Student Phase (Student Plan)

Sporty’s Pilot Courses are used for Private Pilot License, Instrument Rating and Commercial Pilot License training. Each course is divided into phases with ground and flight training included. Students will be able to prepare for ground and flight lessons for better performance.

1. Private Pilot License

40-60 Hrs Flight Time
Private Pilot License is a certification that allows the individual to operate an aircraft for personal, non-commercial purposes.

2. Instrument Rating

50-60 Hrs Flight Time

An Instrument Rating involves additional training beyond a Private Pilot License (PPL) and typically includes extensive ground school instruction and flight training. During the training, pilots learn how to use various instruments and navigation aids, such as radio navigation systems and global positioning system (GPS), to fly an aircraft safely and accurately.

3. Commercial Pilot Single Engine Land

20 Hrs Flight Time
A Commercial Pilot License (CPL) is a certification that allows a pilot to operate an aircraft for compensation or hire. In other words, a CPL enables a pilot to work as a professional pilot, such as a charter pilot, corporate pilot, or airline pilot.

4. Commercial Pilot Multi Engine

20 Hrs Flight Time

CPL-ME certification is a rating that allows a pilot to operate multi-engine aircraft for compensation or hire. This certification is an add-on to the Commercial Pilot License (CPL)

5. Certified Flight Instructor

A CFI is a highly trained and qualified individual who is authorized to provide flight training to pilots seeking to obtain a Private Pilot License (PPL), Commercial Pilot License (CPL), or other advanced ratings and certifications.
