Commercial Pilot

Hone your skills as a pilot with training for a Commercial Pilot Certificate.  Build on the skills you learned in the Private and Instrument training and gain confidence in the aircraft so that you will be prepared to carry paying passengers and get a job flying as a professional pilot. Whether your professional goal is to fly a Boeing 747, a Cessna Citation, or a cargo plane, you need a Commercial Pilot Certificate to fly for hire. 


In the first stage of the commercial training, you will gain experience and confidence by completing a solo cross-country experience. Dozens of airports throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and California will be at your disposal as you plan and execute your own flight plans during this stage. During the second stage of training, you will be exposed to advanced single-engine airplane maneuvers, as well as to flying a multi-engine aircraft.  You will build skills in the single-engine and/or multi-engine aircraft in preparation for the check ride, which will earn you a Commercial Pilot Certificate.
