The Qualifications for Commercial Pilot Licensing Programs
A Commercial Pilot Certificate permits holders to operate aircraft for pay. When you achieve this goal, you’ll be able to fly during the day or night and haul packages or passengers.
The jobs available to you with a Commercial Pilot License will allow you to lead the type of life you aspire to. You can spend your time traveling the world flying for an airline, transporting private clients, helping the injured or sick reach medical care, or living a quiet life as an agricultural pilot. These few examples are by no means expansive or comprehensive.
If you wish to take part in Commercial Pilot training, you must be:
- 18 years old
- Fluent and literate in the English language
- A currently licensed private pilot
- In possession of a current 2nd Class Medical Certificate
The specific training that you’ll complete will include the following requirements:
- Documentation of 250 total flight hours
- Documentation of 100 flight hours as Pilot-in-Command (PIC)
- 50 hours as PIC cross-country/50 hours in airplanes
- Documentation of 20 hours of dual flight time
- 2 hours a day and 2 hours night cross-country
- 10 hours instrument training
- 10 hours complex aircraft
- Documentation of 10 hours of solo flight time
- 5 hours in night VFR conditions
- 300 nm cross-country (3 airport landings)

The commercial pilot certificate is one step on a ladder toward flying for an airline. If that’s the rung you’re after, we can help.
We suggest that you follow through with an Instrument Flight Rating, Multi-Engine Rating, Certified Flight Instructor, and Airline Transport Pilot Certificate. Of course, if you plan to work for an airline, you will also need to log a minimum of 1,500 flight hours, something you can do while providing flight instruction. Once employed by the airline, you will also face requirements to become certified on each aircraft you will fly.
