This course is designed to take a student with zero flight training experience to the Multi Engine Commercial Pilot level in as little as 6 – 8 months. The focus of this commercial pilot training course is for the student to first receive a strong foundation in general aviation knowledge. Once proficient in the basics a strategic, full immersion program is launched for the student’s particular learning style. The next step is for students to develop their actual flight skills and practice essential safety procedures using real-time simulation in our Frasca Tru Flite and Mentor level 5 field training devices. This combined scenario based training with computer based training allows the student the comfort of learning and making mistakes on the ground. This boosts confidence that they know and can successfully perform procedures and maneuvers before beginning actual flights in the aircraft, saving both time and money during commercial pilot training. Our Professional Pilot program mimics that of major airline training, preparing you for the airline from day one. The WORLD Needs Commercial Pilots Quick The world is going through a massive pilot shortage! Every year Boeing produces statistics concerning the worldwide demand of pilots for the upcoming decades. As you can see, it’s essential that you begin your commercial pilot training now to make sure you take advantage of this incredible demand while it lasts. A bright outlook for the airline industry are purchase orders for more aircraft and the addition of routes. This increase of aircraft and routes means globally airlines are going to need to hire more pilots to not only keep up with the retirement age but the addition of these resources and routes. There is an urgency for flight schools to recruit more student pilots and successfully produce top-quality Commercial Multi-Engine pilots to quickly fill regional airline needs. With pressure to fill open slots, airlines are looking for students that completed their commercial pilot training at a flight school that prepared them for the fast-paced and advanced technical learning environment. This is why Epic has developed our own commercial pilot training programs with the expectations of an airline training program to quickly develop new pilots to professionals. What Type of Commercial Pilot Training Is Recognized by Other Countries? Licenses and certificates issued by the Federal Aviation Authority of the United States is recognized globally by all Civil Aviation Authorities. A particular country might have a slightly higher total logged hour requirement or additional theory but all training validated by the FAA is counted when you co-validate your license(s) in your country. For CAA’s that require additional flight hours or theory we simply add those hours into your course and customize your commercial pilot training. This ensures you return home with everything you need in order to begin applying for your job at an airline.
