Commercial Pilot Initial Ground & Flight courses are the next step for those who have received a Private Pilot's License. Ask us about the opportunity to combine SEL and MEL courses to maximize your investment of time and the cost of your training.

Commercial Pilot Add-On courses are for a pilot who is an Instrument Rated Pilot in an aircraft other than an airplane. For Example: Helicopter Commercial Pilot Certificate. American Winds can assist you in obtaining an airplane Instrument Rating Add-On.

Commercial Category Certification course is for a pilot who is looking to have a career as a commercial pilot flying multi-engine airplanes. Nearly all corporate flight departments and airline companies fly multi-engine airplanes.

A Multi-Engine Rating allows for students to fly an airplane with more than one engine. This is an important and exciting step for those who wish to become career pilots. The equipment is more complex than a single-engine aircraft and therefore requires a higher degree of skill. This certificate expands your options and give each the ability to fly farther and faster than before.
Multi-engine flight training is done in either our Piper Apache with Geronimo conversion or "Turbocharged" Piper Seneca.
