Day 1


First, you'll learn and become licensed to fly. Upon completing the Private Pilot portion of the program, you'll receive your Private Pilot License - the foundation of every pilot's career. This license permits you to act as pilot-in-command (PIC) of an aircraft under clear weather conditions, or visual flight rules (VFR).

You'll be introduced to your first training aircraft, the Piper Archer TX. In this aircraft, you'll learn flight maneuvers, aircraft control skills, and traffic pattern operations. You'll gain the knowledge and ability to successfully and safely navigate an aircraft.

Course topics include: flight maneuvers; aircraft control and navigation skills; traffic pattern operations; cross-country flight planning; weather reports and services; dead reckoning; airspace; and proper aviation terminology.

Day 53


Your next adventure will be learning how to fly an aircraft in less-than-perfect weather conditions. You'll learn how the pilot and aircraft work together to navigate obstacles of cloudy skies and low-visibility by use of aircraft instrumentation. By mastering aircraft instrumentation of the Piper Archer TX, you'll experience the joy of navigating through hours of flight with no reference to the ground - only to break through the clouds and discover the runway exactly where you expect it to be.

Course topics include: instrument flight rules (IFR); cross-country procedures; air traffic control operations; navigation systems; flight instrument emergency procedures; and partial and full-panel configurations.

Upon completion of this course, you'll earn the Instrument Rating, which qualifies you to fly under instrument flight rules (IFR). This phase of your training is essential— because the skills you'll gain will be used every day of your professional pilot career.

Day 107


This phase is intensive, challenging, and fun. As your first commercial course, you'll perfect your flight skills, while learning about the fundamental realities of being a professional pilot in a multi-engine aircraft. By the end of this course, you'll be licensed to act as pilot-in-command (PIC) of a multi-engine aircraft - and be compensated for it.

Unlike any other program in the country, AeroGuard gives you the opportunity to fly 3 diverse aircraft - the Piper Archer TX, the Piper Seminole and the Cessna 152 - each in complex situations. This course exceeds the minimum requirements set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), for the experience of a lifetime.

During this course, you'll learn: advanced multi-engine flying; upset recovery training; and airline pilot training.

Once you've conquered our Commercial Multi-Engine course, you'll earn the Commercial Pilot Airplane Multi-Engine Land Rating. So, from here on out, you can be paid for your piloting services in any multi-engine aircraft.

From day 1 of our program, you'll be taught to think and act like an instructor. And in our Certified Flight Instructor – Multi-Engine (MEI) course, you'll become one. You'll develop the confidence and skills required to instruct an aviation student from the passenger seat.

When you complete our Certified Flight Instructor – Multi-Engine (MEI) course, you'll be licensed to teach students in a Multi-Engine aircraft.

Day 215


This course is the final step before becoming a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) of both single and multi-engine aircraft. The course provides an add-on license to the Commercial Multi-Engine License you will have already earned.

You'll enhance your piloting skills by performing advanced maneuvers and procedures in the Piper Archer - at a higher level of execution. You'll be amazed by how far you've come after just a few months in the program.

At the end of the course, you'll be licensed for paid pilot services in a single-engine aircraft. The license also serves as the prerequisite to obtaining your flight instruction certificate for single-engine aircraft.

Day 215

Certified Flight
Instructor (CFI)

The final step of your training program is becoming certified to teach in a single-engine aircraft. At this point, you'll be fully prepared to take on any flight - with an expert understanding of the operations involved in being a pilot and instructor. You'll prove yourself by teaching not only instrumentation, systems, and flight controls, but also the entire spectrum of flying.

During the CFI course, you'll demonstrate your understanding and mastery of aviation operations and maneuvers from an instructional perspective.

Upon completion of this final course, you'll graduate as a licensed pilot as well as a Certified Flight Instructor. As the final step in our program and the first step in your professional pilot career, you'll be fully prepared for employment as a flight instructor with AeroGuard
