Commercial Pilot

Every commercial pilot remembers their first dollar. It’s a surreal experience to transition from paying to fly to being paid to fly. A commercial certificate opens up wide-ranging opportunities in aviation, from operating scenic tours, conducting aerial surveys, working for an air carrier, or further training pursuing a flight instructor certificate.

The keyword in commercial flying is mastery. Most of the knowledge and maneuvers in commercial flying are learned while training to become a Private Pilot. The focus now is on refining these skills to a level appropriate for a commercial pilot. This means mastering your airplane through all phases of flight and high command of the knowledge required of a commercial pilot. 

Training Philosophy

As a soon-to-be pilot for hire, it’s estimable to make the pursuit of mastery a bedrock of your career. A perk of many flying jobs is the general lack of day-to-day oversight from superiors. Systemic safety is your responsibility. Our course gets you started by laying out the foundations of what it means to be a commercial pilot including the often-confusing discussion of the specific privileges and limitations of a commercial certificate. Along the way, we’ll polish-up for the written test and the oral exam. Most importantly, you’ll have a stable foundation as you embark on your journey as a commercial pilot.
