If you want to become a professional pilot in two years or less then this is the program for you. The Professional Pilot program is designed to meet the needs of students who plan a career as a pilot in commercial aviation. The program leads to FAA certification as a pilot with private, instrument and commercial certificates, and for those training in airplanes, you will earn a multiengine rating as well.
Both airplane and helicopter students will have attended ground school and will have taken the FAA knowledge exams for Certified Flight Instructor and Instrument Flight Instructor ratings with the option to accomplish the required flight training as an add-on at the end of the program.
We can also provide the flight training required for the Certified Flight Instructor and Instrument Instructor ratings in both airplanes and helicopters and the required flight training for the airplane Multi-Engine Instructor rating.
You will attend ground classes and fly technologically advanced "glass cockpit" airplanes or late model helicopters at the Lake Superior College Center for Advanced Aviation at Duluth International Airport. Our fleet of airplanes includes full glass cockpit Cirrus SR20 and Cessna C-182RG single engine aircraft. For multi-engine training, we utilize the Piper PA-44 Seminole. Our helicopter students fly in the Schweizer 300C and Robbinson R-44 helicopters.
