Flight Training for a Jet PIlot

Flight Training for a Jet PIlotBefore considering commercial jet training, pilot students should have their 40 hour requirements completed in addition to the specific time requirements for single engine airplane. These requirements are:

  • 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 1) One cross-country flight of over 100 nautical miles total distance; and 2)10 takeoffs and 10 landings to a full stop (with each landing involving a flight in the traffic pattern) at an airport.
  • 3 hours of flight training in a single-engine airplane on the control and maneuvering of an airplane solely by reference to instruments
  • 3 hours of flight training in preparation for the practical test in a single-engine airplane, which must have been performed within 60 days preceding the date of the test
  • 10 hours of solo flight time in a single-engine airplane, consisting of at least 5 hours of solo cross-country time; One solo cross-country flight of at least 150 nautical miles total distance

The transition from a light single-engine training aircraft, or light twin aircraft for that matter, to the cockpit of a large commercial jet aircraft is an overwhelming challenge for any inexperienced pilot. The procedures and culture of a commercial multi-crew cockpit is completely different and new; the feel of the controls, interfacing with the automation, the complex aircraft systems, the increase of speed and accelerated pace of the flow, cockpit protocol, the list seems endless. An inexperienced pilot simply doesn’t know what he doesn’t know; the basic procedural knowledge that is absolutely crucial to effectively function in the large jet multi-crew cockpit environment. One of the primary reasons airlines require a type rating is to insure that you have proven to actually have the knowledge and skills to function in a multi-crew cockpit.

Attempting to accomplish this advanced training with no previous experience is like trying to build a house with all the materials but no tools. Failure to prepare for this advanced training inevitably results in extended training time at a very expensive hourly rate. The average hourly rate of a 737NG or A320 Full Flight Simulator can average $800 per hour. This is not the time or place for remedial training.

Flying a jet aircraft requires many hours of experience in smaller, slower and less complex aircraft. Experience as a pilot is measured in flight time. Most pilots are required to have 40 to 50 hours of flight time just to get their private pilot’s license. By the time a pilot has gotten the other ratings typically required to fly a jet aircraft, they’re looking at a minimum of 250 hours. This includes the minimum times required to obtain the following ratings: commercial and instrument. Jet aircraft that have a gross takeoff weight of over 12,500 pounds also require a specific type rating for that particular aircraft. While some regional airlines have been known to hire pilots with as little as 250 hours to fly as a first officer on a regional jet, 1,500 hours or higher is more typical. Fifteen hundred hours is also the minimum flight time required to obtain an Airline Transport Pilot rating or ATP. Most pilots in general aviation build up flight time as flight instructors. The physical requirements for flying a jet aircraft are equal to those needed to maintain a first-class physical.

Is Your Flight Training Up To High Standards To Get a Pilot Job

Is Your Flight Training Up To High Standards To Get a Pilot Job

Quality of Flight Training

Flight school location is a key factor and can make the difference in the amount of flight training months or even a year needed to complete a professional airline pilot training program. Some of the best flight training facilities are located in sunny Florida where the weather provides optimal flying time. Throughout a year Florida flights schools are able to run their flight training program because the weather is good. The top Florida flight schools have excellent instructors. Qualifications of flight instructors are important and you need to do your research to find out if you are getting the best instruction with top standards. Top flight schools in Florida offer a wide range of professional flight training programs to cater to the needs of all students including international students who wish to study abroad. When choosing a Flight School, carefully review the the types of flight training programs offered and look for the school that offers part 141 that is approved by FAA.

Know Your Pilot Licenses

There are two primary certificates, commonly called licenses, that you can earn in order to enjoy the privileges, challenges, and beauty of flying. They are the recreational pilot certificate and the private pilot certificate. To be eligible to receive either certificate in a single-engine airplane, there are a few minimum requirements.

