THE PROFESSIONAL PILOT TRAINING COURSES
The first step is a Private Pilot License which enables you to fly and carry passengers in VFR (Visual Flight Rule) weather. After your Private License, if you wish to become a Professional Pilot and fly for hire you will need to obtain additional ratings and licenses.
The Instrument Rating is the next step in becoming a Professional Pilot. This requires a minimum of 40 hours instrument dual flight instruction. Obtaining the instrument rating gives you the privilege of flying in IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) condition.
The Commercial Pilot License is the next step to becoming a Professional Pilot. This license requires a minimum of 250 hours of flight time. This license allows you to carry passengers for hire with limited conditions. When you receive this license you will need to build flight time to approximately 1500 hours to qualify for the ATP (Airline Transport Pilot) license.
Multi Engine rating can be obtained during the time building phase of the Commercial Pilots License. This rating has no minimum flight time requirements, and allows you to fly twin engine aircraft.
ATP (Airline Transport Pilot) License, allows you to fly on a scheduled basis (airlines, commuters, freight runs, etc.). To obtain license you need to have 1500 flight hours.
Obtaining your flight instructor license is probably the fastest way to build flight time. While flight instructing is not the method of choice for all pilots, should you choose this method you need to have the desire to teach and be a benefit to your students.
CFI (Certified Flight Instructor) license enables you to teach students who are working on their Private License and Commercial Pilot applicants, along with certain other privileges (aircraft checkouts, flight reviews, etc.)
CFII (Certified Flight Instrument Instructor) license allows you to teach applicants that are working on their instrument rating and instrument recurrency.
MEI (Multi Engine Flight Instructor) license allows you to teach in twin engine aircraft for applicants that are looking to obtain the Multi Engine rating.
Professional Pilot Flight Training Course
Let's Go Fly ACADEMY, offers flight training for most pilot ratings in airplanes, both single engine and multi-engine aircraft. The
following is a list of the courses offered which will lead to career as a professional pilot in aviation. The courses listed may
be taken individually over a longer period of time, or they may be taken in an accelerated manner one right after the other,
depending on how quickly you wish to complete the curriculum. The following is a price list of the approximate cost for each course.
The cost of an individual course is not guaranteed, however the full packages listed below are guaranteed when purchased at the
start of the course.
The individual course prices are listed two ways, first as minimum hours necessary and second, as full course prices. Minimum
course prices assume you already have the flight time necessary to qualify for the license or rating. Full course prices include
flight time necessary to acquire the minimum time necessary to qualify for the license. For example, someone who starts towards
his commercial license needs a total of 250 logged hours to qualify for the license. If he already has the necessary logged
hours, he need only complete the commercial maneuvers. On the other hand, if he begins the course with only a total of 50 logged
hours, then he will have to build additional hours to qualify for the license. The cost for this will be listed as full course
prices. In all cases, the fee charged by the written test and the examiner is paid by the student directly and is not figured into
the price of the course.
Let's Go Fly Academy offers Individual and Full Course packages.
The first step towards your professional career is the PRIVATE PILOT'S LICENSE. The FAA minimums required for the private license are from 35 to 40 hours of flight time, although most people who are serious about flying and fly regularly will take 42 to 48 hours and can complete the program in as little as three weeks.
After obtaining the private license, the next step is an INSTRUMENT RATING. The FAA minimum for this rating is also 35 to 40 hours, and at least 50 hours of pilot-in-command cross-country time. This rating will take about three to five weeks to obtain
Your MULTI-ENGINE RATING will be obtained next as you build flight time towards your commercial license. This rating is a 10 hour course which takes about three to six days, and will qualify you in multi-engine aircraft..
Your COMMERCIAL COURSE will consist of various maneuvers such as lazy eights, chandelles, gliding spirals, eights on pylons, and certain other maneuvers. Building your flight time and preparing for this license will take about four to eight weeks.
