Training pilots safely and successfully for over 25 years.
After you have a Private Pilot License, earning a Commercial Pilot License would enable you to work as a pilot. The Commercial License is an entry level working license; it is a prerequisite for more advanced ratings such as Certified Flight Instructor, CFI Instrument, and Airline Transport Pilot. We offer courses for all these ratings. The training requirements and costs are outlined below. An individual with a Private License in helicopters could probably earn a Commercial License in 1.5 to 2 months, if they train agressively. If you know you intend to earn your CFI rating, you should train for that while you are training for your Commercial, and it could be completed in an additional 2-3 weeks. The cost estimates below are based on the FAA minimums for completing the respective licenses. Actual cost varies based on individual ability and performance.