You must:

  • Be 16 years old to solo.
  • Be 17 years old to receive your pilot certificate.
  • Read, speak, and understand English.
  • Hold at least a third-class medical certificate.
The Recreational Pilot Certificate

The recreational pilot certificate requires fewer training hours than the private certificate and can be earned in as few as 30 hours as compared to the 40 hours needed for the private. The reasoning behind this is that as a recreational pilot you receive fewer hours of cross-country navigation flight training because you must remain within 50 nautical miles of your home base. You also won’t have to learn to fly in airspace requiring communications with air traffic control. And night operations and flight by reference to instruments, which are part of the private pilot training, are eliminated from the recreational pilot’s curriculum.

The Private Pilot Certificate

A private pilot certificate is like a driver’s license. It allows you to fly anywhere in the United States and even outside the United States when you comply with regulations of the foreign country where the aircraft is operated. You can carry any number of passengers, and you can share certain operating expenses with your passengers. There are fewer limitations for a private pilot then there are for a recreational pilot. Although, there are currency and medical requirements to make sure you stay proficient and healthy, only a few other factors affect when and where you can fly. Once you earn your license, you are free to wander around in the skies below 18,000 feet above sea level to your heart’s content. You might take the family on a trip to see relatives in a distant state or use an airplane to shorten the time it takes to make business trips to another city.

Getting a Job as Pilot

Once your flight training, pilot license and medical requirements are fulfilled, it is time to polish up your resume. There are plenty of jobs available for brilliant and knowledgeable pilots. How do you get hired?
What qualities and skills airiline personnel managers are looking for to make a hiring decision? Outlined below are some suggestions from Paula W that can help you review your resume and land a job (land a plane wink*) as a pilot.

There are many things that airlines look for when they’re hiring captains and first officers for Airbus 320s, Boeing 737s, and other pilot jobs. Get out a copy of your resume and review how well your resume reflects the items they value most.

While there may be many candidates that have similar or equal skills and all should meet the posted minimums for the job, here are some ways you can really stand out from the crowd.

Having a type rating sets candidates apart.

Be sure your hours and ratings are current on ANY resume you send out, whether or not it’s specifically required by the position!

Communications Skills (listening, verbal, written).

By far, the one skill mentioned most often by employers is the ability to listen, write, and speak effectively. Successful communication is critical in business.

Sample bullet point describing this skill:

Exceptional listener and communicator who effectively conveys information verbally and in writing.


Flexibility/Adaptability/Managing Multiple Priorities

Deals with your ability to manage multiple assignments and tasks, set priorities, and adapt to changing conditions and work assignments.

Sample bullet point describing this skill:

Flexible team player who thrives in environments requiring ability to effectively prioritize and juggle multiple concurrent projects.

Interpersonal Abilities

The ability to relate to your co-workers, inspire others to participate, and mitigate conflict with co-workers is essential given the amount of time spent at work each day.

Sample bullet point describing this skill:

Proven relationship-builder with unsurpassed interpersonal skills.

Leadership/Management Skills

While there is some debate about whether leadership is something people are born with, these skills deal with your ability to take charge and manage your co-workers.

Sample bullet point describing this skill:

Goal-driven leader who maintains a productive climate and confidently motivates, mobilizes, and coaches employees to meet high performance standards.

Multicultural Sensitivity/Awareness

There is possibly no bigger issue in the workplace than diversity, and job-seekers must demonstrate a sensitivity and awareness to other people and cultures.

Sample bullet point describing this skill:

Personable professional whose strengths include cultural sensitivity and an ability to build rapport with a diverse workforce in multicultural settings.

Planning/Organizing

Deals with your ability to design, plan, organize, and implement projects and tasks within an allotted timeframe. Also involves goal-setting.

Results-driven achiever with exemplary planning and organizational skills, along with a high degree of detail orientation.

Problem-Solving/Reasoning/Creativity

Involves the ability to find solutions to problems using your creativity, reasoning, and past experiences along with the available information and resources.

Sample bullet point describing this skill:

Innovative problem-solver who can generate workable solutions and resolve issues.

