About the Professional Airline Pilot Course
Our airline professional pilot course is designed utilizing a proven syllabus. This fast track style training takes you from zero time to a commercial flight instructor with multi-engine and instrument ratings. We have several package options with housing available.
Most other professional pilot programs will try to squeeze all of your training into 250 hours with little to no flexibility. We realize this is unrealistic for most students and have designed our program with flexibility and additional hours to ensure you receive the licenses and ratings you need to start earning a living as a pilot.
To ensure the highest quality of training with adequate instructor to student ratio we limit the size of each class. Classes begin the first week of each month.
What's It Take to Become an Airline Pilot?
Most regional airlines require the following:
- 23 Years old.
- 1500 Hours Total Time

Most of these hour requirements are met by flight instructing, however other jobs such as pipeline inspection, freight, or flying skydivers are also common jobs for commercial pilots.
