The commercial single license will enable you to work without any restrictions in any airline or with any operator utilizing single engine airplanes. This license is the best of both worlds since you can start flying singles and move onto twins once you have the required experience and ratings.

Commercial pilots work in major airlines such as Delta, regionals like American Eagle, mail/cargo carriers like FEDEX, and business jets for big corporations. Most pilots gain the experience required for these jobs by working as flight instructors, charters and tour pilots, glider & banner towing, and crop dusting. TAA Flight Training will train you with the skills, knowledge, and professionalism needed to propel your career forward.
