Required Certifications


After completing programs at the academy, students will absolutely gain senior certifications and practical flight time up to 1,500 hours. These are the most important conditions to become a captain in the near future at any airline in the world.

1, Commercial Pilot License (CPL).

For those interested in pursuing flying, the Commercial Pilot License (CPL) is an indispensable credential in learning.

To become a commercial pilot, students must have a CPL license issued by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration). Not only do Commercial Pilots need this license to get hired at major airlines, they also have to accumulate from 1000 to 1500 flight hours as a tool to assess their experience.

2, Certified Flight Instructor (CFI).

Initial training program typically divides into 3 stages: 1 week of theory; 3-6 weeks of the ground school and simulator training and 25 hours of flight experience, including testing one-on-one with the FAA flight instructor.  After being well-trained, pilots must attend regular training and simulation tests once or twice a year throughout their careers.

To qualify for a FAA license, applicants must be 18 years of age and have flight experiment at least 250 hours of flight time.




3, To work on multi-engine aircraft, students must have CFI and MEI certifications.

Skylead offers two courses: 24 months and 30 months corresponding to 1000 and 1500 flight hours in turn. 100% of students after graduation receive: 1 commercial pilot license (CPL) and 3 flight instructor degrees (CFI, CFII, MEI).

The constitutive value of the pilot is accumulated according to the number of flight hours. Therefore, students can early become Captains of any airlines because they don't have to study any more certificates after finishing the Skylead's cooperative affiliate program.

Certainly, every commercial pilot needs a flight instructor license - CFI for a variety of reasons. For most pilots, it's the most affordable way to accumulate flight time while working to become a commercial airline pilot.
