ATF 2203 - Commercial Flight III

This is the third of three courses needed to complete the training required for the FAA Commercial Pilot certificate for single-engine airplanes. This course covers the fourth and fifth phases of commercial pilot training: commercial maneuvers and complex airplane training. It includes 10 hours of dual instruction, 20 hours of Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) instruction, and 12.5 hours of ground instruction, stage checks, and pre-/post flight briefings with an FAA approved flight instructor. The course requirements are met when the student earns his or her Commercial Pilot certificate for single-engine airplanes.

It should be noted that the hours above are based on FAA-syllabus minimums, and students will often exceed these minimum hours. The cost for these additional flight hours is not covered by the course fee. Pilot students are expected to fly at least three flights per week, not counting Sundays. Students who cannot commit to such a schedule are not likely to pass.

This course also has special requirements which students must meet prior to enrolling:
1. students must hold a minimum of an FAA third-class medical certificate (current second class for GI Bill students),
2. students must be U.S. citizens or have TSA authorization to start flight training, and
3. students must meet with the Program Manager to verify documentation and review course requirements and flight training costs.

Florida State College at Jacksonville provides the flight instruction through a College-contracted flight school.
