Together with an instrument rating it opens many doors to a flying career. Your commercial flight training will teach you how to operate a more sophisticated, complex aircraft, with retractable landing gear, a variable pitch propeller and more power than the trainer you used for primary training. You will learn to fly to closer tolerances and venture further away to airports on cross‐country flights. Should you decide an aviation career isn’t for you, the Commercial certification can still provide you with additional skills to further make you a safer and more confident pilot.
