Professional Pilot
FAR Part 141:

FAR Part 61:
Training done under FAR Part 141 follows a detailed syllabus that has been FAA-approved. The advantages of training under Part 141 include saving time and therefore money because of the lower time requirements that are needed to complete the courses. When training under Part 141 the student will follow a syllabus that lists the requirements and learning objectives of each flight and ground school session. 
When training under FAR Part 61 the student will be trained to meet the requirements that are listed in this Part. Requirements for this part include flight experience, aeronautical knowledge, and eligibility requirements. In order to be eligible to receive a certificate or rating under this Part, the student must meet all of the requirement and limitations that it list.

Our professional pilot courses are designed specifically for students who are looking to pursue a career in aviation. These courses will take you from zero time to commercial multi-engine in as little as 8 months. (*It is not uncommon for students to finished in as little as 6 months.) Because Airgo is FAA certified to train students under Part 141, we are able to give our students a choice to train under both Part 61 and under Part 141.

What Certificates and ratings will I get through Airgo's 
 Professional Pilot Program?
Through Airgo’s Professional Pilot Program you will receive a Private Pilot Certificate, an Instrument Rating, a Commercial Pilot Certificate, and a Multi-Engine Rating. Upon completion of all four courses Airgo recommends that you also complete our Certified Flight Instructor course in order to build time and make money doing it. *Many students are offered jobs as flight instructors at Airgo upon completion of the CFI course. 

Private Pilot Certificate- The holder of a Private Pilot Certificate has the privileges to fly for pleasure and carry passengers with them on flights. A Private Pilot cannot accept payment for flying. This is a very basic Certificate and normally requires anywhere from 35 to 50 hours to complete depending on the students ability and knowledge. As with any Certificate or Rating that you receive at Airgo, a student will not take a flight test until they have been determined by their instructor to be safe and ready to take the test. 

Instrument Rating- A pilot without an Instrument Rating is limited to only flying in “VFR” (Visual Flight Rules) conditions whereas Instrument Rated pilots can fly in “IFR” (Instrument Flight Rules) conditions. This rating teaches the pilot to fly from point to point without outside visual references and by only using the aircrafts instruments. Instrument Rate pilots do not need to where they are going in order to get there. Upon completion of this rating a pilot will typically have logged anywhere from 100 to 120 hours. 

Commercial Pilot Certificate- In order to be eligible to work as a flight instructor or to fly for hire a pilot must have a Commercial Pilot Certificate. Airgo’s Commercial Pilot course teaches the student to fly at much stricter standards than they would as a private pilot. It also introduces the student to complex aircraft and the advanced systems that are associated with more sophisticated aircraft. 

Multi-Engine Rating- Most all airlines fly aircraft with more than one engine. In order for a pilot to be eligible to fly a multi-engine aircraft they must have a Multi-Engine Rating. Through this course the pilot will be taught the different aerodynamical factors that are associated with a multi-engine aircraft and the unique handling characteristics that are associated with such aircraft.
