Becoming a Private Pilot brings the world of flying to your fingertips. After passing your checkride, you can proudly say you are part of the 1% of the U.S. population that can call themselves pilots!
To get paid to fly, you'll need a Commercial Pilot License. Part of your training will include learning how to fly complex airplanes, making a few cross-country trips, and learning more about aerodynamics & aircraft systems.
Earning a Flight Instructor Certificate is an excellent way to gain experience and advance your career. At Cape Fear Aviation Flight Training, all Flight Instructor Trainees train with our Chief Instructor Dave Herwig who has sent CFI applicants to checkride with a 100% pass rate1.
To get hired by the airlines, each person needs a total of 750 hours or 1,500 hours depending on whether or not the person flew as a pilot in the military or strictly as a civilian.
We understand that the cost of building these hours is extreme, so we encourage everyone that is interested in becoming a professional airline pilot to become a CFI after passing their Commercial Pilot checkride.
1 100% pass rate is as of 3/26/2019 and cannot be guaranteed for any applicant.
