ATF 2201L - Commercial Flight I
1 Credit Hour
(Offered as needed)
This is the first of three courses needed to complete the training required for the FAA Commercial Pilot certificate for single-engine airplanes. This course covers the first phase of commercial pilot training: cross-country navigation and flight review. It includes 33 hours of solo flight, 11 hours of dual flight instruction, and five hours of ground instruction and pre-/post flight briefings with an FAA-approved flight instructor. After completing this course, students take Commercial Flight II and III to meet the requirements for the Commercial Pilot certificate. It should be noted that the hours above are based on FAA-syllabus minimums, and students may exceed these minimum hours. The cost for these additional flight hours is not covered by the course fee. Pilot students are expected to fly at least three flights per week, not counting Sundays. Students who cannot commit to such a schedule are not likely to pass. This course also has special requirements, which students must meet prior to enrolling:
1. students must hold a Private Pilot, Airplane Single-Engine Land certificate
2. students must hold a minimum of an FAA third-class medical certificate (current second class for GI Bill students)
3. students must be U.S. citizens or have TSA authorization to start flight training
4. students must meet with the Program Manager to verify documentation and review course requirements and flight training costs.
Northwest Florida State College provides the flight instruction through a College-contracted flight school. NWFSC does not waive the course fees for this program for active duty military students using Tuition Assistance.
