A certificate is an academic achievement indicating that an individual has effectively completed training or received specific instruction in a particular area or field. Certificates may also indicate mastery of a particular skill or that an individual has passed a test or set of tests. 

Many of the subjects included in aviation deal with designing and manufacturing airplanes, but there are also areas which focus on air traffic and the environmental impact of planes and other aircraft. General aviation can also be separated into civic and military aviation.

Education in the United States is mainly provided by the public sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: state, local, and federal, in that order. The common requirements to study at a higher education level in United States will include your admissions essay (also known as the statement of purpose or personal statement), transcript of records, recommendation/reference letters, language tests

The Aircraft Dispatcher program is a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved training that incorporates classroom and lab instruction preparing Aircraft Dispatcher students to pass the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Written, Oral, and Practical Certification Exams, which are administered by FAA Designated Aircraft Dispatcher Examiners upon graduation. This certification is highly recognized and powerful. Those who possess it have the opportunity to apply for positions not only as Flight Dispatchers, but also as airline Crew Schedulers, Crew Planners, Navigation Data-base Specialists, Meteorology Assistants, Airport Flight Operations Agents, Ramp Control Tower Agents, and many other flight operations positions. Most candidates who hold the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher certificate will succeed in obtaining almost immediate employment in the airline industry, and some of the benefits are unique to the job description. Airline Dispatchers are NOT Air Traffic Controllers. Air Traffic Controllers work for the FAA, and separate air traffic. Think of Air Traffic Controllers as "traffic cops." Aircraft Dispatchers work in the field of Airline Operational Control, in the airline’s “Nerve Center,” an environment very similar to NASA’s Mission Control. As an FAA Licensed Aircraft Dispatcher, you are authorized by the FAA to exercise equal authority (50/50) and shared decision making with the Pilot-in-Command (Airline Captain) of each flight under your control. Aircraft Dispatchers control the airlines’ Flight Operation (sometimes globally), typically all from one centralized Operations Control Center (OCC) location. Working “behind the scenes”, side by side with other airline professionals like senior Dispatch Managers, Crew Schedulers and Planners, Maintenance Controllers, and Meteorologists, Aircraft... [-]

An Airline Transport Pilot certificate is the highest-level certificate that a pilot can achieve. ATPs are authorized to act as pilot-in-command of a scheduled air carrier’s aircraft.

To obtain an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate or ATP, a pilot must be 23 years old, and have logged a total time of 1500 flight hours. The ATP is required for a pilot to become a captain on any corporate jet or commercial airliner. The Airline Transport Pilot Standard is the standard that all captains strive to maintain. Once you have obtained your ATP, it is safe to say that a pilot is much more marketable, and will receive more employment offers as a pilot. The instructor pilot will determine if the student is ready for the flight test or if he needs additional time to meet the ATP Standards.... [-]

Becoming A Certified Flight Instructor

To become a copilot for a commercial airline or a Fortune 500 company, you must gain experience by building up your total flight time. The FAA requires 1500 hours of total time for you to have an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate, and this is required to fly as a captain on most turboprops or jets. For pilots who enjoy teaching, becoming a CFI or Certified Flight Instructor is the best way to go. As a commercial pilot you can also build your time by doing aerial photography, banner towing, and sight-seeing tours.

A student training to become a certified flight instructor is being prepared to train student pilots, private pilots, instrument pilots, commercial pilots, and multiengine pilots. That being said the student is only as good as his instructor. Becoming an instructor is very rewarding but, it comes with much responsibility. To sleep well at night after an eight hour day of pilot training, an instructor must know in his heart that he has given 100% effort to the students that are depending on him. Before signing a student to fly solo in the traffic pattern or on a cross country, the instructor should have extensively measured the student’s ability to perform well on his own. There can be no doubt in your mind when your signature is placed on a certificate or on an application authorizing a student to fly solo. Where there is doubt, the instructor will have no peace. So we... [-]

If you enjoy flying and want to be paid for your ability to take care of your passengers or freight, going on for a commercial pilot license is the next step.

All of the flight time that you have accumulated during your private pilot and instrument training will be credited towards your total time for a commercial license. To get a commercial pilot license you must be eighteen years old and have logged a total of 250 hours of flight time.

All commercial pilot students will be trained by a qualified and proficient instructor pilot. During training students will be trained on maneuvers such as slow flight, landing and departure stalls, chandelles, lazy eights, steep spirals about a point, and steep turns. Although you will become very proficient in the commercial maneuvers, it’s important to note that during all commercial airline flights pilots are limited to thirty degrees of bank angle while flying with passengers on board. This is so the passengers are not frightened, and that the pilot is always in total control of the aircraft.... [-]

A Private Pilot Certification Course implements a concrete foundation of aeronautical education and flying technique.

A pilot’s license is their ticket to freedom. Proper training is the foundation on which habit patterns are created and therefore it is imperative that all students initiate correctly. The goal as a private pilot is to be granted authorization in taking passengers flying. This also means you will now acquire not just one, but two substantial responsibilities; your aircraft and your passengers. Given the weight of these new obligations, all students are disciplined to meet steep standards from the first minute of training, until the last. Once this temperament has been conveyed by the instructor and embraced by the student, the performance of the student will be strengthened.... [-]
