Sport pilot (spl-A)
The Sport Pilot Certificate is one of the newest pilot licenses from the FAA. This license offers many great advantages over traditional pilot licenses including no required medical and lesser training requirements. With a Sport Pilot Certificate you will be able to pilot light-sport category aircraft while carrying a passenger. The Sport Pilot Certificate is great for getting into aviation without the burden of a medical or the added training costs!
Private pilot (ppl-A)
The Private Pilot Certificate is the entry level pilot license from the FAA. This license is for individuals who plan to fly for their personal business and/or pleasure, but not engage in work for compensation or hire. With your Private Pilot Certificate you are permitted to take family, friends, and co-workers on board your own aircraft or the aircraft you are renting while acting as Pilot in Command.
instrument rating (IR-A)
The Instrument Rating is designed to meet the challenges of flying in inclement weather. It is required by the FAA for flying under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). Generally this is the next step for individuals looking to pursue advanced training after obtaining a Private Pilot Certificate. Students will train to Airman Certification Standards while obtaining real-world experience flying in adverse weather (when conditions permit). Our rental aircraft are equipped with GPS equipment approved for IFR operations, so students will be able to practice utilizing state-of-the-art navigation and procedures.
commercial pilot (cpl-A)
The Commercial Pilot Certificate is required for individuals who want to fly for compensation or hire. It is the first step to becoming a professional pilot.
Multi-engine rating (ME)
The Multi-Engine Rating allows individuals to add an extra class to their pilot certificate. Training for the multi-engine rating is completed utilizing a Piper Seminole light twin. During this course students will learn about asymmetric thrust as well as general performance and handling characteristics of light twins.
flight instructor (cfi-A)
The Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) Certificate is required in order to teach others to fly. Once you become a CFI, you will be able to train individuals from student level to instructor as well as give flight reviews and checkouts. As a CFI applicant you will learn from scenarios based on real world experiences; receiving specialized training in spin recovery procedures and stalls in various configurations and situations. During your course of training you will also become proficient teaching flight and ground lessons while developing your own training syllabus.
flight instructor instrument (cfii-A)
The Certified Flight Instructor-Instrument (CFII) Certificate is required in order to teach others to fly under IFR rules. Once you become a CFII you will be able to train individuals towards obtaining an instrument rating as well as provide Instrument Proficiency Checks (IPCs). As a CFII applicant you will learn from scenarios based on real world experiences while enhancing your own instrument skills flying from the right seat. During your course of training you will also become proficient teaching flight and ground lessons while developing your own training syllabus.
