Private Pilot License
Earning a Private Pilot License is the first step in any aviation career. The PPL permits the holder to pilot a single-engine aircraft privately (not for pay). Whether for personal or professional purposes, earning your PPL will start you down your desired aviation pathway.
After completion of the PPL, students may begin their Instrument Rating training. The Instrument Rating course trains pilots to fly an aircraft solely by reference to instruments in conditions of low visibility. For instance, pilots can fly in cloud cover or at night.
The completion of a Commercial Rating permits the holder to be paid for his or her work. This certificate opens up the door to a career as a professional pilot and to a host of additional employment opportunities. And for those who plan to pursue a career as an Airline Transport Pilot, the Commercial Rating is essential.
