Commercial Certificate Requirements:

Minimum Flight Times

The minimum flight hour requirement for this certificate is 120 hours. Under ideal conditions, this flight experience can be obtained in two quarters. Many students complete part of their flight training during the summer quarter when flight weather is optimum for cross country flights. The flight experience is accumulated primarily in the Cessna 172. A Piper Arrow is utilized for 10 hours of complex aircraft training. A Class II medical certificate is required for commercial operations, but is not needed for training.