Teamwork.

Because so many jobs involve working in one or more work-groups, you must have the ability to work with others in a professional manner while attempting to achieve a common goal.

Sample bullet point describing this skill:

Resourceful team player who excels at building trusting relationships with customers and colleagues.

Flight Training Beginnings

Flight Training BeginningsBecoming a pilot requires extensive and serious training. Most training courses today are a mixture of practical exercises performed in the air. Aside from this, there is theoretical learning performed on the ground. The initial training is designed especially for beginners. Specialized trainings are done as the student advances.

Flight training can be extremely demanding emotionally, mentally and physically. Once the student made the decision to start to flight training, a student should do so with great self discipline and determination. With the training and the right resources, most people can learn to fly an aircraft at the basic level.

Learning to fly an airplane can be done for fun or for profit. There are several different classes of pilots’ licenses in the private and commercial categories, as well as military flight certifications. The most basic class of license is the Private Pilot’s license. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, private pilots can fly planes anywhere in the country, but can’t receive payment for flying. The first step to obtaining any pilot’s license is getting a student permit for flying. Listed below are some guidelines you can follow to begin your flight training suggested by Hans Fredrick:

  1. Pass your medical exam. In order to obtain any type of pilot’s license you are required to pass a medical exam. There are different types of medical tests that might be administered if you’re trying to learn to fly through the military rather than through a private flight school. You need at least a third-class medical certificate to obtain a student pilot certificate.


  2. Register in a flight school with FAA-approved flight instructors. These are known as Certified Flight Instructors, or CFIs. Almost everything in terms of pilot training is denoted in terms of hours. You will have to fly for a certain number of hours with an instructor before you can apply for your private license. You must have logged at least 40 total hours of flight time, 20 of which must be with an instructor, before you can apply.



  3. Apply for your pilot’s license. Although you can fly solo with a student’s pilot license, there are restrictions. Once you have logged the required number of hours, you should apply for your full pilot’s license.


  4. Take further training to move up to larger and commercial aircraft. The next logical step in training is to obtain an instrument rating, or IR. Then, you can apply to study for your commercial pilot’s license, or CPL. In order to obtain a CPL, you will have to log a minimum of 250 hours of flight time. These requirements are reduced if you train in a FAA-certified flight school.



Determining the cost of flight school is the most difficult part of receiving your pilot’s license. On average, obtaining a pilot’s license will cost about $4,000. Because of a variety of factors, it is very difficult to get an exact estimate of what your flight school will cost.

Before spending thousands of dollars on your college education and or flight training school, we recommend you come and visit us here at the Aviator College of Aeronautical Science & Technology. The tour will consist of visiting with our instructors and students, a tour of the maintenance facility, the airplanes and our housing. We will also schedule for you to ride along on one of our training flights. For further information and to make reservations, please feel free to contact Admissions at 772-466-4822.

Hourly Requirments for Commercial Pilot Certification

Hourly Requirments for Commercial Pilot CertificationA commercial pilot license allows you to be paid as a professional pilot. An individual with a private pilot’s license cannot be paid for flying a plane to carry passengers or cargo. The pilot must have at least a commercial rating. The Federal Aviation Administration, the agency that governs flight activities in the United States, issues commercial pilot licenses to individuals who meet the agency’s minimum flying time requirements. The starting point to acquiring a commercial pilot license is a private pilot license. Outlined below are requirements and hours of flying time needed to obtain a commercial pilot certification written by Elias Westnedge.

General Requirements

The FAA has different total flight time minimums for commercial pilot licenses based on which type of flight schools students attend. Individuals attending Part 61 schools, which provide unstructured training curricula, must amass a minimum of 250 hours of total flying time before receiving commercial pilot licenses. In contrast, students in Part 141 flight training centers, which provide highly structured, planned aviation instruction, need only complete 190 hours of total flying time before getting a commercial pilot license.

FAA-certified Part 141 approved flight program At Aviator Flight Training Academy

Our FAA-certified Part 141 approved flight programs provide students with the skills and experience demanded by today’s commercial aviation industry. Aviator is accredited by the ACCSC (Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges).

Our Professional Pilot Program is set in a flight training, structured environment to ensure the student receives the knowledge that is required to be a professional pilot.  This program is from 0 hours to over 250 hours, of which 200 hours will be multi-engine time.  The program includes Private Pilot Single Engine through the Multi-Engine Flight Instructor Certificate. Cross Country flying is coast-to-coast, if desired.

At Aviator, all flight training is logged in aircraft. Our Flight Training Devices (FTDs) are used for ground training purposes only. NO FTDs (SIMULATORS) ARE USED FOR FLIGHT TIME TOWARDS YOUR RATINGS!


Cross-Country Flying Time

The FAA defines cross-country flying as any trip beginning at one airport and ending at another. Cross-country flying experience is a key part of commercial pilot training. Students training with Part 61 flight schools need to have at least 50 hours of cross-country flying time to earn a commercial license, including at least one day and one night cross-country flight to destinations at least 100 nautical miles from their home airports. Students enrolled in Part 141 training centers are exempt from the cross-country requirements, but must still complete the two 100-nautical-mile trips.



Pilot-in-Command Time

In addition to training time with certified flight instructors, commercial pilot license candidates also must complete several hours of flight time on their own, which the FAA calls “pilot-in-command,” or PIC, time. To earn a commercial pilot license under Part 61, a person must complete at least 100 hours of PIC time. An individual doing flight training at a Part 141 training school only needs 10 hours of pilot-in-command flight experience to become eligible for a commercial pilot license.



Complex-Aircraft Time

Pilots looking to earn commercial certificates in airplanes must undergo several training flights in “complex” aircraft, which are airplanes that have constant-speed propellers, flaps and retractable landing gear or a turbine engine. Regardless of whether students train at Part 61 or Part 141 schools, they need to complete a minimum of 10 hours of flight instruction in such airplanes.

Flight Instructor Jobs At Flight Training Centers and Academies

Flight Instructor Jobs At Flight Training Centers and AcademiesFlight instructors are licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration, or FAA, to give flight and ground training to pilots. Certified flight instructors, commonly known in the aviation industry as CFIs, are employed by many institutions including universities, flight training centers and aircraft manufacturers. CFI salaries vary widely based on employer and location.

Certified Flight Instructors, or CFIs, teach students how to fly an airplane. CFIs offer instruction on private piloting, instrument and commercial training and ground instruction. They also perform FAA-regulated flight check outs and proficiency checks. Depending upon the level of training, a CFI can teach either single- or multi-engine courses as well.

Becoming A Flight Instructor

Before you can begin training for certification as a flight instructor, you’ll need to hold a valid commercial pilot certificate and a current medical certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Below you will find some instructions and guidelines on how to become a flight instructor (source: ehow).

Complete private pilot training and obtain your private pilot license. To complete this training, you must be at least 17 years old at the time of your FAA check ride for this license. You must also pass a medical exam, knowledge exam, practical flight and oral exam and meet the flight requirements demonstrating your ground course experience, solo flight capabilities and cross-country flying, all under visual flight rules (VFR).

Obtain your instrument rating. For this rating, you learn to fly using instrument flight rules (IFR) so that you may fly in less then favorable weather such as rain showers, low visibility and foggy conditions. You learn how to conduct an IFR approach into an airport for landing the airplane.



Become a commercial pilot. This license allows you to fly for hire, unlike a private pilot who may only fly for leisure purposes. In addition to having your private pilot license with instrument rating, you must pass a second-class medical exam and be at least 18 years old with 250 hours of total flight time. Of that time, you must meet the 10-hour multi-engine flight time if you plan to fly multi-engine aircraft for hire, meet the requirements for cross-country time and pilot in command (PIC) time. Like the private license, you must also pass a practical flight and oral exam, as well as a knowledge exam.



