FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours flying time, including 10 hours solo flying time. The amount of time it would take for you to get your PPL will largely depend on you. Your time, budget, and level of aspiration are the main determinants.
Having a PPL allows the pilot to fly a small aircraft solo and with passengers in visual flight conditions. PPL does not allow for flying passengers or cargo.
How much will it cost me to obtain a Private Pilot License? Main requirements are:

• Minimum of 40 hours in flight time in a Cessna 172.
• Purchase of study materials and supplies.
• Third Class Medical Exam.
• FAA Written Private Pilot Knowledge Test.
• FAA Practical Private Pilot Check Ride.

At a minimum, you should expect to invest $10,000 to $11,000. Many students do need however, more practice and spend between $10,000 and $15,000 for their flight training.
