On successful completion of the Commercial and Certified Flight Instructor certificates, and a minimum of 250 hours in airplanes, the student is in a position to apply to entry-level jobs in the aviation industry. Most entry-level jobs are for flight instructor positions and a pilot will normally work as a Certified Flight Instructor for a minimum of 12-18 months. At that point, assuming the pilot has accumulated approximately 1,000 – 1,500 hours, he/she meet the standards of the airline industry.
Atlantis Aviation provides career advisement and job search assistance for each of our graduates.
