Our Professional Pilot Course is designed for people who want to earn their Pilot’s Licenses for Commercial purposes; those who wish to fly for an airline, cargo or charter carrier just to name a few options. In order to get to your goal of becoming a Professional Pilot you must earn Licenses and Ratings in a stepwise manner. This is the order of training:
This course will take you step-by-step, through all of the Ground Schooling and Flight Training required to earn your Commercial Pilot’s License and Instrument Rating. The Flight Training Portion of the course will take you from 0 hours to a minimum of 190 hours via your Private Pilot’s License, Commercial Pilot’s License and Instrument Rating.
You will begin your training with 10 weeks of Ground School at the Karachi Aero Club; Mondays through Fridays from 9am until 1pm. The Ground School classes will cover the following subjects:
Once your Ground Training has been completed you will move onto the Flight Training phase. Flight Training is conducted on our fleet of Cessna Aircraft which make for very good Basic and Instrument trainers.
During the Flight Training phase, you will learn how to control the aircraft in the air and on the ground. Here is a list of some of the maneuvers you will learn during the Flight Training portion of the course; this is a short list to server as an example, there are many maneuvers but we cannot list all of them in the interest of word count in this article:
Your Flight Instructor will brief you before and after each flight so that you know what to improve and what to prepare for before the next flight.
You will likely be required to fly all three models of our training aircraft, Cessna 150, 152 and 172 during your training for your Private Pilot’s License and Commercial Pilot’s License however, we recommend earning your Instrument Rating on our Cessna 172 as it is a better platform for Instrument Training and longer Navigation/Cross-Country flights.
It’s important to remember that every student is different and that everyone learns at a different pace. Some students manage to get through their Private Pilot’s License in the CAA minimum of 40 hours while it may take some students 50 hours. Similarly, it may take one student 40 hours for their Instrument Rating while it takes another 55 hours. The harder you study and more you prepare for each flight, the easier it will be.
The Professional Pilot Course outline on our website lists all of the costs which are to be incurred by the student aside from CAA Medical, Examination and Licensing fees. These costs are based on our Ground Schooling package and the hourly rate for each aircraft. The aircraft rates include fuel and the instructor. They are also based on the minimum number of hours required by the CAA to earn each License or Rating. If students need extra training the cost will increase accordingly.
The total time allotted by the CAA Pakistan for completion of the Commercial Pilot’s License and Instrument Rating course is 24 months. If this time is exceeded, additional hours as per CAA Pakistan rules are to be flown. The approximate cost for this course is 3.4 million Pakistani Rupees.
