Advantages of Accelerated Flight Training with Flying Academy

Save Time

The average pilot training program can take a few months and up to a year. With the accelerated course, you’re likely to complete all of your training in just a few weeks. With this shorter training program, student pilots train up to eight hours a day, five days a week, learning everything they need to know to become a safe and competent pilot.

Save Money

Save money by participating in the accelerated flight program instead of the traditional one. With Flying Academy’s accelerated program, not only will you not repeat lessons that often, but you will also move through your training faster saving you money. You will also spend less money for accommodation and other costs that come with your relocation for this short period of time!

Training Locations

One of the main factors of flight training delay is poor weather conditions. But with our strategic location in Van Nuys, California, or the picturesque Corona, California- The weather is more than accommodating most of the year!

Great For Self Starters

Those participating in the accelerated commercial training program will likely need to learn all or most of the written test standards before training starts. When your training starts, you’ll hop right into the plane and start flying, working towards the total of  250 hours FAA requirement needed to become a Commercial Pilot.


Flight Experience and Instruction:

Flying Academy’s Accelerated Commercial Training consists of 15 hrs of dual received training with Certified Flight Instructor and 10 hrs of dual received in TAA or Complex Airplane.

To obtain a commercial certificate in an airplane under FAR Part 61 rules a pilot must have:

  • 250 hours of flight time, 100 hours of which must be in powered aircraft, and 50 must be in airplanes.
  • 100 hours of pilot-in-command time, 50 of which must be in airplanes.
  • 50 hours of cross-country time, 10 of which must be in an airplane.
  • 20 hours of training, including 10 of instrument, 10 of complex or TAA, and a smattering of cross-country and practical test preparation.
  • 10 hours of solo training, including a smattering of cross-country and night.

Pilot who don’t have the Experience per FAR 61.129(a)* will need to do TIME BUILDING (Please include links to our TB programs in the US) before the start of the Commercial Training. You can choose from 25, 50 or 100 hrs Time Building packages offered in our locations in Corona, CA and Van Nuys, CA.

For pilots who train in an approved FAR Part 141 program, the commercial certificate can be earned with less experience, at a minimum of 190 hours and the training program is based on the Jeppesen Commercial Syllabus.

*Extra training incurs additional cost at current rates.

What you can do with the certificate

Commercial pilot certificate is required for any type of flying where the pilot is being compensated. Jobs such as flight instruction, corporate pilot, agricultural pilot, banner towing, pipeline patrol, traffic reporting, and more require a commercial pilot certificate. Some positions, such as airline pilot or Part 135 charter pilot may require more flight time, additional certificates, or both.
