The Private Pilot Career


Being a private pilot is an opportunity to start and evolve in the highly desired and glamorous profession of commercial aircraft pilot in the future.

Of course, to be a commercial pilot you will have to take a few more courses, however, if you are not a private pilot, you will never be able to start this journey. That is, it is the first and most important step in a pilot's career.

And for those who have the possibility to have their own plane, you can pilot it. The private pilot cannot be paid, nor can he fly an air taxi, work in an airline or be registered as an airline pilot.

However, he can fly private aircraft to accumulate flight hours as a pilot in command, and in the future to advance his career by taking other courses in the field.
