Commercial Pilot Professional Series

This series prepares students for a Federal Aviation Administration license as a commercial pilot with an instrument rating. Before enrolling in this program, students must meet the physical and legal requirements for becoming a commercial pilot. Students are required to have proof of U.S. citizenship or TSA approval and have a valid second-class medical certificate to enroll in this series.  A second application is required for admission. 

As of August 1, 2016, students need to have already completed a private pilot's license as a prerequisite for the subsequent flight training. Students already holding the required pilot's license and ratings may convert their experience through the college's prior learning assessment process.

Upon completion of this program students will be able to:

  • Earn a Federal Aviation Administration Instrument Pilot Rating;
