Zero to Commercial Pilot Course

Our zero to commercial pilot course is specifically designed to satisfy both the FAA Part 141 requierments and international civil aviation authorities of other countries. Typically a student starts with zero hours as a student pilot, followed by Private Pilot License, Instrument Rating and finally the Commercial Pilot License with Single and Multi Engine Rating options.

Flight training is self paced and is largely dependent on student aptitude and effort put in. If the student is willing to put in the effort and work towards the flight training objectives diligently, flight training can be completed in the shortest possible time.

Typically students complete the zero to Commercial Pilot License course in seven to twelve months. Majority of the students normally complete it in ten months. While flight training is done year around, the best weather for flying are between the months of March and November.

We also offer various other Pilot Training Courses including Certified Flight Instructor – CFI, Certified Flight Instructor Instrument – CFII, Multi Engine Instructor – MEI and Airline Transport Pilot License  – ATPL courses.
