PRIVATE PILOT CERTIFICATE
The First Step
A Private Pilot Certificate allows anyone to operate an aircraft with passengers and baggage. Whether you want to fly for leisure or make a career out of flying, this certificate is your first step. Ask one of our instructors about the requirements to get a Private Pilot Certificate.
The Next Step
An Instrument Rating allows a pilot to fly in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) or under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). This greatly opens up the weather conditions you can fly in. This rating will not only increase your aviation resume, but it will make you a significantly safer pilot.
COMMERCIAL PILOT CERTIFICATE
Begin Your Career
A commercial pilot may be compensated for flying. Training for this certificate focuses on a better understanding of aircraft systems and a higher standard of airmanship.
FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR RATINGS (CFI/CFII)
Advance Your Career
A Flight Instructor Rating allows you to share your piloting skills and passion with someone else. Our Flight Instructor program is focused on creating a safe and professional teacher of flight. Are you ready to get paid to share your love of aviation?
