PRIVATE PILOT CERTIFICATE
Our Private Pilot course will teach you the skills necessary to become a proficient and safe pilot. No prior experience required. A Private Pilot Certificate allows you to fly your family and friends for fun, but you'll need a Commercial Pilot Certificate to be paid to fly.
COMMERCIAL PILOT CERTIFICATE
Our Commercial Pilot course will dig deeper into the concepts covered in the Private Pilot course. Upon completion, you will be flying with a high level of precision and knowledge. This certificate allows you to be paid to fly. You'll need to have 150 hours total time to apply for a Commercial Pilot Certificate.
CERTIFIED FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR
Our flight instructor course will prepare you for the exciting challenges of instructing. Solidify your ground knowledge and piloting skills by teaching others to fly.
Our instrument rating course will give you the skills needed to fly when visibility is poor, referencing only your instrument gauges. An instrument rating is vital to possess and often required by employers if you intend to become a professional pilot. We recommend students obtain this rating after their Private Pilot Certificate.
CERTIFIED FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR - INSTRUMENT
Our CFI-Instrument course will give you the training and experience needed to become an Instrument Flight Instructor. This will expand the services you will be able to offer and you will quickly become an expert in instrument flying.
