A Deep Dive into the CAP Program | MFT

In today’s dynamic world, the aviation industry is experiencing a surge in demand for skilled and professional pilots. Melbourne Flight Training’s Career Aviator Pathway (CAP) Program offers an accelerated flight training experience designed to shape students into professional pilots. This blog post will provide an in-depth look at our CAP program and what it entails.

The CAP Program: An Overview

The CAP program is a full-immersion flight training course aimed at students with zero flight experience. In a span of just six months, we transform novices into fully certified multi-engine flight instructors. The program offers over 250 hours of hands-on flight time, providing an intensive, immersive learning experience that fast-tracks the journey to becoming a professional pilot.

Step-by-Step Process

Step 1: Private Plane Course

The journey begins with the private plane course. This course lays the foundation for flying, teaching students the fundamentals of aircraft operation, navigation, emergency procedures, and more.

Step 2: Instrument Course

The next step is the instrument course. Here, students learn about instrument flight rules (IFR), which are crucial for flying under conditions where visual cues are not sufficient. This includes understanding weather patterns, interpreting flight instruments, and mastering advanced navigation techniques.

Step 3: Commercial Single Engine Course

The final phase of the program is the commercial single engine course. This course prepares students for the responsibilities of being a commercial pilot, including complex maneuvers, advanced aerodynamics, and the business aspects of aviation.

Post-Program Opportunities

Upon completion of the CAP program, students have the opportunity to interview as flight instructors at Melbourne Flight Training. This not only allows them to accumulate more flight time but also reinforces their professional pilot training. Furthermore, we offer industry knowledge and connections to help our graduates secure jobs and advance their careers as airline pilots.

Transparency and Cost

At Melbourne Flight Training, we believe in complete transparency. Our CAP program holds no hidden fees and is dedicated to our students’ success. The total cost for a single student is $93,130.77, with a cash discount available.

It’s important to note that the average student may require additional hours beyond the FAA minimum to complete the program. These hours are billed at the posted hourly rate. Supplementary costs, such as repeat lessons and Designated Pilot Examiner re-testing, are not included in the total price.
