Commercial pilot Single-Engine Flow Chart

Commercial pilot Multi-Engine Flow Chart

Stage 1

Private Pilot License

Private Pilot course comprises a minimum of 35 hours of ground school and 35 hours of flight instruction. Following completion of these components, students will undergo a written exam and a checkride. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be awarded the FAA Private Pilot Certificate.

Stage 2

Instrument Rating

Immediately following the completion of the Private Pilot Program, students seamlessly transition into our Instrument Rating Program. This program equips students with the skills and experience necessary to conduct instrument operations in conditions of reduced visibility.

The Instrument Rating Program is essential as the majority of commercial flights operate under Instrument Flying Rules (IFR). Program includes a minimum of 30 hours of ground school and 35 hours of flight instruction. Flight training is conducted using both our state-of-the-art RedBird Flight Simulator and actual aircraft.

Upon completing the required training, students undergo a written exam and checkride. Successful candidates are then awarded the FAA Instrument Rating, which is appended to their Private Pilot Certificate.

Stage 3

Commercial Pilot, Single Engine Land

During Instrument Course training, students can simultaneously pursue their Commercial Pilot Certificate, resulting in both time and cost savings. Our Part 141 Commercial Pilot Course Curriculum comprises 120 flight hours and 35 hours of advanced ground school.

A significant portion of the curriculum focuses on solo flight, meeting specific flight distance requirements. Since these flights are conducted solo, students save on flight instructor fees.

Training within this program utilizes various aircraft to enhance flight skills and comply with FAA regulations. Additionally, students must accumulate a minimum of 10 hours of flight time in complex or advanced avionics aircraft.

Stage 4

Commercial Pilot, Multi Engine Land

In addition to acquiring the Single-engine Commercial Pilot Certificate, obtaining the Multi Engine Rating is essential. This rating is mandatory for pilots intending to operate higher-performance aircraft with two or more engines. Students will undergo training for this rating using our multi-engine aircraft: The Beechcraft Duchess (BE-76).

With the completion of this phase, the vocational stage of pilot training concludes. However, this marks just the beginning of your flying career. Continuing education is necessary to progress towards the goal of becoming an airline pilot. Please refer to the chart below for the next stages in the program:

Additional Education

Upon completion of the Professional Pilot Program at SkyEagle Aviation Academy, international students will have accrued approximately 200 flight hours. While this amount may not meet the hiring requirements of most airlines and charter companies, which typically seek pilots with around 800 to 1500 flight hours, there are alternative pathways to consider.

Charter companies and major domestic airlines often prioritize candidates with higher flight hours. Therefore, individuals interested in pursuing a career in aviation may find it advantageous to become a flight instructor to gain valuable experience. SkyEagle provides training tailored to meet the goals of those looking to become flight instructors, offering the best education possible to prepare them for this role.

The Professional Pilot Training Program at SkyEagle is designed to be efficient and cost-effective, providing international students with the necessary training for employment opportunities. Additionally, the program offers flexibility to accommodate individual needs and preferences.

Flight Instructor Academy


Becoming a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) is an excellent strategy for advancing your career in aviation. To excel in this role, it’s crucial to not only demonstrate proficient flying skills but also master aviation theory. Moreover, emphasis should be placed on learning effective teaching methodologies and understanding the principles of human psychology.

If your goal is to obtain an ATP Certificate, accumulating a minimum of 1500 flight hours is mandatory. Working as a flight instructor offers a practical path to reaching this requirement. Typically, it takes around two years of experience as a flight instructor to accumulate the necessary flight hours to qualify for the ATP Certificate.

Embracing the role of a flight instructor not only enhances your flying proficiency but also provides invaluable teaching experience that can significantly propel your career in the aviation industry.

To qualify for a flight instructor position at SkyEagle Aviation Academy, candidates must be either a U.S. Citizen or Resident, or possess valid work authorization permitting employment in the U.S. Additionally, candidates must have successfully completed all required flight training courses, including the necessary flight instructor courses.
