What is Pilot-in-Command (PIC) flight experience?

FAQ » , , » What is Pilot-in-Command (PIC) flight experience?

Pilot-in-Command (PIC) flight experience is earned when you are the sole manipulator of the controls and operating an aircraft in which you are rated. Professional airline careers require a minimum amount of flight hours in order to qualify for pilot positions, including specific PIC time requirements. Our students earn PIC flight experience typically with a time-building partner onboard; however, students may conduct these flights solo based on their country’s Civil Aviation Authority’s requirements. Most commercial airlines have minimum PIC hours listed in their hiring requirements as well.
