Flight Training Programs
1Private PilotA private pilot is one who flies for pleasure or personal business without accepting compensation for flying. It allows the pilot to take command of any aircraft for any noncommercial purpose and gives almost unlimited authority to fly VFR.
2Instrument RatingAn instrument rated pilot will be able to fly in marginal visual or instrument meteorological conditions (low visibility and/or clouds). The instrument rating provides more flexibility for a flight that otherwise would be affected by imperfect weather.
3Commercial PilotA commercial pilot may be compensated for flying. Training focuses on a better understanding of aircraft systems and a higher standard of airmanship.
4Multiengine RatingA multiengine rated pilot can fly airplanes with two engines. Training focuses on improving piloting skills, multiengine aerodynamics, and multiengine and engine-out flight operations.
