Aviation

Courses are intended to be taken by those wishing to further their personal development. Whether you take the courses in a classroom or online, there are a variety of specialized study areas.

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.

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States". American colleges are funded by "tuition" charged to the student, which is often quite expensive, very commonly reaching into the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Instrument Rating Course

Legacy Aviation
Campus Full time 110 hours September 2018 USA Philadelphia

All students are trained vigorously on instrument flying in our flight simulator as well as in a physical aircraft. Navigation in both a simulator or actual aircraft requires great focus on each and every instrument, therefore allowing the student to perfect his instrument flying skills without the use of visual references. During training the student will be trained to fly on instruments during climbs, descents, straight and level flight, standard rate turns, steep turns, holding patterns, precision and non-precision approaches, normal procedures, abnormal procedures, and emergency procedures.

[+]

Reinforce safety by becoming an Instrument Pilot.

It is a known fact that flying at night is much more difficult than flying during the day. That being said, in both Canada and Europe, an instrument rating is required by law in order to fly at night. With an instrument rating, a professional private pilot is no longer limited to flying only by visual references. He can now enter the clouds for the first time, flying solely by the instruments within the cockpit. Having an instrument rating will give you peace of mind during low visibility and low ceiling situations.

Multi-Engine Rating Course

Legacy Aviation
Campus Full time 28 hours September 2018 USA Philadelphia

A multi-engine rating allows a pilot to operate as pilot-in-command of an aircraft with more than one engine. During training, the student will be exposed to a new aircraft with two engines, and be trained by a qualified and proficient instructor pilot on normal, abnormal, and emergency procedures. Extensive time will be allocated towards engine-out procedures, or the loss of an engine during takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, approach, and missed approach phases of flight. In general, multi-engine flying keeps you busier because you are now monitoring and managing two separate engines. The instructor pilot will also train you to proficiency on stalls, steep turns, single engine taxi, short field and soft field takeoffs and landings, crosswind landings, and a variety of different real flying scenarios.

A multi-engine rating allows a pilot to operate as pilot-in-command of an aircraft with more than one engine.

The multi-engine rating is for those pilots who want the security of having a second engine available in the event of an engine failure. The multi-engine rating is also essential for pilots moving up to charter, corporate, or airline aviation. Up to this point, you have maintained proficiency in a single engine aircraft. However, the multi-engine rating will allow you to fly airplanes with two, three, four, or more engines.
