A number of factors contribute to a pilot’s success as a commercial pilot. Successful commercial pilots have some commonalities that date back to the time when they were student pilots. Successful commercial pilots had great flight instruction from experienced and seasoned aviators - who always put safety first.

Moreover, successful commercial pilots had tremendous overall support from their flight school, being trained to develop proper habits that led to superior skill development. They also had scenario-based training from a reputable flight school who helped them get their first piloting job.
