The Commercial Pilot Certificate is sought after by those who want to fly for pay as well as those who are looking to fine tune their flying skills for personal travel. The route to get to the Commercial Pilot Certificate includes first earning your Private Pilot’s Certificate and for most, the Instrument Rating. You need 250 flight hours among other FAA specified requirements in order to be eligible for the Commercial Certificate under Part 61 regulations.
Traditionally a career minded pilot will train for the Commercial Certificate in a single engine aircraft before earning their Flight Instructor Rating, which is many cases, is the ideal first job for a working pilot. The training consists of advanced maximum performance flight maneuvers that will teach you mastery of aircraft control. You will also fine tune your navigation and precision landing skills through a series of cross county flights and landing drills.
Under the FAA’s new rules, we can perform all of your training in our Diamond DA40 aircraft. For those of you who still need that all important 10 hours of time complex aircraft (defined as an aircraft with retractable landing gear, flaps, and a controllable pitch propeller) required for the Commercial Certificate, Take Flight Aviation has an ideal complex single to meet the need!
