Do you dream of making flying your career? With demand for pilots at an all-time high, there has never been a better time to start. At Sebring Flight Academy, our commercial pilot program will put you on the path to your airline or corporate job for a fraction of the price of an aviation college.
2)Earn your Light Sport Certified Flight Instructor certificate. No Instrument rating or Commercial Pilot certificate required!
Begin working for us as a flight instructor and build time towards your Instrument rating, Commercial Pilot certificate, and Airline Transport Pilot certificate.
We estimate that you can go from zero to Commercial Pilot for less than $40,000. How can we get you there for so little money? By taking advantage of the often-overlooked Sport Pilot Instructor certificate! This certificate allows you to start earning money as a flight instructor after just 150 hours. You don't even need an Instrument rating or a Commercial Pilot certificate! Compare this to the normal career path for pilots, which requires you to have over 250 hours before you can start flying for compensation or hire.
With a Sport Pilot Instructor certificate, as outlined in FAR 61 Subpart K, you can provide flight instruction in a light sport aircraft for sport pilot students, sport pilots seeking a flight review, and sport pilot instructors. Since all our aircraft are light sport aircraft, and since we specialize in sport pilot training, we can offer a unique opportunity to start your aviation career over 100 hours earlier than anyone else!
All our aircraft use modern glass-panel avionics from Garmin, including an autopilot and flight director. Corporate aviation companies value experience with such systems, so training in our aircraft will make you stand out from the crowd when you apply to your dream job. That's the Bristell difference.
