A Commercial Pilot License Provides More Opportunity
A Commercial Pilot License opens up a plethora of opportunities as a professional pilot. Once you earn this license, you’ll be able to convey passengers or cargo, dust crops, perform aerial surveys, participate in search and rescue, etc. without any limitations on when you are allowed to fly and get paid for your work!
If you pair your commercial license with a flight instructor certificate, you can even make money teaching others to fly.
Commercial Pilot Prerequisites
Before becoming a commercial pilot, you’ll need to secure a valid Private Pilot Certificate (PPL), which is available through training here at Paragon Flight.
Additional requirements include having a 1st or 2nd class Medical Certificate and being a minimum of 18 years old with the ability to communicate thoroughly in written and spoken English.
As part of the Commercial License Pilot program, you will complete ground and flight instruction and log it correctly. Flying requirements demand that you command an aircraft for a minimum of 100 hours with 250 hours of total logged flight time. The FAA written, oral, and practical exams are also required. Having an Instrument Rating may not be an FAA requirement, but it will be a requirement for most professional pilot jobs. Paragon Flight provides the instruction and guidance you’ll need to navigate the requirements and complete them as quickly as possible.
Paragon Flight provides the most up-to-date training possible. We use Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA) to make sure that you’re prepared to transition to any modern aircraft. Currently, our students fly the Cessna 172 Skyhawk, the Cessna Stationair C206H, the Cirrus SR20 and SR22, and the Piper PA-44 Seminole, and each of these aircraft has Glass Cockpit Aviation technology.
In addition to modern, advanced aircraft, we employ the Jeppesen Aviation Training program, the gold standard in pilot education curricula. These instructional materials will help you gain an in-depth understanding of what you need to know in order to be a safe, quality pilot.
