Commercial Pilot Certificate

The Commercial Pilot Certificate course is your ticket to what every pilot wants: get paid to fly airplanes!

Throughout this course, you will learn new maneuvers such as eights-on-pylons and chandelles, as well as discover the various applicable regulations to becoming a Commercial Pilot. This is the beginning of your career as a pilot!

You have two possible paths to receive your Commercial Certificate. Most students will receive their Commercial Certificate via a Single Engine airplane first and later add on a Multiengine rating.

During the Single Engine portion of your training, you will learn to fly a Complex aircraft, one that has a constant speed propeller and a retractable landing gear! At North-Aire, our complex aircraft is a Cessna 182R.

During the Multiengine portion of your training, you will fly a twin-engine Cessna 310 aircraft. This airplane is your introduction to bigger and faster airplanes. You will mainly go over procedures of how to fly multiengine aircraft as well as the safety aspect of it.
