AFIT’s Accelerated Commercial Pilot Program Adds Finesse, Control And The Ability To Get Paid | By Marc C. Lee
What It’s Like

Earning the Commercial rating is in some ways more difficult than the instrument, but, in other ways, more fun. First, it’s all VFR so you can set aside the instrument complexities for 20 hours or so. The idea is total mastery of your aircraft. What you’re doing is refining your seat-of-the-pants stick-and-rudder skills. You’re learning to fly the airplane with more positive control so you don’t become just a “systems operator” that can’t handle a visual approach (as we saw with the Asiana crash last year).

Takes On AFIT's 10-Day Instrument Rating Program
Standing here, staring at the temporary airman’s certificate that tells me I passed my Instrument Rating check ride, it’s hard to believe that 10 days ago I was a pure stick-and-rudder pilot with very little IFR knowledge. The AFIT program was intense, but rewarding beyond measure. The complexities of IFR flying that seemed daunting on day 1 became clearer and easier to fly as the days went on, and the whole process made more sense each day. Spending all my training hours in the actual airplane instead of some simulator/airplane mix was unbeatable.

To me, the key to AFIT’s program is the individual instructor. Mine was John T. and I can’t envision a more ideal match. Clearly, he has a love for aviation and for teaching, as well as a deep reservoir of experience to draw from. He tuned in on how to teach ME, and it’s only because of John’s passion and experience that I learned as quickly as I did.

Thank you John, and kudos to AFIT ’s accelerated program for transforming me into a safer, more precise, instrument-rated pilot.
