Commercial

FAA regulations require a commercial student pilot to have a current FAA Private Certificate, and hold at least a current FAA 2nd class Medical. They must be at least 18 years of age, and able to read, write, and speak the English language. At the time of the FAA Practical Test, the student must have gained a minimum of 250 total logged flight hours, which must include 100 hours of pilot-in-command (PIC) time, 10 hours instrument instruction, 5 hours of night PIC, 10 hours in a complex aircraft, 50 hours of PIC cross-country, including specified experience.
