    LEARN MORE ABOUT THE MFC FAMILY

Here you will find the basics on every license and rating we offer, and how you can use them. Click on each heading to get the basics!

Like we explained on our Getting Started page, all licenses consist of a required amount of flight training and ground school hours (which will entail a Flight Test and Written Exam). Depending on the ratings you may choose to add on, they may or may not also require the same.

Why do the Professional Pilot Course, instead of everything separately?


Every pilot starts with the Private Pilot’s license. Many aspiring pilots have the end goal of making it their career, so we have designed an integrated Professional Pilot Course – our most popular course. It includes the Private Pilot’s License, Night Rating, Commercial Pilot’s License, and multi/IFR ratings. This will make you a fully employable pilot in the industry! Since the Professional Pilot Course integrates different ratings (such as the Night Rating and Multi/IFR Ratings) into your Commercial flight training hours – versus getting all licenses and ratings separately— it is quicker and more cost-effective!

From here, you can move on to any of the other licenses or ratings listed below!

Professional Pilot Course


INCLUDES:


  • Private Pilot’s License (PPL) – $9,633.00 

  • Commercial License (CPL) - $24,125.00 (encompasses Night Rating)

COST SAVINGS: The hours required for the Night, Multi, and Multi IFR Ratings can count towards the Commercial requirements of 200 hours – so we combine this into the CPL rather than training outside of the 200 hours to reduce student costs!



Partially through your flight training already? You don’t have to start from scratch to jump into our Professional Pilot Course – just arrange an appointment with our Chief Flight Instructor to put together a flight training plan to pick up where you left off, to maximize the benefit of combining training hours for your CPL requirements!
