FAQ » » There is a single engine license that is only 140 flight hours, but if the minimum hours needed are 200, why are there only 140 hours of flight?

That is a good question. The reason why our International Pilot Program is only 140 flight hours is because we are approved from the FAA to graduate our students with 140 hours in the Commercial Multi or Single License Part 141 Course. You can complete the rest of the hours to reach the 200 (or 250) required by your Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) by the Pilot in Command (PIC) flight experience, also known as time building. Those flights are conducted with another student. You will do cross-country flights and share the time and cost of the flight. It will be more affordable for you to do this PIC flight experience than to add the extra hours during your Commercial course.
