P3 Training Timeline
Weeks 0-10 – Private Pilot (PPL) – This certification lets you operate a single-engine aircraft in conditions that allow for Visual Flight Rules (VFR). The training serves as a foundation for all of the further training needed in your journey toward becoming a commercial pilot.
Weeks 11-18 – Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) – To fly in low visibility weather with avionics, pilots need this training. An IFR rating allows pilots to fly using communication and navigation tech as well. These skills are all essential to commercial flight endeavors.
Weeks 19-30 – Commercial License, Single Engine and Multi Engine (CSEL and CMEL) – At this point, you’ll be ready to move on to earning your commercial license. While we provide an efficient training experience, we do not do this by lowering our standards for single-engine or multi-engine training, or any other phase in the process for that matter.
Weeks 31-38 – Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) – While optional, learning to train others to fly is the completion of this program. Serving as a flight instructor allows aspiring airline pilots to document the 1,500 flight hours that they’ll need in order to apply for those roles while making a living teaching student-pilots.
