We are here to help you achieve your goal of becoming a certified pilot.
Private Pilot
The majority of pilots begin with their private pilot licence. Enables you to fly practically anyplace in the United States and even abroad as long as you adhere to local rules in the country where the aircraft is flown.
Total Time to obtain Private Pilot License: 40 hours flying minimum which consists of at least:
3 hours of cross country flight training in a single engine airplane.
3 hours of night flight training in a single engine airplane, that includes at least:
1 cross country flight of over 100 nm total distance.
10 T/O’s and 10 landings to a full stop with each involving a flight in the traffic pattern at an airport.
3 hours of flight training by reference to instruments in a single engine airplane.
3 hours of flight training in a single engine airplane within the 60 days prior to the practical test.
5 hours of solo cross country flying.
1 solo cross country flight of at least 150nm total distance with full stop landings at 3 points and one segment of at least 50nm between T/O and landings.
3 T/O’s and landings to a full stop at an airport with an operating control tower.

Commercial Pilot License
Multi-Engine Certificate
The multi-engine rating is added to a commercial pilot certificate. This allows the pilot to operate a twin-engine aircraft. Whether your objective is to be a professional pilot, the multiengine rating is the next step to improving your piloting skills.
With a Commercial Pilot Multi-Engine Certificate, you can do things such as airline, cargo, and corporate flying to build your aviation career.
Assess your knowledge of instrument flight (including subjects such as Federal Aviation Regulations, the Airman’s Information Manual, meteorology, flight planning, aircraft performance, aircraft navigation systems, and emergency procedures.
To demonstrate your ability to properly plan and fly a route under actual or simulated instrument meteorological conditions.
Often, the IPC is conducted by a CFII who does not know you, and therefore, will use the IPC to ensure you possess the essential knowledge of instrument flight rules, planning, and procedures as well as demonstrate the essential skills to fly and manage an aircraft under all phases of flight in instrument meteorological conditions.
Regulations for the flight review (14 CFR 61.56) require a minimum of one hour of ground training and one hour of flight training.
A good rule of thumb, however, is to plan at least 90 minutes of ground time and at least two hours of flight time for a solid evaluation of your instrument flying knowledge and skills.
The IPC will be roughly equivalent to the check ride for your initial instrument rating.
A complex aircraft is defined as any aircraft that possesses flaps, retractable landing gear, and constant speed propeller(s). Unlike other certificates and ratings, the complex endorsement is conveyed solely by a Certified Flight Instructor.
Federal aviation regulations require pilots to have a high-performance airplane endorsement in order to act as pilot-in-command (PIC) of a high-performance airplane. Any airplane with an engine of more than200 horsepower is considered “high-performance.” An airplane with a 200-horsepower engine does not qualify. On a multi-engine airplane, the engines are evaluated individually (horsepower ratings are not added together).

This one-time logbook endorsement can be earned through ground and flight training. The FAA does not require a special checkride or knowledge test to earn the endorsement. A flight instructor gives you the endorsement after you have received training and have been found proficient.

Note: Pilots who logged PIC time in high-performance airplanes prior to 8/4/97 are grandfathered in and don’t need the endorsement.

Instrument Rating
Candidates for an instrument rating will learn a wide array of knowledge in regards to the rating itself and aviation in general, providing a deeper level of understanding of the dynamics of flight.
Flight Planning and Filing Related to IFR.
Navigation — Departure, En Route, and Arrival Operations for IFR.
Airplane Systems Related to IFR Operations.
Instrument Flight Deck Check.
Air Traffic Control Clearances and Procedures.
Instrument Approach Procedures — Non-precision, Precision, Missed, Circling and Landing.
Emergency Operations Related to IFR.
Weather Information.

In addition, you must meet the following federal regulations regarding aeronautical flight experience requirements to earn an Instrument Rating.

Cross-Country PIC 50 Hours.
Instrument Time (Actual or Simulated) 40 Hours.
Cross-Country Flight 250 Nautical Miles.
With Specific Instrument Requirements to Complete the Flight.

A good question to ask yourself before you start instrument training is, why do you want this rating? The answers can usually be grouped into three areas. One common answer is that it’s a good thing to have in your pocket just in case you need it. Next is that it’s just another important step to a career in aviation. The third reason is that you want to increase the productivity of your personal or business flying.

There are different ways to obtain training for your instrument rating, and the reason you want the rating may have an effect on the training method that you choose. Should you enroll in a highly regimented FAR Part 141 school? Perhaps a full-time or part-time instructor at your local airport could do the job. Then, there are the accelerated courses. Some of these come to your location and provide intense training in your own airplane. Others require that you travel to their location. These accelerated courses usually have you finished up in 10 to 12 days. What’s the best? That depends on you. The articles included below will provide information to help you decide.

The instrument rating requirements, as specified in 14 CFR 61.65, are summarized here:

A person who applies for an instrument rating must:
With Specific. Instrument Requirements to Complete the Flight.
Be able to read, speak, write, and understand the English language.
You must have logged the following:
At least 50 hours of cross-country flight time as pilot in command. At least 10 of these hours must be in airplanes for an instrument-airplane rating.
A total of 40 hours of actual or simulated instrument time on the areas of operation listed in 61.65(c).
At least 15 hours of instrument flight training from an authorized instructor in the aircraft category for the instrument rating sought.

For instrument-airplane rating, instrument training on cross-country flight procedures that includes at least one cross-country flight in an airplane that is performed under instrument flight rules.

This flight must consist of:
A distance of at least 250 nm along airways or ATC-directed routing.
An instrument approach at each airport.
Three different kinds of approaches with the use of navigation systems (Example: ILS, VOR, GPS, etc).
At least 3 hours of instrument training that is appropriate to the instrument rating sought from an authorized instructor in preparation for the checkride within two calendar months before the examination date. Flight Training.
Receive and log flight training from an authorized instructor in an aircraft, flight simulator, or flight training device that represents the aircraft appropriate to the instrument rating sought on the areas of operation listed in 61.65(c).
Receive a logbook or training record endorsement from an authorized instructor certifying that you are prepared to take the required practical test.
