Commercial Pilot Training

A Commercial Pilot Certificate allows you to fly an airplane for compensation or hire. It is the final capstone of the Professional Pilot Program. At this point your experience behind the yoke could begin paying for itself.
The Commercial part 61 training is composed of two simultaneous courses. The single engine course is 10 hours of flight in a Piper Arrow. At the same time students are mastering multi-engine procedures in the Piper Seneca. Students reach the 250 hours and take the single engine commercial flight test. That is immediately followed by a Multi-Engine add on checkride.

How long will it take to get my Commercial Pilot License?
Full-time students who dedicate themselves to obtaining a commercial pilot’s license can do so within a 4 week period. If you have a regular job and can only dedicate a few hours a week, then it may take about four(4) to six(6) weeks to accomplish it.

What kind of Aircraft will I train in?
Wayman Flight Training utilities Piper Seneca aircraft with a Garmin 430 system  for multi-engine training. Piper Arrows are flown for commercial single certificates. This is a “complex” aircraft with retractable landing gear and a variable-pitch propeller.

How many flight hours are required?
