The instrument rating will enable you to fly the aircraft with little to no visibility, which is an airline industry standard. You will learn to correctly perform holding patterns and accurate instrument approaches using full and partial panel techniques. You will practice IFR cross-country procedures and master navigational systems. Our aircraft include more modern features such as; Multiple Moving Map Displays, Terrain and Traffic Warning Systems and XM weather which will put you ahead of the curve. After earning your IFR Certificate, you will have the skill to fly in clear or cloudy skies.
Commercial Pilot Training
After you earn your Commercial Pilot Certificate, you can be hired to fly! Our locations on the East Coast give you the perfect opportunity to fly in multiple types of airspace and practice right alongside the jumbo airliners. This diversity, along with our intensive career-oriented program, will give you perspective from many different angles and teach you to maintain composure when emergencies arise. Give yourself the edge that airlines and corporate flight departments look for when hiring potential pilots.
Becoming a Flight Instructor, and practicing that skill in the workforce, demonstrates to future employers that you not only understand the inner workings of Aviation, but that you are constantly re-learning and teaching complex concepts on a regular basis. This also builds in a very affordable way to build time to get to your goal, without risking your ground knowledge getting rusty in the process. flyGATEWAY encourages graduates of our program to move into an instructor position in-house, making your transition and ability to build time as easy as possible.
