Commercial Pilot Certificate
- Get paid to fly!
A Commercial Pilot Certificate is required for anyone
that wants a career as a pilot - this certificate will allow you
to get paid to fly! While working towards this goal, we will be
honing your skills as a pilot until you master a number of advanced
maneuvers and can handle more complex aircraft.
Assuming your goal is to fly for an airline some
day, we will be incorporating many important procedures the airlines
use in your training, which will help foster an easy transition
to a career as a professional pilot. In addition to this, we use
this portion of your training to help prepare you for your first
job as a pilot - a Certified Flight Instructor.
It is very difficult to estimate the cost of adding your Commercial
Pilot Certificate to the above courses, because it will depend greatly
on your previous experience. Therefore, we have based our estimate
on the minimum flight time required by the FAA in order to be a commercial
pilot - 250 flight hours. All the flight time you needed to get your
Private Pilot Certificate and your Instrument Rating count towards
the required 250 hours, and are therefore included in this estimate.
The total represents the estimated cost to you if you were to enter
our program with ZERO experience.
For advanced training (anything after your private pilot certificate),
we charge an extra $10/hr for both the aircraft and instructor over
our posted rates for primary instruction.
Note: The hours of flight/ground instruction can be greatly reduced
based on a person's study habits. In addition to this, if you already
have a Private Pilot Certificate, Instrument Rating, and the 250 hours
of minimum flight time, the cost of your Commercial Pilot Certificate
will be considerably less. Please call us
we will be happy to
discuss your individual situation.