Take a CFI course, which includes a curriculum on how to fly the airplane from the right, or instructor’s seat, while teaching the fundamentals of piloting to a student. CFI courses include extensive training on the responsibility of teaching a student while maintaining safety at all times. This course also explains flight techniques, calmly correcting errors and encouraging students’ learning.

Maintain CFI performance and medical status in accordance to FAA regulations.

Flight Instructor Careers

University Instructor

Several universities in the United States have aviation programs, and these colleges frequently hire flight instructors to train aviation students. In addition to providing flight instruction, CFIs may also teach classes or offer tutoring sessions. In order to teach flight at a university, a CFI license, bachelor’s degree in aviation or a related field, and industry experience is necessary.



Flight Training Center Instructor

Many CFIs find employment at flight schools located at general aviation airports. These flight schools can be small, family-owned operations or large training centers that produce hundreds of pilots per year. CFIs give flight and ground instruction, and may also teach classes. Requirements vary for instructor positions at flight schools; generally, a CFI certificate with an instrument rating is all that is required. A multi-engine instructor rating is desirable.

Airline Manufacturer Instructor

Many CFIs find employment at aircraft manufacturers, where they teach aircraft owners how to fly their new aircraft. Generally, in addition to CFI and instrument instructor ratings, aircraft manufacturer instructors need flight time in the type of aircraft that the manufacturer makes, as well as a type rating in that aircraft, if applicable.

Flight Training Programs in USA

Flight Training Programs in USAThe aviation field is broad and covers numerous skills and competences. Aviation training programs cover piloting, flight attendants, aviation mechanics and aircraft dispatch. Aviation training programs are open for those looking to start or advance a career in the aviation industry or the adventurous individuals with a passion for piloting. As much as aviation is fun it is quite demanding as it involves travel and working long hours.

Aviation training programs that target piloting are industry and government regulated. The curriculum for these aviation training programs, and the required flight hours for licensing are regulated by the relevant industry bodies. However other aviation training programs’ curricula such as flight attendants and flight dispatch are less regulated. Some airlines even run their own internal aviation training programs for their staff.

Due to increased vigilance in aviation security there have been significant limitations in aviation training for pleasure or for sport. These restrictions have also increased the cost of pilot training as aviation training schools try to meet compliance standards. Required training on flight safety and other safety drills have caused aviation training programs to be reviewed to factor in more lessons on the same.

Although there are many schools offering aviation training programs, you should be on the look out for facilities, instructors and standards. Seek references from friends and family where possible and make use of credible online references. This will ensure you get world class training that will not only help you secure a job but that will ensure your personal safety. In aviation training programs, practical training is very important and therefore attending a school with the requisite facilities and equipment cannot be gainsaid.

Aviation training programs for pilots involve theory and several hours of flying. Normally flying licenses are classified as commercial pilot license, private pilot license and flight instructor license. These licenses are given according to the level of training and flying experience measured in flight hours. For instance generally to get a commercial pilot license you require at least 250 hours of piloting time broken down into day and night time flight and flight with and without an instructor.

Flight Training Programs at Aviator Flight Training Academy

For more than 27 years Aviator has been the leader in multi-engine flight training. We have provided over 5000 professional pilots to the airline industry, both nationally and worldwide, through our Professional Pilot Flight Training Programs. Our FAA-certified Part 141 approved flight programs provide students with the skills and experience demanded by today’s commercial aviation industry. Aviator is accredited by the ACCSC (Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges).

Our Professional Pilot Program is set in a flight training, structured environment to ensure the student receives the knowledge that is required to be a professional pilot. This program is from 0 hours to over 250 hours, of which 200 hours will be multi-engine time. The program includes Private Pilot Single Engine through the Multi-Engine Flight Instructor Certificate. Cross Country flying is coast-to-coast, if desired.

