Look toward the skies
It’s not a job if you don’t get paid—and a commercial pilot certificate allows you to do just that. With this certificate you can charge for your piloting services. The commercial pilot certificate takes you deeper into your training and knowledge, with more rigorous standards to meet and more in-depth maneuvers to execute.
What you’ll learn through the commercial pilot certificate program
- Advanced flight maneuver skills
- In-depth commercial performance maneuvers
Learning doesn’t get more innovative than this.
At Lynn University, we embrace technology by encouraging our students to engage with course content through iPads, and our professors can develop custom course materials.
