Commercial Pilot


Ready to join the ranks of professional aviators? In addition to FAA-required subject areas, our Commercial Pilot Course prepares you for real-world commercial flying. Upon completion, you will have the knowledge and experience to successfully transition to a commercial pilot position.

Since there are many variables that factor into the time building requirements for the commercial certificate, AFI is unable to provide a cost estimate for this rating. Candidates training under FAA Part 61 will need 250 hours total time while those under FAA Part 141 need 190 hours total time. A cost estimate for the completion of the commercial certificate can be more accurately given to those already holding a private pilot certificate.

▪ Be able to read, speak, and understand the English language

▪ Obtain at least a current third-class medical certificate
