast majority of students fly significantly more than is required.

What is a typical amount of flight time a student pilot will complete before passing their Private Pilot License checkride?

oh…that's quite a type: “ is but Part 141…” should be “ is both Part 141…”

and then there were two. “type” should be “typo”

I really don't know why this is happening.

The first part of your question is unclear. I assume you meant you will go to a Part 141 school and not a Part 61 flight school.

First, just so you're clear on the matter, a Part 141 school can also teach under Part 61 rules, but a Part 61 school cannot teach under Part 141 rules. The only advantage to training under a Part 141 curriculum is if you intend to pursue a commercial pilot certificate and do all your training under Part 141. They both teach exactly the same things, but using slightly different procedures. A Part 61 curriculum is more flexible in what can be taught when..

Next, very, very few students are actually able to achieve the Private Pilot certificate in only 35 hours. The national average for both Part 141 and Part 61 students in the USA is 65 hours. If you hope to have a chance of doing it in under 40 hours, you should plan on flying nearly every day with the most experienced instructor. If you cannot fly at least 2-3 hours per week, or you do not have a highly experienced instructor, plan on it taking you at least 50 hours. If you can only fly an hour per week, and you are an average student, plan on it requiring 65 hours, or more.

The #1 reason people do not finish their PPL training is insufficient funds. If you plan on only doing it in 35-40 hours and you do not budget for at least 50 hours, your chances of not finishing are high, and in the long run you could end up doing a lot of your training over. Don't even think about starting flight training until you know you can afford to pay for at least 50 hours of flight time, plus the examiners fee and all the other expenses, including going to and from the airport.
