Commercial Pilot

A commercial pilot certificate will allow you to be paid for your piloting services. This certificate is available to pilots who have already earned their private pilot certificate.

The certification requirements for a commercial pilot certificate are significantly tighter than the standards you’ve already met for a private pilot certificate—so while training for your new certification, you’ll be held to tighter criteria. You’ll improve your ability to execute the flight maneuvers you’ve already learned, and you’ll add to your proficiency by learning more in-depth, commercial-performance maneuvers, too.

The enhanced skill set you’ll gain as a commercial pilot will allow you to gain professional employment as a pilot.

Request information about the commercial pilot certificate. Or, if you're ready, apply now.


Flight certificate programs are delivered in accordance with CFR Part 141 under Lynn University’s CFR Part 141 certificate. Simulator certificate programs are offered in accordance with CFR Part 141 under Lynn University’s CFR Part 141 certificate. You’ll receive your FAA-issued certificate after completing all certificate requirements and passing all examinations.
