Private Certificate – This is the basic rating required of all pilots. A Private certificate will allow you to carry family members & friends and enjoy the privileges and freedom of flight. All other ratings in the program build from this primary rating.
Commercial Certificate –A Commercial rating is required for a pilot to be employed as a professional pilot. While this is not the only rating needed to become employable, it is generally the second step in flight training.
Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) – The CFI rating enables a pilot to teach other Private, Commercial and CFI students in the helicopter and in a classroom. We encourage students enrolled in our Pilot Program to work towards their CFI rating at the same time they are preparing for their Commercial rating. A pilot’s first job flying will likely be as an instructor, which is why we include this training in the Professional Pilot Program.
Instrument Rating (IFR) – The Instrument Rating enables a pilot to fly the aircraft referencing only the instrument panel, a desirable skill to possess in clouds or any situation where visibility is impaired. In today’s job market, most employers require this rating. It’s a big Plus.
Certified Flight Instrument Instructor (CFI-I) – Instrument Instructor rating enables the pilot to teach Instrument and CFI-I students both in the helicopter and in a classroom. Although employers are not necessarily looking for CFI-I applicants, the rating adds depth to a pilot’s skills and is attractive to potential employers.
