Commercial Pilot TrainingThe commercial pilot training is a course you must complete to qualify to fly an aircraft. In the recent years, the career of a pilot has become one of the top career choices amongst the students all over the world.

There are numerous students all over the world enrolling for the commercial pilot training courses. Acquiring a commercial pilot license is your first step to achieving your long life dream of becoming a commercial pilot. If you have always been intrigued with large commercial planes and you cannot wait to fly such an awesome machine, you need to know what to do to get into the cockpit and captain such a plane. Flying commercial airplanes quite challenging but your first challenge will be to acquire a pilot license. This license authorizes you to take charge as a pilot or co-pilot for single and multi-pilot airplanes respectively.

How To Get Your Commercial Pilot License

Being a commercial pilot allows you to fly to various places while also being paid for it. But, acquiring the license and getting the job is not not at all easy. It requires lots of dedication, training, completion of requirements, and passing all exams. Outlined below are the guidelines to become a commercial pilot.

  • Federal Aviation Regulations

The Federal Aviation Regulations or FAR holds the guidelines for the requirements for anyone wanting to get a helicopter cpl or any commercial pilot certificate. The requirements are extensively enumerated in paragraph 121 through paragraph 123 of part 61 in the Federal Aviation Regulations. Upon application in a flight school, you will be informed of the complete and specific requirements to attaining a commercial pilot certificate.

  • Ground Schooling

The Federal Aviation Regulations require candidates to go through ground schooling where they will know a wide range of information about aviation, as well as certain information about specific aircrafts. The moment a student spends studying must be documented for the Federal Aviation Administration or FAA. After a student completes the mandatory education, he will be required to take and pass the written exam.

  • Flight Time Experience

For an individual to acquire a commercial pilot certificate, he must have at the very least 250 hours of flight time experience. In addition to that, he must also have experience being the pilot-in-command, must have piloted at night, have flown all over the country, have piloted solo, and experienced flying on instrument alone. Whilst the applicant tries to finish all these flight experiences, he must also have experience flying the aircraft on which he intends to fly once he has his commercial pilot certificate. For example, if he intends to attain a license for twin engine, then he should have had time flying a twin-engine aircraft. The student must also have experience flying an aircraft that has retractable landing gear and flaps as part of his flight time experience.

  • Check Ride

After completing the education and the flight time experience prerequisites, the student will then be obliged to pass a test ride or flight exam. In this test, all the know-how and skill-sets he has attained and developed will be tested and checked. The student will demonstrate the right flying procedures, his flying skills, and emergency procedures. Once the student passes the flight exam, he will then be granted the permit to fly an aircraft.

  • Medical Certificate

An individual holding a commercial pilot certificate is required by the Federal Aviation Regulations to maintain a Second Class Medical Certificate. This document, however, is valid only for 12 months. So the pilot must renew this medical certificate every year through a designated medical examiner.

  • Employer’s Prerequisites

After obtaining the commercial pilot certificate, it still does not mean that the person can automatically be welcomed by any big airline company. While individual companies may have their own individual requirements for their applicants, they also require that applicants attain an Air Transport Pilot rating. The Air Transport Pilot or ATP requires applicants to finish 1,500 hours of flight time, more education, more tests, and more flight exams.

Pilot applicants to major airlines are also required to undergo additional instrument flying tests, wherein they will fly the aircraft while relying only on its instruments.

The programs at Aviator Academy are designed to provide what the airline industry demands of future commercial pilots. The training you will receive at Aviator is one of the most intensive and challenging programs offered in aviation today.

The school’s new 37,000 sq. ft. training facilities are open from 7 am to 6 pm daily and provisions are made to access the aircraft for flight training 24 hours-a-day, rain or shine. Contact us today to schedule a visit.
