Introducing the P3 Professional Pilot Program

We focus on helping students find appropriate funding. Allow our team to help you identify the right financial resources for your situation and then provide any needed assistance during the application process.

The program prioritizes quality training over a high quantity of training. The schedule is accelerated and rigorous:

Private Pilot License (PPL) – 0-10 WEEKS

The first phase of the program provides the foundation upon which all following aviation training will rely. This foundation focuses on developing best practices, good habits, and basic skills required of a pilot.

Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) – 11-18 WEEKS

The next phase of the P3 program teaches newly minted private pilots how to use communication and navigation equipment to fly in additional conditions. These skills are essential for commercial pilots during virtually every flight. 

Commercial License, Single Engine & Multi Engine (CSEL & CMEL) – 19-30 WEEKS

The third phase of the program teaches pilots every skill needed to operate in a professional capacity as the Pilot in Command (PIC) of a single-engine or multi-engine aircraft.

Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) – 31-38 WEEKS

The final phase of the program will provide commercial pilots with an entry point into the industry. As a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI), you’ll be able to share your love of flight with others, hone your skills, and make a living. This role can be particularly helpful for pilots whose ambitions require additional flight hours.
