Epic’s Professional Pilot program is the leading part 141 approved accelerated FAA commercial pilot training course. [+]

Epic’s Professional Pilot program is the leading part 141 approved accelerated FAA commercial pilot training course.

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.... [-]


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.

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. Additional topics covered in this course are ATC communications, navigation from one airport to another, pre-flight planning, fuel planning, instrument testing prior to takeoff, weather evaluation, and Cockpit Resource Management. CRM is the utilization of all available resources that include situational awareness, optimal decision making, communication, stress, and a discussion of various scenarios that an instrument pilot may encounter....

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.

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.
