WHY ACCELERATED?

Our Accelerated Flight Training program is used by Flight Schools and Airlines around the world to train pilot candidates for flight crew positions. Combining structured procedures with one- on one personalized learning, we have trained students without prior experience in 13 days to become a Private Pilot. Your training will be fast- paced but structured and at any time you will know where you are in your training. We have developed a training program to get your Commercial Pilot’s License in 6 months or less. Accelerated Flight Training will save you time and money.

 

WHERE DO WE TRAIN?

Training for our Part 141 Flight School is held at Waterville Airport in Maine, where you don’t wait in line for take- off, yet you are able to experience the high-density airspace of Boston and New York. During your course of training, you will even fly as far South as Miami, Florida. This kind of experience will shape your piloting skills for the future. With Airlink you will train in real weather conditions and in a fun- personalized training environment. Training for Instrument Rating or Commercial Pilot is also conducted at our Florida location at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. We recommend training in Florida during December – May. All training conducted in Florida is under Part 61.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

During the Commercial Pilot training, you will live, breathe and think aviation. You will follow our structured course syllabus, which outlines every flight lesson. One of our instructors will track your progress and be there to answer any questions you have. You will fly 4- 5 times a week, sometimes twice a day. If you don’t fly, you will be in the simulator or classroom- preparing for your next flight or studying for the practical test. Once you submit the Enrollment Form and the $150 application fee, we will review your application and confirm your admittance within 7 days. You will receive our latest school catalog which includes information about the Commercial Pilot Program, information about the area, hotels and attractions. This package also includes FAA knowledge test books and study materials. The above training is referenced to Part 141 to be completed in the minimum amount of flight hours (200 hours). Additional training may be necessary. Commercial Pilot Training under Part 61 requires a minimum of 250 hours total flight time.

 

PAYMENT:

To enroll in the Commercial Pilot course you will have to fill out an Enrollment form and submit a $150 application fee. Then you can pay upfront by credit card, cash or check. You need to maintain a positive balance in your account.
