Course Work

This program is designed to provide the necessary education and background that will enable students to be prepared both technically and professionally for entry-level aviation positions. Training to become a pilot at Spartan College will give you the experience needed to sit for Private Pilot Certification, Instrumentation Rating, Commercial, and Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) modules, which are included in the program.

Private Pilot Certificate

Pilots usually start with a private pilot certificate, also commonly known as a pilot license, that allows them to carry passengers. These are normally single-engine two to four-seat aircraft.

Instrument Rating

Once you have your private pilot certificate, you can add an instrument rating. This is necessary for pilots to have in order to fly through weather conditions that require navigation with instruments.

Commercial Pilot Certificate

Also known as a commercial pilot license, once certified, pilots can receive payment for their services. Examples of those services are flight instructing, banner towing, single-pilot small cargo flights, and aerial photography. The FAA requires a certain minimum of flying hours, depending on your training facility, to qualify for this exam.

Airplane Multi-Engine

With a general pilot certificate, you can fly a single-engine plane. A multi-engine certification allows you to fly more powerful aircraft. Most pilots-in-training obtain their single-engine private pilot certification/license first.

Certified Flight Instructor Certification

A CFI certificate enables a pilot to train student pilots at flight schools. To qualify you must already have earned your commercial pilot license.

Certified Flight Instructor Instrument

This is similar to the previously described CFI certificate, with an add-on for training others to use instruments to navigate through weather conditions.
