An FAA Private Pilot License requires training that covers all of the theoretical and practical knowledge to operate the airplane safely and authorizes the holder of the license to act as Pilot in Command of a civil aircraft. In other words, you are now cleared to be in charge of the airplane and can now pursue the Instrument Rating and Commercial Pilot Licenses. At Delta Qualiflight you will train on the single engine Piper Warrior II for the Private Pilot Airplane Single Engine Land course.
An FAA Instrument Rating gives the holder of a Private or Commercial License the additional privilege of flying IFR (Instrument Flight Rules). An instrument rated pilot can fly purely by reference to the flight instruments in situations where navigation by line of sight is not possible. This means you can fly in the clouds as an instrument rated pilot, giving you a great deal more freedom to fly in conditions that would keep a non-instrument pilot on the ground.
An FAA Commercial Pilot License allows the holder to fly for compensation or hire. In other words, you can seek employment and get paid to fly with a Commercial License. Both the multi-engine and single engine commercial pilot courses are offered at Delta Qualiflight. For the Commercial training you will fly the single engine Warrior II and multi-engine Seneca.
An FAA Flight Instructor License allows the holder to teach pilots how to fly. As an instructor you pass on what you have learned to others and gain valuable experience in the process. To become a flight instructor you must first have a Commercial Pilot License and as a commercial pilot you will already know the theoretical and practical aspects of flying airplanes, so the focus of instructor training is developing the ability to effectively teach others. Through teaching you can attain a much deeper knowledge of the material and so the more your students learn the more you will learn as well. Certified Flight Instructor courses for Airplane Single Engine Land, Multi-Engine land and Instrument are offered.
An FAA Airline Transport Pilot Certificate (ATP) is the highest of all licenses and the start of reaching the apex of the profession. It allows the holder to act as Pilot in Command of an airline aircraft, meaning you can be the Captain with your ATP License. Both single engine and multi-engine ATP courses are offered.
