The Shortest Journey to Professional Aviation

The P3 Program offers the shortest course of training for professionally minded student pilots. Within 38 weeks, participants can progress from zero experience to commercial licensing with flight instructor certification. Consider the following scheduling breakdown of the P3 Program:

  • Private Pilot License (PPL), 0-10 weeks – This initial phase of flight training provides pilots with a strong foundation of knowledge and skill for all of the training that follows.
  • Instrument Flight Rating (IFR), 11-18 weeks – To facilitate flight during non-visual conditions, pilots must learn how to operate the navigation and communication equipment within aircraft models. That’s what this second phase of the program accomplishes.
  • Commercial License, Single-Engine and Multi-Engine (CSEL/CMEL), 19-30 weeks – By securing a commercial license, a pilot can legally accept payment for his or her pilot services. We offer the degree of training that produces professional-level pilots of single-engine and multi-engine aircraft.
  • Certified Flight Instructor (CFI), 31-38 weeks – Pilots seeking an entry point into the aviation sector find that working as a flight instructor is an excellent option, especially for pilots who plan to work for an airline since they must log 1,500 hours in the sky before applying to be an airline pilot.
