Obtaining the commercial pilot certificate will allow you to fly for hire. This is the first step towards the goal for those wanting a career in aviation. However, it is also good for those wanting to just continue to learn and be better pilots. During commercial pilot training, you will learn to fly the plane more precisely and coordinated than you ever did before. You will learn limited aerobatic maneuvers like lazy eights and chandelles and learn to be more precise with power off accuracy landings.
Most people choose to get both Single Engine and Multi-Engine Commercial certificates at the same time. Platinum Aviation can offer this using any of our single engine aircraft both Cessna, Cirrus or Piper Saratoga with the multi-engine portion done in the Seneca I or the Diamond TwinStar. On the practical flight test, you will demonstrate most of the maneuvers in the single and then go back up in the Seneca to do multi-engine operations. This method allows you to get the Commercial and Multi-Engine Certificates concurrently.
For those wanting to do only Single Engine Commercial or only Multi-Engine Commercial, we do offer personalized instruction leading to those ratings as well.
Although it is possible to get a Commercial Certificate without holding an Instrument Rating, we strongly recommend against this, as you will have severe restrictions on your operations as a commercial pilot.
