Commercial Rating

This course is intended for the initial commercial pilot certification in a single engine airplane. If you are building hours in other types of aircraft, please call to verify your hours will be credited for the Federal Aviation Administration check ride. The 5-Day Commercial Course will teach you to act safely as a commercial pilot, and it is a required stepping stone to your future aviation career. This course is designed to get you through the commercial certificate quickly, while still gaining the advanced experience necessary to be a safe and proficient pilot. We will work with you during the day, but you must work each night reviewing ground and flight items introduced that day, as well as previously taught subjects. Personal preparation and studying will allow you to pass the check ride with ease.
