Become a Pilot

There hasn't been a better time in recent memory than now to become a pilot.  The industry is changing and pilots are now a rare commodity.  Boeing and Airbus both project that there will be an industry need for another 800,000 pilots by 2040.  The growing worldwide demand means two important things for those looking for a rewarding career.  More available jobs and more money as air carriers compete for highly trained aviators to fill the cockpit:

Private Pilot

The Private Pilot's License is the first step for most aviators whether flying for hobby or career.  As a private pilot, you are allowed to fly passengers (not for hire) such as your family and friends and split the costs of the trip.  You can fly in visual conditions often requiring as little as 3 miles of visibility and remaining a good distance from flying into clouds.  While you will receive a minimum amount of instrument training during your Private Pilot License, Nexgen will focus on additional instrument training to prepare the pilot for what to do in the case of inadvertent flight into instrument conditions.

 

Requirements

- Be at least 17 years of age

- Be able to read, speak, and understand the English language

- Obtain at least a current third-class medical certificate

- Receive a minimum of 40 hours of flight time including training and          solo flight

- Pass a knowledge test as well as the practical test

Minimum Requirement Course Costs
Based on minimum FAA requirement of 40 hours, national average is 71 hours.

Instrument Rating

While the Private Pilot Certificate allows you to fly an airplane, the Instrument Rating allows you to fly the aircraft in a much wider realm of weather.  It is recommended that all pilots earn an Instrument Rating to greatly advance their skills, situational awareness, and safety.  It allows you to fly through the clouds in low visibility conditions down to as little as 200 ft above the ground and 1/2 mile visibility.

 

Requirements

Certificated Flight Instructor

According to the FAA, the CFI is the pinnacle for Pilot Licenses.  It is an often necessary license in order to advance one's career in aviation, but also will allow the pilot to learn more flying knowledge than any other rating.  Most pilots once finished with their training, become instructors as their first career as a pilot, and teach fellow aviators the "tricks of the trade", as they earn the necessary hours to move up to bigger iron.
