COMMERCIAL PILOT

GET PAID DOING WHAT YOU LOVE

Do you want to earn money being a pilot? A Commercial Pilot license is what you’ll need! That’s right. Commercial pilots aren’t just for major airlines. You legally can’t get paid for flights, even by your own friends or family, until you’re commercially rated. As a commercial pilot, you gain a greater depth of understanding in a variety of areas ranging from aerodynamics, aircraft performance, aircraft envelope control, and human factors. You also gain a much deeper understanding of the regulatory framework that governs us as pilots. By training for your Commercial Pilot’s license, you will bring your knowledge and skills up to professional pilot standards.

Flying might not be all smooth sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.
