PEA is uniquely approved by the FAA under FAR Part 141.55(e) to complete the Initial Commercial Pilot License (Single-Engine or Multi-Engine) in 50 hours, compared to nearly all other FAA Part 141 Flight Schools requirements of 120 hours. PEA offers two pathways to accomplish this.
141-311 CPSETC – Commercial Pilot Single-Engine Training Course. This course can be completed in only 50 flight hours. Pilots that choose this route usually continue on to the 141-421 AARMELI Multi-Commercial Add-On (self-examining) course (15 hours flight), and end up earning both Commercial Pilot Licenses in 65 hours.
141-421 AAR MELI (self-examining) – Additional Aircraft Rating Multi-Engine Land Instrument, or Multi-Private Course, followed by our 141-341 CPMETC – Commercial Pilot Multi-Engine Training Course. The Multi-Commercial Initial Course is only 35 flight hours. However, to be eligible to take this course, pilots must have completed our 15 flight hour Multi-Private course as a pre-requisite. The major benefit to this route is the pilot earns additional Multi-Engine experience, and during the entire Commercial portion of the training, the Pilot is earning Mutli-Engine PIC time. Pilots that choose this route usually continue on to a short Single-Commercial Add-On course and end up earning both Commercial Pilot Licenses in approximately the same 65 hours.

The Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) is the highest certificate a pilot can achieve. A pilot must have a total of 1,500 flight hours before applying for this certificate. Prior to entering this program, a pilot must have completed Commercial, Instrument, Multi- Engine and Instructor Ratings (CFI, CFII & MEI). Utilizing the Instructor Rating, the pilot may be eligible to join our staff. The pilot will build flight time and experience. Pilots will be compensated for flight instructing, ground instruction and simulator training.
Also, due to the demanding environment of today’s high-tech cockpits, there is a greater emphasis on multi crew coordination. The CRM/Human Factors Course familiarizes the pilot with what is expected of him/her in this environment. The Glass Cockpit Training Course further helps the pilot operate in a multi-crew environment, managing today’s aircraft advanced systems. After completing this program, the pilot is trained for the Airline Transport Pilot
Certificate and qualified in single engine aircraft with knowledge of advanced turbine systems.
Prerequisite: If you have 186 hours and a CFI/CFII/MEI, you can get 1,500 hours and your ATP license under the ATP I Training Program.
