A Commercial Pilot certificate allows you to get paid to fly. It is the prerequisite to becoming a flight instructor, a charter pilot, or an airline pilot. FAA requirements under Part 61 to earn a Commercial Pilot certificate include:
- Private Pilot with at least 250 hours of total flight time
- 100 hours in powered aircraft
- 100 hours of pilot in command (PIC) flight time
- 50 hours of cross-country flight time
- 10 hours of instrument flight training
- 10 hours of flight training in a complex airplane
We have a Piper Arrow available for completing the 10 hours of flight training in a complex airplane. If you’re a Private Pilot with less than 250 hours of total flight time, you can build flight hours in our Cessna 150, 152 or 172.
Please contact us to schedule an appointment to review your log book and flight experience. This will allow us to develop a realistic cost estimate for earning your Commercial Pilot certificate.
