Professional Pilot Program

The objective of the professional pilot program is to prepare students for safe and effective careers as professional pilots. It is designed primarily for international students. Students who complete the program will be ready to fly commercially as a pilot. Typically, a pilot who completes the professional pilot program will work as a pilot in banner towing, corporate flight, or other general aviation industry segment. Many students will continue after program completion to become flight instructors to build the flight time requirements for airline pilot careers. Students must hold a FAA private pilot certificate for admission to this program. Completion time is approximately 8 months. Admission requirements include holding an FAA medical certificate, FAA private pilot certificate, and satisfy all requirements of the enrollment agreement including satisfaction of all prior financial and performance requirements of private pilot training if the private pilot training was completed at Wayman Aviation Academy.
