The Commercial Pilot license is required if you are to be employed as a pilot, Liberty Aviation is here to help you achieve that goal.

A Commercial Pilot must have superior knowledge and insights into the airplane, weather, the FAA’s rules and regulations, and operations within the National Airspace System. Liberty Aviation is here to develop your skills and ability to be a master of the aircraft in which you fly. You will be reviewed and evaluated on this advanced knowledge as well as your ability to smoothly and precisely control the airplane throughout a variety of required maneuvers designed to push the airplane to its limits while maintaining orientation to your surroundings both inside and outside of the aircraft.

Remember, you don’t have to get a job in aviation if you get a Commercial Pilot license.
