Ground Training

The ground and Flight training are combined during the whole preparation in obtaining the Commercial Pilot License.
The theoretical part of the training that takes place in the classroom and is taught by our flight instructors, certified by the FAA. In order to complete The Instrument Rating under Part 141, there is a minimum requirement of 35 hours of ground training. The Ground Training is divided into 3 stages. During the ground school training, the student will have 3 exams, one for each stage. Additionally, you will be able to attend the theoretical training from the comfort of your home with Flying Academy Worldwide Online Campus.

Flight Training

The Flight Training will take place in single-engine aircraft and in single-engine complex aircraft.
In order to obtain a Commercial Pilot License, the pilot must complete a minimum of 55 hours of dual flight under Part 141 and a minimum of 20 hours of dual flight under Part 61.
This training will also be divided into 3 stages and will have 3 stage flight tests. The student will obtain the necessary aeronautical skill and experience necessary to meet the requirements for a Commercial Pilot License.

Practical Exams

The final aeronautical knowledge and practical test is the checkride. It will be taken at the end of all the training and consist of an oral and practical exam. Once the student passes this exam, he/she will obtain the Commercial Pilot License.

Theoretical Exams

Towards the end of the course, you will have to demonstrate a sufficient level of theoretical knowledge at an FAA approved testing center in the form of a written test.
