Commercial Pilot License Training

Commercial Pilot License TrainingThe Federal Aviation Administration issues commercial pilot licenses to those who pass FAA commercial pilot written and flight examinations. These licenses allow pilots to fly aircraft for pay, and are prerequisites for pilot jobs with airlines, charter companies, business aviation departments, air tour outfits and other aircraft operators. To qualify for the FAA tests, individuals must complete an FAA-approved commercial pilot training program.

Classroom Training

Federal aviation regulations require students pursuing commercial pilot licenses to undergo ground-based classroom-style training or an approved commercial pilot home study course. This training must cover all aspects of commercial flying, including FAA regulation knowledge, air navigation, meteorological interpretation and weather avoidance and aircraft structures and systems. In addition, commercial pilot classroom training must include instruction on Morse code and air traffic control communication, as well as discussion of advanced aircraft maneuvers, such as chandelles, emergency descents, aggravated stalls and spin recovery.

Flight Requirements

Commercial pilot applicants must be at least 18 years old and have the required amount of flight experience to earn a license. The total amount of flight time required to earn a commercial license varies depending on the type of aircraft. It can range from 150 hours (for helicopters) to 250 hours (for single and multi-engine aircraft).

Flight Maneuvers And Procedures

Prospective commercial pilots must receive training on several advanced flight maneuvers before taking the FAA certification tests. Individuals learn emergency descent procedures, in which they execute banking dives to get to lower altitudes in case of aircraft depressurization. In addition, prospective commercial pilots learn to recover aircraft from aggravated aeronautical stalls and execute advanced aircraft maneuvers such as chandelles, which are high-power climbing turns, and eights-on-pylons, which are maneuvers that allow pilots to navigate solely by reference to the ground. Prospective airplane commercial pilots also need to receive some training in “complex” aircraft, which have retractable gear, constant-speed propellers and flaps.

Cross Country Flight

Individuals undergoing commercial pilot training must also receive training on “cross-country flights,” which are flights from one airport to another airport located at least 50 nautical miles away]. During these flights, students must acquire knowledge on flight planning, fuel management, aerial navigation and air traffic control procedures. Before taking the FAA commercial pilot flight test, a student must complete a “long cross-country flight,” consisting of a flight to another airport at least 50 nautical miles away with a total trip distance of at least 250 nautical miles.

Flight Time

FAA regulations require commercial pilot students to amass certain amounts of flying time before taking the commercial pilot certification tests. A student receiving training at an unstructured “Part 61” flight school must have a minimum of 250 hours of total flying time, 100 hours of “pilot-in-command” time, which is time spent as the final authority of a flight operation. In addition, she must have at least 50 hours of cross-country flying time. Students who train at structured “Part 141″ schools only need 190 hours of flying time before earning commercial licenses and  need not possess the 50 hours of cross-country time required of Part 61 students.
