Requirements for a Commercial Rating:

The commercial pilot certificate is where you will demonstrate to the FAA that you have a safe, professional command of your aircraft and are prepared for in flight emergencies.

The commercial certificate will allow you to fly (in limited scenarios) passengers and/or cargo for hire. This is the first step toward becoming a professional pilot. Commercial pilot training will build on skills you already have from your primary flight training and instrument training.

You will demonstrate a greater precision in flying, flight planning and understanding federal regulations, as well as a greater knowledge of weather and aircraft systems.
