Career Pilot


If you want to get paid to fly, this is your route. Commercial pilots must be at least 18 years old, or older. They must also have a minimum of 190 hours of flight time. 

They must hold an IFR rating, or be restricted to only daylight operations, under visual flight rules (VFR), and operating within 50 miles from the originating airport. They may, however, fly for hire. 

Medically, commercial pilots must have a Class II medical, which requires renewal every 12 months.

Flight Instructor Rating Course 

Flight instructors are authorized to provide flight instruction to pilots and pilots requiring additional certificates/ratings.

Flight Instructors also complete flight review for license re validation and recommend flight tests for students.

Instrument Flight & Ground Course 

An instrument rating allows you to fly when visibility is poor and clouds are low.

The combined flight and ground training course has been designed to provide the student with the maximum academic and flight training prior to the introduction of new maneuvers and procedures.

Once students are proficient and have passed all the stages, they must pass an FAA written examination and check ride.

Certificated Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII) Add-on Course

CFII or Certified Flight Instructor Instrument allows one to teach instrument rating applicants;

both on Aeronautical knowledge and Flight Training.

If you're a Professional Pilot, this is the best way to build your instrument skills. 

Complex Endorsement

Requirements: Private Pilot's License 

To obtain your Retractable Gear Endorsement most students average between 3-5 hours with a CFI in our 172XP.

Federal aviation regulations require pilots to have a complex airplane endorsement in order to act as pilot-in-command (PIC) of a complex airplane. This one-time logbook endorsement can be earned through ground and flight training.

The FAA does not require a special check-ride or knowledge test to earn the endorsement.
