Commercial Certification Course

UFS provides commercial certificate training in accordance with FAA regulations. These regulations dictate the following requirements for a commercial certificate:

Eligibility Requirements

  • 18 years of age
  • Valid FAA second class medical
  • Pass the FAA Commercial Pilot written exam
  • Pass the FAA Commercial Pilot practical flight test
  • Upgrading your certificate to a Commercial Pilot certificate is the next logical step toward a career as a professional pilot. A Commercial Certificate will allow you to fly passengers and cargo for hire. In other words, you can now earn money as a pilot instead of having to pay to be a pilot.

    The Commercial Certification course can be broken down into three phases of training. Phase one consists of expanding your knowledge of VFR cross-countries and night operations. Aviation physiology, aeronautical decision making, and regulations pertaining to the commercial pilot will also be learned. This phase ends with a solo cross-country with three points and a straight line distance of 250 nautical miles from the point of departure.

    In phase two, you will be introduced to a complex airplane. This plane will have a much more powerful engine and articulating propeller and landing gear system. You will learn performance and aerodynamics that are appropriate to this type of aircraft. Also, the skill necessary to safely fly a complex aircraft will be attained. Commercial flight maneuvers will be introduced and practiced during this phase of training.

    The objective of the third phase is to provide the instruction and practice necessary to become proficient as a commercial pilot with or without an instrument rating. During this phase, you will practice the procedures learned previously until you are at commercial pilot standards.

    Here at United Flight Systems we pride ourselves on having a greater than 90% first time pass rate which is exceptional when compared to national averages of 60% to 70%.

    United Flight System's Commercial Certification Course costs an average of $12,000*.

    *Here at United Flight Systems, we train our pilots to "maximum proficiency, not minimum standards." Individual costs may vary. The average cost of the Commercial Certificate includes the 100 hours pilot-in-command and 50 hours cross-country training that is required by Part 61.129 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.

    UFS will provide the best maintained aircraft, best facilities, and most professional instructors in the southern USA.
