you get to fly it on your first lesson!

it will take about 8-12 hours of training for you to be able to fly (actually land - flying is easy) it by yourself (student solo ) another 2-5 hours training for solo away from your airport with restriction on range and airports you can land at)

another 40 hours of combined training/solo practice to get your license - from there it is just how much more you want to learn, and refine - the more you fly/land, the better you get at it (assuming you have the basics correct)

it is very addicting! try to take two lessons a week for best skills development/retention. if you are in school, try to revolve your project/reading around the airplane, takes care of two things at once.
