How Many Flight Hours To Become A Commercial Pilot
If your love affair with aviation leads you to choose flight as a vocation, you should pursue flight training with Paragon Flight. We offer programs for you to fulfill all of your aviation ambitions under both the FAR Parts 61 and 141 regulations, with different guidelines regarding how many flight hours you’ll need to document to become a commercial pilot.
The specialized training that you’ll receive at Paragon Flight will provide you with the information and experience you need to earn the commercial certification required to make a living as a pilot. Without the appropriate commercial pilot license, any acceptance of payment for flight services will be criminal. Come to us for a comprehensive, affordable, and customized program of study.
Paragon Flight, operating under both FAR Parts 61 and 141, creates programs that suit the individual student based on these guidelines. If you participate in a Part 61 program, you’ll need to log 250 hours of flight time while pilots in a Part 141 program will need a minimum of 190 hours.
When you’re ready to begin training, reach out to schedule your initial meeting with Paragon Flight’s Chief Flight Instructor, who will sit down with you and create a program that works with your schedule, budget, and goals.
Coming to Paragon Flight secures students several benefits including plenty of opportunities for logging flight hours, top-notch curriculum, well-trained and highly experienced flight instructors, a well-kept TAA designated fleet, and a dedicated program of flight training.
The commercial pilot flight training program will include ground training, simulator training, and practical training. The coursework will provide a thorough understanding of aerodynamics, flight operations, meteorology, NTSB rules, and all other aspects needed to operate safely and clear FAA evaluations.
The practical training that you experience will be one-on-one, and we will provide as much of this time as you need to comfortably take and pass your check-ride.
After securing your commercial license, we suggest that you earn your Instrument Flight Rating and even your Flight Instructor Certification. With an Instrument Flight Rating, you’ll be able to haul cargo or provide transport to passengers in addition to flying in additional conditions, and as a Certified Flight Instructor, you’ll gain experience, document flight time, and make a living while sharing your passion.
At Paragon Flight, student-pilots learn from a pilot carefully selected to suit their learning style, personality, and goals. This area draws in pilots from all over the world, and we gratefully choose the best of them to fill our pool of flight instructors.
The fleet here is equally ready for service. We keep all of our planes up to and beyond the FAA standards through the diligent oversight, inspection, maintenance, and repair of FAA-certified mechanics. The fleet features the Piper PA28 “Pilot,” Cessna C172S Skyhawk, Piper PA-44-180 Seminole, Cessna T182T Skylane, Cirrus SR20 G6, Cirrus SR22 G5/G6, and ALSIM AL172 Flight Simulator.
