Professional Programs


Professional Program I: 136 Hrs

This program is designed to enable a private pilot to obtain a Commercial Certificate with Instrument and Multi-Engine Ratings. Additionally, the student receives flight instructor training to achieve the Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) and Certified Flight Instructor Instrument Rating (CFII). With these ratings, the pilot increases his/her hiring opportunities. The Unusual Attitude and Upset Recovery Training course is included.

This course is uniquely customized to ensure it directly meets the training needs of the professional pilot. A rigorous combination of hands-on maneuver-based and scenario based training profiles both increase the student’s fundamental flying skills as well as directly compliment the rapid development of aeronautical decision making amidst potentially life-threatening upset/emergency conditions. The DA-42 systems ground school prepares the students to operate within a complex multi-engine glass environment similar to what is being utilized in the present and future airline industry. Upon completion, the pilot will be qualified to work as a flight instructor in single-engine aircraft, teaching students to become certified Private, Commercial and Instrument-Rated pilots. 

These ratings are very useful to advance a pilot’s flight time and experience:
