What does a commercial rating (certificate) mean for an airplane pilot who holds a private pilot certificate? Simply stated, a “commercial certificate” enables a private pilot to be compensated for flying airplanes. In order to become a professional airplane pilot (employed pilot), you must first earn a commercial pilot rating. However, before you can get a job as a “commercial pilot” you will need to build your flight hours (at least 1,000 flight hours). 

Go from "Zero" to 1,000 flight hours and into a Career as a Commercial Pilot

Most student pilots can earn their commercial certificate at 250 flight hours, but only if they are committed. It’s a lot of work but does not take much time (9 to 12 months). However, to get hired by an airline or a commercial airplane company, pilots need 1,000 flight hours. Obviously, there is a huge “flight hour gap" between earning a commercial pilot certificate (250 hours), and the 1,000 hours it takes to become a paid airline or commercial pilot.

Most commercial rated pilots build their flight hours (closing the "flight hour gap") by going beyond the commercial pilot rating to earn a “Certified Flight Instructor” (CFI) certificate. With a CFI certificate, commercial pilots can teach new pilots to fly, all the while gaining the 750 or so required flight hours needed to land their first industry pilot job. Cessna 152 Cockpit

Student pilots of Upper Limit Aviation can earn all of their FAA certificates through ULA, including their CFI and CFII certificate. Once they have their CFI they then can apply to become a paid flight instructor with ULA (employment with ULA as a flight instructor is not guaranteed). In doing so, the ULA student's goal is to build their required flight hours (1,000 hours) as a CFI in preparation to apply for industry pilot jobs with a commercial operator. Essentially, through Upper Limit Aviation a student pilot can go from a novice to a commercial pilot who flies airplanes for a living.

Positive Quotes:  “One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say "i love you", "i'm sorry", "i appreciate you", "i'm proud of you"...whatever you're feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it...cause a smile today for someone else...and give plenty of hugs.” ― Steve Maraboli

Clarity Quotes:  “People who lack the clarity, courage, or determination to follow their own dreams will often find ways to discourage yours. When you change for the better, the people around you will be inspired to change also....but only after doing their best to make you stop. Live your truth and don't EVER stop.” ― Steve Maraboli
