Course Description:
Congratulations on your successes as a pilot and for your decision to earn a commercial pilot certificate.  By now you have logged a significant number of hours as pilot in command and have gained some great experience.  You have likely earned your instrument rating, and possibly a multiengine aircraft rating.  In your journey to earn your commercial pilot certificate you will be rewarded in many ways.  Whether or not you choose to fly as a commercial pilot, the knowledge and experience that you will gain will give you even more confidence in and out of the cockpit and give you a whole new perspective on flying.  Your flying skills will be increased to a much higher level and your new certificate will open doors in aviation for you that you never imagined before.  Flight time and experience will be gained easier as you will now be able to be paid to fly professionally.  In recognition of your credentials as a pilot it is likely that your insurance rates will be lower.  Your commercial training will pay for itself!

In this course, you will learn about advanced aircraft systems; advanced aerodynamics, performance, and weight and balance principles; emergency procedures; and commercial pilot maneuvers.  You will be well prepared for your commercial flight training and your FAA Knowledge Exam.  Welcome to the world of professional flying!
