Our Commercial Rating Course consists of 20 hours of flight time to meet the FAA-required maneuvers, and 20 hours of oral training to pass both the oral and practical exam.
The course consists of 8 to 10 hours per day, divided between flight and classroom time. Your training is based on a building block of instruction in an organized manner. Each lesson is thoroughly explained so you fully understand each step. You are trained not only to pass the PTS requirements but also to be a proficient Commercial Licensed Pilot.
Program costs are $750.00 per day, plus rental aircraft, (if you do not own your own aircraft.). Each client has individual needs, thus, different number of days required to complete their training depending upon previous experience, training and avionics on board. Other costs involved are: (If instructor travels to your location) RT airfare for the instructor. (Our Instructors take care of their own meals.)
