Why get a Commercial Pilot License?

With a Commercial Pilot License you open up the opportunity to get paid to fly. Your options are nearly limitless: airlines, charter, corporate, crop dusting, glider towing, flight instruction and the list goes on. Although many of these require additional training, none of these are possible without first getting your Commercial Pilot License.


 

What are the requirements to start training at Ace Flight School for a Commercial Pilot License?

The Commercial Pilot License is a huge milestone in aviation. It takes dedication and an ambition to learn and improve what you already know. To start the Commercial Pilot program at Ace Flight School, you need to have a Private Pilot License with a minimum of 200 hours including 40 hours of Cross-Country. An Instrument Rating is not required, but is very strongly recommended. If you are just starting out and have little to no experience, check out our Private to Commercial or Private to Multi-Engine Commercial Programs.

At Ace Flight School we like to see our students achieve their aviation goals in the most cost effective way. In order for this to happen we have decided to utilize the Block Account method over the Package Price method of billing. In order to put together a Package Price, schools take an average number of hours to complete the desired rating; however, this average will likely not be your total number of hours which could end up costing you more money. Using a block account will ensure that you receive every dollar of your paid training.

As a bonus, we give you a bonus for every Block Deposit made!
For a $500 Block Deposit, you will receive a 5% bonus.
For a $1000 Block Deposit, you will receive a 10% bonus.