When you choose Aviator, all flight training is logged in aircraft. Our Flight Training Devices (FTDs) are used for ground training purposes only. NO FTDs (SIMULATORS) ARE USED FOR FLIGHT TIME TOWARDS YOUR RATINGS!

This “hands-on” approach provides the best flight training environment for pilots of the future. We encourage training in actual instrument conditions. Flying at the Aviator is 24 hours-a-day, rain or shine. Aviator flight training programs offer more actual multi-engine time than any other school in the country. Our fleet of multi-engine aircraft are equipped with GPS and are being converted to EFIS Systems (Glass Cockpits). Come and take a tour and see the Aviator difference.

Chapter 33 Post 9/11 Benefits for Academic Tuition and Flight Training Fees

Chapter 33 Post 9/11 Benefits for Academic Tuition and Flight Training FeesThe Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

Post 9/11 Benefits and Eligibility

Veterans who have served a minimum of 90 days active duty since September 10, 2001 and have received an honorable discharge qualify for the new Post-9/11 GI Bill. If your service is between 90 days and 36 months you will receive a percentage of the benefits between 40-90%, depending on how long you’ve served. If you have 36 months or more total since 9/11 you will qualify for full 100% benefits on qualifying education. Alternately, if you’ve been discharged due to a service-related disability and have at least 30 continuous days on active duty, you qualify for 100%. Even if you were ROTC or attended a service academy and were thus ineligible for the Montgomery GI Bill, you are now eligible for the new bill (but your active duty clock toward the 90 days to 36 months doesn’t start until you’ve completed the initial service obligation for your program).

School Tuition and Fees

The Post 9-11 GI Bill will pay eligible individuals:

  • Your full tuition & fees directly to the school for all public school in-state students. For those attending private or foreign schools tuition & fees are capped at $17,500 per academic year. If you are attending a private Institution of Higher Learning in AZ, MI, NH, NY, PA, SC or TX you may be eligible for a higher tuition reimbursement rate. Click here for more information.
  • For those attending a more expensive private school or a public school as a non-resident out-of-state student, a program exists which may help to reimburse the difference. This program is called the “Yellow Ribbon Program”. (Click on the link for more information about the Yellow Ribbon Program, not everyone is eligible for the program). 
For those attending classes at the greater than ½ time rate, a monthly housing allowance (MHA) based on the Basic Allowance for Housing for an E-5 with dependents at the location of the school. For those enrolled solely in distance learning the housing allowance payable is equal to ½ the national average BAH for an E-5 with dependents ($673.44 for the 2011 academic year & $684.00 for the 2012 academic year). For those attending foreign schools (schools without a main campus in the U.S.) the MHA rate is fixed at $1,346.88 for the 2011 academic year & $1,368.00 for the 2012 academic year. The academic year begins on August 1. (Active duty students & their spouses cannot receive the MHA.) 

  • An annual books & supplies stipend of $1,000 paid proportionately based on enrollment. 

  • A one-time rural benefit payment for eligible individuals.

This benefit provides up to 36 months of education benefits, generally benefits are payable for 15 years following your release from active duty.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill also offers some service members the opportunity to transfer their GI Bill to dependents.

A Post-9/11 GI Bill is available to former and current members of the United States military to help them pay for a college education. According to GIBill.com: “Effective August 1, 2009, the Post-9/11 GI Bill is among the most comprehensive education benefit programs veterans and active-duty servicemembers have ever had.” Students must choose a school that is approved by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to receive this funding. Schools and universities across the U.S. accept the GI Bill.

Aviator College is approved by the Veteran’s Administration under the GI Bills for both academic tuition and flight training fees
. Prospective student who performed active duty after September 10, 2001 have additional eligiblity for funding. Read about the new VA benefit in a letter from the Director of VA Education Services http://www.gibill.va.gov

All pilots must now present a valid passport or birth certificate upon arrival. For any additional information please contact our Financial Aid Department.
