For accelerated programs the checkride is prepaid and booked in advance with a non-refundable prepayment required in the training contract.
Maximum Efficiency

Our CAP Program is the most time and cost-efficient FAA Part 141-certified flight training program available in the United States, featuring the highest amount of flight time at the most affordable cost.

The FAA Commercial Pilot (CPL) course is a 25-flight hour course to make you a fully certified FAA Commercial Multi-Engine Pilot

Our CAP Program begins with foundational knowledge and skills taught by our instructors, leading students to obtain their private pilot’s certificate. Students then embark on their flight instrument course, building on the skills learned from their PPL and learning how to fly safely in inclement weather or low-light conditions. From there, our CAP Program students begin the commercial single-engine course, granting them the certifications needed to turn their passion into a professional pilot career.

The next step is where our CAP Program takes off. Students are assisted in receiving their CFI-A and CFI-I flight instructor certificates, granting them the skills and experience to teach what they have learned to others. Students are then guided through a commercial multi-engine course, blazing the trail for future opportunities with airliners. Finally, they are assisted in obtaining their MEI certificate, a culmination of all the skills and knowledge they have learned throughout the program.

At this point in our CAP Program student’s journey, they would have all the licenses and skills but still lack the required flight time necessary to become an airline pilot. From here, Melbourne Flight Training hires those within our program to teach others as flight instructors. The additional 1,260 hours of flight instruction reinforces the knowledge they have obtained and sets in motion a continuous cycle of pilot candidates, all aiming for new, successful horizons.

 

Part 61 flight training is for pilot candidates looking to maximize their training flexibility and schedule.
