FAA Commercial Pilot License
Attaining the status of a commercial pilot is a great milestone. As a commercial pilot, you will be able to fly for compensation or hire ie. work as a pilot. This could include flying passengers, cargo, or in a variety of other pilot capacities. Many commercial pilots pursue careers as flight instructors, charter pilots, and/or fly for the airlines.
Advanced International Aviation Academy’s Commercial Pilot Course is designed to fully prepare you with the skills, attitude, and confidence to act as Pilot in Command of aircraft carrying passengers or cargo commercially for remuneration. Through practice of advanced flight maneuvers, operation of complex and high performance aircraft, and cross country flight experience, you will inspire your passengers with confidence and embody professionalism with your mastery of the aircraft, able to respond to any situation, including emergencies with professionalism, skill and confidence.

Requirements to obtain Commercial Pilot Course
- Be able to read, write, and converse fluently in English.
- Be at least 18 years of age.
- Hold at least a current third-class FAA medical certificate. Later, if your flying requires a commercial pilot certificate, you must hold a second-class medical certificate.
- Hold an instrument rating. A commercial pilot is presumed to have an instrument rating. If not, his/her commercial pilot certificate will be endorsed with a prohibition against carrying passengers for hire on day VFR flights beyond 50 NM or at night.
- Receive and log ground training from an authorized instructor or complete a home-study course.
- Pass a knowledge test with a score of 70% or better. The commercial rating knowledge test consists of 100 multiple-choice questions selected from the airplane-related questions in the FAA’s commercial pilot test bank.
- Accumulate appropriate flight experience and instruction . A total of 200 hours of flight time is required when training in a CFR 141 Certified School.
- Successfully complete a practical (flight) test, which will be given as a final exam by an FAA inspector or designated pilot examiner; it will be conducted as specified in the FAA’s Commercial Pilot Practical Test Standards.
Commercial Pilot Training Costs & Fees
The cost of obtaining your Commercial Pilot License is made up of airplane rental, instructor time, books and other study materials, pilot supplies, and the test fees. Obviously the final cost depends heavily on how many lessons you find you need before you’re ready to take the tests. Another significant variable is the airplane you decide to fly while learning. Many people choose to fly a Cessna 172, while they’re pursuing a Commercial Pilot license, and that will typically cost $130~$150 per hour to rent. Instruction fee is in the region of $45 to 65/hour, depending on the type of flight and instructor required. You can minimize the costs of “ground school” by studying the books by yourself as much as possible and turning up to each lesson well prepared.
For a reasonably realistic working budget you should consider airplane and instructor time, add approximately $500 for books and materials and $150~$300 for a headset (you’ll probably want your own) and charts, and about $500 for the FAA exam fees, paid to the examiner. The fess and costs of training is “pay as you go” so, the costs are spread over the time you take to complete your license, so typically expect to be paying this total over eight to twelve months. Budget for a regular monthly outgoing based on the amount you can afford, and schedule your flight time limited by that and what your lifestyle will allow. Look on this as a journey, rather than a single achievement, as you’ll presumably want to continue flying after you have been awarded your pilot certificate.
