Commercial Pilot Opportunities 

Flying as a commercial pilot is more than making a living in the sky.
It’s all about being excellent at your craft and taking your flying to a new level of professionalism.
You will be preparing to fly faster, higher and further than you’ve flown before in more complex aircraft.
It is very gratifying to command a complex airplane smoothly
through the sky and use it to perform a mission, especially when you get paid to do it!

Here is a list of just a few of the commercial type jobs out there:

Aerial Photography and surveying
Charter and Air taxi pilot
Bush Pilot
Missionary Aviation Pilot
Commercial Airline Pilot
Fire fighting Pilot
Police and traffic control
Federal forest patrol
Professional Flight Instructor
Test Pilot
Recreational and Tour Pilot

What will I be learning?
 
Commercial Pilot training involves learning to fly your aircraft more smoothly and precisely. You will be working on fine tuning your stick and rudder skills through
maneuvers such as Chandelles, Lazy Eights and Pylon turns. You will also be working on your cross-country flying skills and logging time in complex aircraft.
Your cross-country flights in Hawaii will take you to our neighbor islands of Maui, Molokai and Oahu and some of the most awesome scenery on the planet!

This usually puts the candidate within range to qualify for the 250 minimum total hours toward the Commercial certificate.
